This week we launched our newest Radboud REshape app : REshape HealthTalk.
Triggered when we found out about the story of Mr van Gockel using his iPad into communicate with his wife, we made a video-interview of it.
We realized that in many cases people have difficulties to communicatie after procedures, or due to their illness. Also there is a lot of communication done with hurdlles due to different languages. Not realy acceptbale we think. So we started to figure out how technology could help with this.
While we were at it we ran into some of our collaegues of the AI (Artificial Intellegence) departement of the Radboud University, that had actually a new technolgogy for that. Also the had a first version of an app ready, but were looking for usefull cases for it.
The result of this collaboration is the REshape HealthTalk app
Just select your own language and the one you would like to use to talk to a healthcare professional and start our conversation. Tons of conversations are preloaded, and while at it the screen flips back and forth, so you can leave your iPhone (or iPad, Android) on the table in front of you.
This app helps in those cases when you do not have a translator at hand, or just want to clarify something.
