TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -
Health care is not the place
one would think of to find video games, but local medical professionals are
doing just that.
These new technologies will
help prevent life-threatening conditions and injuries and many are actually ‘game-based'
in video game like therapies. Several of
these devices will be shown at a special presentation happening this
One such device to be
unveiled will be "smart sox", which will identify high pressure and high
temperature to prevent gangrene. Other
devices will help prevent falls and fractures in older adults, via "smart
shirts". The goal for all of these
devices is to help patients improve stability, healing and mobility.
The presentation event is
happening this evening from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Playground Bar and Lounge
located downtown near Congress and Fifth Ave.
It is a free event and is sponsored by an alliance and consortium with
the University Medical Center.
For those not able to make
the presentation tonight, tune in to Tucson News Now later today for a closer
look with Barbara Grijalva.
