The CLARAi VR technology lets researchers see a patient’s pain in real-time, offering a more accurate way to access pain levels.
Because pain is subjective, it can be difficult to measure and manage in patients that have a hard time communicating. To help overcome this challenge and improve patient care, the team from the University of Michigan created the CLARAi (clinical augmented reality and artificial intelligence) system, which relies on a sensor-equipped cap able to measure changes in oxygen and blood flow to the brain to access pain levels. That data can be sent to the clinician in real-time, who can view the pain intensity and location as red and blue dots through a pair of VR glasses.
