To help clinicians to “see” patient pain in real time, the researchers from the University of Michigan have developed a new system. This new technology has the potential to objectively measure and identify pain in patients who can not communicate their symptoms.
The system consists of augmented reality glasses for clinicians and a cap containing brain sensors for the patient and uses artificial intelligence to convert brain activity data into a pain signature visualization. This helps the clinicians to assess the pain levels.
Measuring pain levels accurately is a difficult task and in case of emotionally challenged patients and children it is even harder. But use of this new system namely CLARAi (clinical augmented reality and artificial intelligence) can help this cause.
It measures the changes in oxygenation and blood flow to assess brain activity in response to pain. And then the data is interpreted by an artificial intelligence system to learn which brain signals are responsible for the pain response. The augmented reality glasses help the clinicians to view the red and blue dots which indicates the location and intensity of pain. Prediction rate of the device is 70%.
