A mirror that warns you if you are wearing your personal protective gear incorrectly, and an exoskeleton that takes away the heavy lifting from healthcare staff are just two of the ways that Singapore General Hospital is making use of new technology to free staff from the more tedious and strenuous aspects of work and focus more on providing patient care. More details about these smart machines are available in the latest issue of Singapore Health (January -February 2023).
Also in the issue, read about a new Patient Decision Aid that empowers patients to manage gout better; the potential to reduce the risk of heart disease for hypertension patients by reversing heart muscle scarring; and the use of Traditional Chinese Medicine remedies to treat dry eye.
