What Firebase, wearable devices and WebRTC have to do with the medicine? Often after a surgery patients have really hard time finding the rehabilitation services that they need. Although it sounds like a healthcare system problem it is sometimes caused by problems that could be overcome by technology. Traditionally the healthcare industry is slow to adopt modern technology but the rehabilitation and tele-rehabilitation in particular give us an opportunity to innovate a bit more aggressively.
For the past couple years we’ve been developing a solution in the fields of telemedicine that utilizes a real-time database such as Google Firebase, uses smart wearable devices such as smart bracelets and watches to collect valuable data, real-time audio-video communication such as WebRTC to connect people over the Internet. In this lecture we will discuss some of those technologies as well as some of the problems specific for the industry.
