Consider a world where you can assemble a hospital’s operating room just the way you assemble your living room. Imagine that you could buy different medical devices from different vendors, selecting each device due to its functionality, pricing or what ever property you prefer.
The research project OR.NET aims at making this possible by fostering manufacturer-independent networked interconnection of medical devices. OR.NET is funded by the BMBF and comprises more than 50 partners from academia and industry.
WS4D.org and the University of Rostock are participating in OR.NET as well. We are going to show our current results at the CeBIT 2014 from March, 10th till March, 14th. Come and visit us in hall 9, booth A08 to see our networked endoscope.
In cooperation with Karl Storz GmbH & Co. KG and Dr. Klaus Wagner from the Südstadtklinikum Rostock we enriched an existing endoscope with DPWS functionality and thus made in Plug’n’Play-ready. Together with Plug-and-Play-ready devices to measure a patient’s pulse and oxygen saturation we developed earlier, we created a medical dashboard combining the endoscopic images with vital signs – while completely dynamically interconnected.
