Hmm. If a 1ms latency is what's needed, the speed of light through the network limits the separation of the patient and surgeon to about 100 miles or so.
If a truck filled with tapes beats the bandwidth of the fastest network, I guess an ambulance with the patient in it is the metric that needs to be to beaten here.
Based on personal experience, you can forget technological aids. Sorry. It's all about getting the right environment and the right carers.
One of my top ten 'clever solutions' to a problem was used (perhaps devised?) by a care home near me. They had a long driveway and trouble with residents who had a nice patio area to use wandering off and getting lost. So the home got a bus shelter built near the bottom of the drive. No buses, just an authentic shelter. Residents would get lost, wander around a bit, spot the bus shelter and go and sit down and quite happily wait ages (it was the UK) for the bus. CCTV would spot them and and an orderly would walk down and help them back again.
I suspect it's more about a mechanism for stopping this sort of news:
, i.e. the repeated 'news' stories that UK members of parliament are pretty heavy consumers of porn themselves.
A number of the BBC stories amount to publicity-seeking parents violating the privacy of their non-censenting children by allowing them to be named as subjects in, particularly health-related, stories.
Note for parents: Children are not your property. Even if you think that publishing self-serving stories about them in the media or on the web is your prerogative they will eventually grow up and decide that you had no f***ing business so to do.
As this is a European company it is subject to European data protection and privacy legislation. Many countries have given their enforcement agencies quite significant enforcement powers to punish abuse and there is pressure for the penalties to be increased to the point that non-compliance is not going to be viable business model:
I don't even see why there are so many other posts about Kermit, laplink, file transfers, PCMCIA, etc etc. Worst case is that the hard drive has a proprietary connector and you have to solder an adapter on.
Because rule #1 when trying to get data off twenty-year-old hardware is "If it's working, mess with it as little as possible."
