Patient Safety Toolkit App

The Patient Safety Toolkit App displays the Trust’s Sepsis 6 guidelines to promote early detection of sepsis. The App displays interactive, menu driven content, a video library and allows the user to generate personal learning notes which can be stored and emailed.

The App can be used widely across clinical specialties and further work can extend the functionality to include additional content, track and record usage and progress and develop quiz/gamification elements to generate leader boards and departmental metrics.

Cystic Fibrosis is a chronic, life-limiting condition affecting children from birth who require twice-daily physiotherapy. The Fizzyo project deploys chipped sensors inside airway clearance devices and wearable activity monitors. The data collected allows researchers to examine how physical activity and airway clearance relates to changes in the health of children with cystic fibrosis. The team subsequently used gamification to improve the patient experience and engagement through linking breathing devices with a game engine running in Microsoft Azure. The data can then be visualised and analysed to monitor whether games can improve the way children do their physiotherapy.

StoryWall Interactive Storyteller

StoryWall uses computer vision to identify objects and deliver age-appropriate content in the form of interactive storytelling using the SOTA robot. For example, if child holds up an apple, SOTA will read Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

The algorithms allow the robot to hear, see, speak, understand and interpret the user’s needs through natural communication methods.

Functional Assessment of Disability

The evaluation of the extent of 'disability' compared to normal expected function is difficult and subjective, especially in children, making outcome evaluation unreliable.

This project developed a prototype of an objective disability tool using sensors / wearables. The sensors/ body sensor networks provide simple dash boarded baseline and 'disability' scores from simulated conditions.

Through partnership with Microsoft, GOSH has been recreated in a Minecraft world, where patients are able to explore before they visit and virtually meet other patients, helping to improve their patient experience.

Medical Imaging in Mixed Reality

The advances in Virtual Reality technology has enabled the addition of contextual information to two-dimensional medical scans, by rendering organ surfaces as they appear in the body, and allowing them to be viewed from different angles.  This project explored methods for streamlining the process of viewing 3D segmentations of 2D medical image data in Mixed Reality. A functional holographics pipeline dynamically loads 3D models at runtime from a holographic repository for viewing through mixed reality headsets.

Historically medical drawings are paper-based freehand drawings with associated problems of access and subjective assessment. This project created a cross-platform medical drawing App that presents data in a standardised, quantifiable, digital format enabling easy retrieval.

A working prototype allows freehand capture and drawing on standard templates of features such as lacerations and bruising, with automated quantification and separation of body areas.
