The technology solution using 3D imaging software and an Intel 3D RealSense camera integrated into a Panasonic Toughpad tablet has the potential to improve patient care and reduce the £5 billion impact on the NHS of treating wounds and ulcers.
A consultant surgeon in Burns and Plastic Surgery is pioneering revolutionary new technology to help treat patients with wounds using 3D imaging software that runs on rugged Panasonic Toughpad tablets and has been developed by Swansea-based health infomatics company GPC.
Engineers at BAE Systems have begun to use Panasonic Toughpad tablets to offer a quicker, smarter and more intuitive way of servicing Typhoon jets, the world’s leading combat aircraft.
The engineers at its Lancashire base are using the Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 tablet to complement the aircrafts' onboard health management systems. Before and after every sortie, the aircraft performs its own 'health check' and presents a series of findings onto the Maintenance Data Panel, located on the side of the aircraft. Engineers analyse this information and conduct a series of checks, in parallel with the pilot's pre-flight cockpit checks, to ensure the aircraft is safe and fit for flight.
