5G of industrial computers bring new opportunities for medical applications

- Mar 23, 2020-

Looking back on 2019, 5G is one of the biggest hot topics whether in China or abroad. From 2020 to the present, the "COVID-19 epidemic" has encountered black swan incidents worldwide, and has first greatly affected China. Fortunately, the whole country has been united, the epidemic situation has been effectively controlled, and production and “made in china” has quickly resumed. However, the current worldwide outbreak had a huge impact on the situation around the world.
Always, we believe that the epidemic will pass, and various industries will recover, and new technologies, such as 5G, artificial intelligence (AI), intelligent manufacturing, industrial automation will develop further.
In medical applications, due to its unique features: high speed, wide connection, and low latency, 5G will bring new opportunities to telemedicine, data mining, assisted diagnosis and treatment, smart terminals, and fast first aid. It will promote smart medical development, and push the construction of smart hospitals and 5G smart hospitals.


Ward robot, doctors do not need to walk through each other
The rounds robot has once shown itself. When combined with 5G networks, the ward robots can greatly improve doctors' work efficiency and realize real-time remote ward rounds. The doctor only needs to move the 5G-controlled robot to the bed with a joystick or mobile phone, and then use the screen and camera on the robot's head to interact with the patient in high-definition video. At the same time, the robot also has a variety of sensors that can collect patients' Data to help doctors make auxiliary judgments.

Remote clinic on ambulance
Time is invaluable for first aid. The latency between the doctor's and patient's examination equipment on the ambulance does not exceed 10 milliseconds. Even if the ambulance is flying on a high-speed road, it will not affect the data transmission speed at all. Before the emergency patient is arrived at the hospital, the emergency doctor has already done the basic treatment.
Using 5G technology, hospital experts can carry out diagnosis and treatment work thousands of miles away, especially in "remote areas", without leaving the office, such as remote pathological diagnosis, remote medical imaging diagnosis, remote monitoring, remote consultation, remote Outpatient, remote case discussion, etc.


Achieve virtually zero-latency "remote surgery"
Remote surgery may seem like a nightmare, but it is becoming a reality as technology continues to be mature. In reality, with the help of 5G networks, such surgical robots have appeared. The 5G surgical robot can be synchronized with the operation of the remote surgeon almost 100% without delay.
At present, remote surgery is guided by images under time-delay conditions, but 5G remote robotic arms are extreme better. Experts do actions in Beijing, the 5G remote robotic arm in Chongqing can perform surgery on patients, and truly achieve almost zero latency surgery.

Keeping pace with 5G, industrial computing systems are more stable
Not only telemedicine, but also in the areas of first aid, ward rounds, and mobile medical equipment, the application of 5G allows the share of real-time medical information and data, greatly improving the work efficiency of medical staff and bringing more comprehensive treatment services to patients. As an important hardware platform, Industrial computing products used in the medical industry will have more stable and excellent performance in the context of 5G.

At last:
In general, the unique advantages of 5G, including high speed, wide connection, and low latency, are used in medical treatment to remove the obstacles of off-site distances. Via Online video communication , it will undoubtedly allow greater utilization of medical resources, and bring new opportunities to smart healthcare.
