Blind Woman Enjoys 3D Printed Ultrasound of Her Baby

Since I’ve been focusing on patient stories this week, I thought that I’d share this viral video that I’m sure many of you have seen. If you haven’t seen it, this is the video of a lady who is blind as she gets to touch and feel a 3D printed ultrasound of the shape of her baby. It’s a pretty amazing video and the ladies reaction to it is quite extraordinary.

I love this video because he provided me a new understanding of the challenges people with disabilities can have in their patient experience. However, as a tech junkie, I also totally love how all these technologies could come together in such a tremendously beautiful way. This is why I’m so optimistic about the next 10 years of healthcare. We’re just getting started when it comes to technology improving healthcare.
