A heart-starting app

Posted Aug 23 2010 12:36pm
Thanks to ePatient Dave for sending me this link on Bodyshock The Future, containing the following story about AED4.eu. The video follows
Radboud University Medical Center in Nijmegen has built an emergency Augmented Reality display that allows you to look through your mobile phone's camera view and locate the nearest automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) located in a public place. It's the first independent database of AEDs in the world operated by an Academic Hospital. Data is collected by crowdsourcing and validated on-site by The Dutch Red Cross. Besides augmented reality also iPhone, Android and iPad apps are provided free. Focus is now Netherlands, soon broadened to Europe and then Global. Also, as an academic hospital, research is part of it of course. Coverage, usage, outcome etc.
