Apple Shares How Valuable The Vision Pro Can Be In Healthcare

The Apple Vision Pro has been on sale since February 2 and while it’s only available in the United States, it’s already proven to be a popular device among those who have one.

But while the headset is a viable option for everyone, it’s in professional settings that it could take things to a whole new level. Now, Apple has shared details about how the Apple Vision Pro is being used in health.

In a lengthy Newsroom post, Apple detailed how people are using the Apple Vision Pro in a variety of different ways including when preparing to do surgery. One example explains how preop work can be down when planning a hip replacement.

More than 1 million Americans receive a knee or hip replacement surgery every year, and that number will continue to rise as the population ages. When surgeons use Stryker’s Mako SmartRobotics for total hip, total knee, and partial knee replacements, it can help lead to better patient outcomes like less pain and shorter recovery times, compared to traditional joint replacement surgeries. With the new myMako app, Stryker is extending a surgeon’s experience in and beyond the operating room with Apple Vision Pro and iPhone. For better preparation, myMako allows surgeons to visualize and review patients’ Mako surgical plans at any time in a brilliant, immersive visual experience.

Apple also details how collaboration can be increased thanks to the Apple Vision Pro, with apps already designed to do just that, while productivity is also a key aspect. Medical records are one aspect of health that continually improve and that’s one area where Apple Vision Pro can be helpful.

“Creating the first electronic health record experience for spatial computing was an exciting project for our developers,” said Seth Howard, Epic’s senior vice president of Research & Development. “With Apple Vision Pro, clinicians will be able to interact with their patients’ health information in new, immersive ways. We welcome ideas from the physician community about how this technology can expand the future of healthcare delivery.”

The Apple Vision Pro starts from $3,499 for the 256GB model while 512GB and 1TB versions are also available for those who need additional storage space.
