PICTA Reflects on the Past and Looks to the Future!
28 May 2020
The spring of 2020 has been unlike anything we are used to or have experienced before. Despite the major changes related to social distancing, remote work, etc., we have been operating at full capacity here in PICTA. Of course, clinic-related activities have dropped off substantially, and the Metis Forum originally planned for this spring has been pushed back, but at the same time we have been able to focus on other things, such as a strategies for the future, network development and the development of new projects. Naturally, this also involves reflection on what has been achieved thus far in PICTA's almost 9-year journey, and the choice of direction for the future. We would like to share some of those observations.
Lab with Live Scenarios when the Test Ambulance is Running
7 May 2020
With the development of a mobile test bed for the pre-hospital care chain, entirely new possibilities for research, testing, development and innovation of new products and work processes are created. Many user groups now see the potential in testing the ambulance for simulations together with PICTA and partners.
Comprehensive Mapping at the TEAPaN Project Kick-off
18 March 2020
The two-year collaborative project TEAPaN's kick-off and workshop for all of its partners took place in February. We asked project manager Stefan Candefjord from Chalmers three questions in order to find out more.
The app that alarms motorbike accidents by itself
12 March 2020
A new motorcycle accident alerting system is currently being tested on Swedish roads. Thanks to an algorithm developed at Chalmers University of Technology, information from the sensors in the motorcyclist’s mobile phone can be used to identify that an accident has occurred and automatically call for help via SOS Alarm.
Training in Augmented Reality for Emergency Medical Care
10 March 2020
Continuous development, and thus improved capabilities for more efficient care, within various areas of the pre-hospital care chain, is a common theme of the upcoming Metis Forum. One of the companies that will present its activities is called HeroSight. They specialise in the use of Augmented Reality in training for emergency medical care, among other things. We had three questions for Daniel Kindstrand, CEO and founder of HeroSight.
