Immersive Virtual Telepresence: virtual reality meets eHealth

, : Immersive Virtual Telepresence: virtual reality meets eHealth. Studies in Health Technology and Informatics 99: 255-262

Immersive Virtual Telepresence (IVT) tools are virtual reality environments combined with wireless multimedia facilities--real-time video and audio--and advanced input devices--tracking sensors, biosensors, brain-computer interfaces. For its features IVT can be considered an innovative communication interface based on interactive 3D visualization, able to collect and integrate different inputs and data sets in a single real-like experience. In this paper we try to outline the current state of research and technology that is relevant to the development of IVT in medicine. Moreover, we discuss the clinical principles and possible advantages associated with the use of IVT in this field.

The effect of a cereal supplement (S) during early lactation was compared on the performance and intake of ewes suckling 2 lambs while rotationally grazing pasture at stocking rates of 20, 17 or 14 ewes per ha. S at the high (H) and medium (M) sto...

The aim of this study was to identify Leptospira in urine samples of cattle by direct sequencing of the secY gene. The validity of this approach was assessed using ten Leptospira strains obtained from cattle in Brazil and 77 DNA samples previously...
