Using Augmented Reality (AR) for medical applications – Part 1

Using Augmented Reality (AR) for medical applications – Part 1

This is the first of three articles introducing the concept of k-space and discussing how to plan for an exit pupil expander design.

Augmented Reality (AR) is no longer just for gaming. The accurate simulation of a real-world environment can also be beneficial for multiple work environments, including the medical field. AR enables doctors to better explain a disease or treatment to a patient, as well as plays a role in planning (and in some cases performing) surgeries and therapies. Some are taking it a step further, using 3D visualization of DNA test results or to view patient records for quick analysis and diagnosis. This technology can also be used in the classroom, training medical students through the use of interactive 3D anatomical models. And for medical sales, the use of a virtual experience can demonstrate their equipment quickly.

Optical heart rate sensor simulation using Zemax OpticStudio

Optical heart rate sensor simulation using Zemax OpticStudio

In recent years, handheld, portable, and wearable medical imaging devices have grown in popularity, from fast on-site measurements during surgeries, to comfortable continuous monitoring during everyday tasks. The most common wearable example is the optical heart rate sensor used in sport bracelets and smart watches. The applied photoplethysmography (PPG) technology is a low cost, non-invasive optical method used for taking physiological measurements at the surface of the skin. This article demonstrates how OpticStudio can be used to implement a layered human skin model and simulate optical heart rate monitoring via the API.
