Use of Wearable Technology in Remote Evaluation of Acute Stroke Patients: Feasibility and Reliability of a Google Glass-Based Device


Background: Telestroke is an efficient, cost-effective way to standardize care and improve access to immediate neurologic expertise for rural hospitals and other underserved areas. Hands-free wearable technology potentially allows for faster evaluations that fit easily within prehospital workflows and could improve prehospital triage of stroke patients to appropriate receiving stroke centers. The goal of this study is to assess the feasibility and inter-rater reliability of wearable eyeglass video technology in assessing stroke-related neurologic deficits in patients with suspected acute stroke.
