Accurate Motion Measurement
In a video, Irene Walsh, chief design officer at Complete Anatomy has provided an insight into their next update. One which brings a new feature only possible because of the new LiDAR Scanner in the new iPad Pro.
Using the new LiDAR Scanner in the iPad Pro, the App can use motion capture in three dimensions. Something that was not possible before. Enabling a new feature that allows healthcare professionals to accurately measure the range of motion of patients recovering from injury or surgery. While at the same time, able to visualise which muscles the patient is using. It can even show the range of the patient compared to their range goal.
The 2020-released iPad Pro is the first product Apple has added LiDAR technology. LiDAR, which stands for ‘Light Detection and Ranging’ uses light to measure the distance between the iPad and a surface. Therefore, in this case, the iPad Pro can provide accurate data on the movement of a patient.
Complete Anatomy can be downloaded for free from the App Store on iPad, but no specific release date has been given for the update. While it is free to download, a subscription is required to get full features.
The new iPad Pro is now available to purchase from Apple online starting at a Recommended Retail Price of A$1,349. Students and Teachers can save up to A$170 with Apple’s Educational Pricing Offer.
