To save the patients’ life, first, Dr. Loupe increase the reliability of the diagnosis in an emergency through iris recognition and image analysis. Second, it integrates diverse tools used in emergency procedures and reduces the possibility of errors.

When transferring the patient to the hospital, the roles of the additionally designed cradle are as follows: First, it functions as a chart that allows the medical staffs to view and confirm patient's record. Second, further diagnosis can be made when needed so that the medical staffs can check the changes in the patient's condition. Third, the device can be charged through the cradle.
