Amplified Robot – Augmented Patient/Consumer Education
Augmented reality makes it much easier to promote a healthy lifestyle and educate patients on a variety of topics that are related to their health and wellbeing. AR helps medical professionals better explain how certain treatments or surgeries will be carried out and educate on what happens and how. London-based Amplified Robot develops augmented reality and mixed reality solutions for many industries, including healthcare. Their solution New Drug showcases how healthcare companies and providers can educate patients and other consumers about the action formulas of drugs and visualize them in a memorable way.
Medcognition – Professional Med Training
Medical professionals that are just beginning their careers in healthcare often face the challenges of real-world practice. AR gives a hand to them, effectively employing immersive training techniques that involve numerous work-life scenarios. Texas-based Medcognition develops augmented reality solutions for paramedics. Their signature product, PerSim, is a patient simulation platform which creates realistic holographic patients undergoing certain health emergencies, including seizures, abdominal traumas, respiratory distress, etc. The solution allows to create and customize such scenarios to simulate various conditions.
Proximie – Interactive Studies For Med Students
Inspiring young learners to learn faster and more, augmented reality offers an unparalleled chance for individuals to quickly build up their practical experience. It includes giving medical professionals the tools to interact with other experts in AR, receive advice and make annotations. Proximie and its AR-powered training solutions have been appraised by Yale University as a great hands-on instrument to train the university’s med students. Essentially this AR solution allows engaging remote experts (more experienced surgeons) into practice or real surgeries. It allows to make annotations in an augmented environment and to overlay remote professionals’ hands onto an existing surgery field to provide more specific and interactive guidance.
Virti – Remote Learning Environment
Interactive immersive learning is a more effective method of learning than traditional approaches. Tech and healthcare companies are constantly developing newer and better learning solutions. This includes AR-centered learning scenarios for remote medical professionals to provide guidance in various health emergency scenarios, for example when providing first medical help to a traumatized individual. Virti offers a complex yet powerful and fully-immersive AR learning platform for cardiology, emergency medicine, and more. Their solution is based around an immersive remote simulation platform where remote medical experts re-create various healthcare emergencies and guide learners step by step in terms of what should be done when a person is in a critical state. Augmented reality makes this process not only interactive but also more visually-effective and memorable.
