A Game-changer in the Medical Industry
Virtual Reality has a far greater potential than entertainment purposes only, with infinite possible applications in such industries like real estate, digital marketing and many other. Right now, VR is starting to change the medical industry and, without doubt, in the not so distant future, medical simulations will move into virtual reality, as ordinary physical simulations are too limiting and lack authenticity.
Virtual simulations are increasingly being viewed as a valuable tool in education and training.
We are proud to present our demo of OperatioMed VR, an application that may be used in order to prepare young doctors and paramedics for typical stressful situations in their day-to-day work. The dynamic environment, well equipped operating room and the spectrum of realistic sounds make the simulation a fully immersive and authentic experience.
The app is created for the purposes of medical training and helps medical students or medical professionals: discover human anatomy, inspect and touch given parts of the human body, deal with various medical cases and practice lifesaving procedures.
The application will offer its users a unique chance to simulate and experience a surgery first in virtual reality, before moving on to performing it in the real world. The app involves a touch-sensitive medical mannequin with realistic size, weight and handling characteristics.
More than textbook pictures and static models
OperatioMed VR also offers the choice to display multiple layers of the mannequin, which enables a thorough study of a given part of the human body like heart or ribs. What is more, it is possible to move various parts of the body such as joints or muscles, and observe the effects. The application allows the user to display a given organ in the center of the room, magnify the organ and examine it up close, even from the inside. Last but not least, in OperatioMed VR, users make decisions relying solely on their medical knowledge, as the app offers unique opportunities to explore and interact with the surrounding environment, find necessary equipment and use it to try to help the patient.
…The app is designed for the purposes of medical training and helps medical students or medical professionals: learn human anatomy, observe and touch given parts of the human body, solve various medical cases and practice lifesaving procedures.
Less risk – more confidence
With the use of simulators, medical students and trainees become familiar with a given situation or process, which eventually makes them feel more relaxed and confident. Participation in such training sessions might be really beneficial to their comprehension of medical knowledge, as applications like OperatioMed VR foster habit learning and shape long-term memory of medical procedures. That being said, medical simulations help to significantly lower the risk of surgical mistakes.
Applications tailored to specific needs of medical professionals
It seems like there are no boundaries to what extent VR technology can be used in the medical sector. Medical universities, hospitals or clinics can now order tailor-made software, designed exclusively to help them simulate and practice a specific medical operation.
VR application design studios such as MojoApps can create specific virtual environments and scenarios ranging from ordinary medical treatment in a clinic, or emergency medical service in a speeding ambulance, to complex surgeries in an emergency room.
The introduction of Virtual Reality in the medical industry is a game-changer and it seems like the immediate future holds great technological advancements, innovations far surpassing our imagination. Some of them are already here.
