Exelus to demonstrate emergency telemedicine platform based on Microsoft's HoloLens

The technology company Exelus built an application that leverages Microsoft's HoloLens for telemedicine use and plans to demonstrate its capabilities at the Consumer Technology Association's 2018 Consumer Electronics Show, according to MSPoweruser.

The company's Nomadeec platform, based on HoloLens, identifies gestures to allow EMTs to interface with up to 10 Bluetooth diagnostic devices, including electrocardiogram readers and pulse oximeters. It then enables users to transmit readings to remote experts who can offer advice on interventions via teleconference.

Exelus believes its telemedicine platform can improve pre-hospital care and enhance offerings at rural hospitals, which may lack specialists.
