Veterans Use Apple Technology to Update Approach to Trauma Medicine

Various Apple products are increasingly used in medical settings, and health is clearly an area the company is very interested in. Normally the focus is on general health monitoring, but on Wednesday it posted a feature highlighting one perhaps overlooked use case – trauma medicine. Of particular interest is how veterans used products to help change approaches, via a product called T6.

T6 allows medical teams to input and analyze patient data in real time through iPad. In a hospital setting, data such as vitals and injury details are entered into the app and displayed on a large screen for the entire trauma team to see, along with standard-of-care guidelines and alerts. In the field, whether that’s in an ambulance or medical helicopter, or if T6 is being used by a military team or medic, the iPad app will allow real-time virtual communication between the person administering care and a trauma team in another location.

Adobe Shares Sneak Peek of 'Vectorize' Feature for iPad

On Tuesday, Adobe shared a sneak peek of the all new Vectorize feature, the next evolution of image tracing, coming soon to Illustrator on the iPad. Built on Adobe Sensei machine learning technology, Vectorize will enable users to transform any image and hand-drawn sketch into a crisp vector graphic with enhanced precision and control. This feature is especially powerful for creatives, who save time with the ability to go from paper sketches to designing on the iPad quicker, and gain the freedom to create anywhere with the mobility of the iPad and Apple Pencil. Vectorize is a Technology Preview and its performance will improve with time.
