Indianapolis tech firm to introduce 'telepresence' to veterinary sector

Hodei Technology has formed a new division to take its telepresence communications and wearable technologies to the veterinary market.

Hodei has developed a proprietary and patented use for the Google Glass communication device for medical applications. The new unit – Aliquis Telepresence – will market the technology in the veterinary space to provide "live, two-way, on-demand connectivity" that can link remote specialists with the front end of veterinary care and pet owners.

The firm believes this opens up a new way to advance veterinary medicine by "fundamentally changing the status quo in the delivery of patient care, the training of veterinarians and veterinary staff, and introducing and utilizing technology throughout the global veterinary market".

Brian Huber, president of Aliquis, said: "Telepresence provides us with an opportunity to revolutionize veterinary care by bringing the expertise of a specialist directly to the level it's needed – at the clinic or hospital.

"Using telepresence engages the general practitioner, the specialist and the pet parent in the therapeutic pathway – ensuring earlier intervention, better treatment options and better clinical results."

The video below demonstrates how the telepresence technology can be used in a veterinary practice setting.
