William Carey New Medical Drone

October 16, 2015

 

THESE COOL GLASSES ARE NOT JUST A FASHION STATEMENT, BUT THESE GLASSES ARE USED BY WILLIAM CAREY'S COLLEGE OF OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE TELEMEDICAL DRONE CREATORS. MR SUBBARAO EXPLAINS MORE ABOUT THE HERO PROJECT. 


"Health care integrated rescue operations...it includes a drone and a telemedical kit that can be modularized."

 

THIS PROJECT WAS ENVISIONED AFTER THE HATTIESBURG TORNADO A COUPLE YEARS AGO AND THIS DRONE WILL SERVE AS A SOURCE OF LIFE-SAVING MEDICINE FOR PEOPLE IN NEED. 


"We believe there are potential benefits that can go into rural medicine, wilderness medicine, and also going into places such as hot zones...that there might be a chemical release or potential risk for Ebola and we wouldn't want the healthcare provider to go running in there blindly, we can send this in with some sensors." 

 

JUST SIX MONTHS AGO, THE COLLEGE OF OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE STARTED TO ITEMIZE ALL THE SUPPLIES THEY NEEDED...AND IT'S SAFE TO SAY THIS DRONE IS PRETTY AWESOME. 


"We've taken two modern technologies, both the drone and specifically multi-rotar or an octo-copter and telemedicine and here at William Carey. We're integrating these two technologies together, that way, not only can we diagnose a patient but we can treat them."

 

I'M HERE WITH THESE TWO BRILLIANT MEN WHO CREATED THIS TELEMEDICAL DRONE, WHICH WILL TRANSFORM THE WAY WE VIEW MEDICINE...REPORTING AT WILLIAM CAREY UNIVERSITY. I'M DEREK PIERCE, FOX 23 NEWS.
