A Virtual Look Inside Your Body
There have been many attempts in the past few years to help doctors and patients connect through medical technology, like digitizing and centralizing medical charts; personal monitors that send vital health information to your doctor so you don’t have to, and online video chats. Many of these attempts are still in experimental stages, but the push to improve current tools continues.
But the problem seems to be with accessing health records. Yet, this is definitely the direction that doctor-patient communication is headed. People want access to their health information and the power to understand and maintain their health.
Enter TheVisualMD.com, a site that shows virtual images and videos of how disease progression and prevention happen. From infant development, to how clogged arteries can lead to a heart attack; or through The Nine Visual Rules of Wellness, the site’s videos feed our desire to understand these matters visually, down to the smallest detail of a pulse.
Want to see your body at work? The videos on TheVisualMD.com, which seem like mini health documentaries, do exactly that.
