Virtual reality medical training simulations allow healthcare professionals and medical students to expand, practice and test their diagnostic, surgical, clinical and equipment operation skills without putting patients at risk.

Given the continual advancement of medical technology, healthcare providers require ongoing professional development that can fit with already busy work schedules.

Virtual reality training for healthcare professionals is economical, repeatable, scalable and most importantly hyper-realistic. Scenarios can replicate the unpredictability of real-life situations and medical emergencies without putting patients at risk or diminishing effectiveness with “act-out” scenarios.

Apart from the training aspect, VR medical training can enhance and reshape many areas of medical treatment.

  • Advancing Autism Therapy and other Therapies (fear of heights, pain, stroke recovery, and so on)
  • Reducing Chronic Pain
  • Relaxing Hospitalized Patients
  • Enhancing Physicians Care by simulating the experience and restrictions caused by certain chronic illnesses and old-age
  • Speed up recovery

Virtual and Augmented Reality can create the opportunity to explore and utilize a wide variety of treatment, training and collaboration methods for Healthcare professionals.
