#R2BC Tuesday’s #GoodNews – FAST friends in a Virtual World

Still some amazing stuff going on but A LOT easier to pick a favourite today. We see many great medical stories in the pages of Silicon Nomad, and the amazing progress being made to help make people’s lives better, longer, and easier even after tragic illnesses or injuries. With talk about Oculus Rift and the growing interest in Virtual and Augmented Reality the news that the technology is actively helping recovering stroke patients is great news.

As a quick reminder of how to spot a stroke as time is an important factor in reducing the damage done:

  1. Facial Weakness: Can the person smile? Has their face fallen on one side?
  2. Arm Weakness: Can the person raise both and keep them there?
  3. Speech Problems: Can the person speak clearly and understand what you say? Is their speech slurred?
  4. Time: If you see any one of these three signs, it’s TIME to call the emergency services
    1. Something to keep in your helping humanity arsenal 😀
      Enjoy the Good News
