Patient Virtual Assistant
Together with ST Engineering, our team aims to improve the lives of bedridden patients who are staying in a hospital ward. Patient Virtual Assistant (PVA) is an application for the iPad which will be placed at the sides of their bed. PVA will streamline the ordering of daily hospital meals through the app, as well as help patients and nurses communicate if there is a language barrier between them, through the use of a multilingual conversation helper in the app. Additionally, the app will also be able to display the patient's vital signs (i.e. body temperature, pulse rate, respiration rate, blood pressure) from IOT-enabled sensors attached to the patient or the bed, in real-time.
As the app is designed from the ground up to be modular, other features such as infotainment, localization and doctor patient communication can be added as we go along.
