College of Medicine developing virtual reality training simulation

The Ohio State College of Medicine made a VR simulation to train medical students (and professionals) in a mass-casualty events context. The program has been grant by Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality for more than 1,8 millions dollars. The new VR simulation — led by Danforth and his co-principal investigator Nicholas Kman, an emergency medicine physician at the medical center — will show trainees ranging from medical students to EMTs a subway bombing scene…

Augmented reality : A new frontier in hospital design

For hospitals, like for many other building, augmented reality is a great help to easy the conception step with true users. Architects use it to show how the building will be and to collect users’ opinion. In this article authors gives many illustration of AR and VR uses in this view. Even the most experienced clinical planners, people who have dedicated 30+ years to the design of healthcare facilities, cannot provide all the answers. Only…

Virtual Reality Check: Statistical Power, Reported Results, and the Validity of Research on the Psychology of Virtual Reality and Immersive Environments

In this article authors perform a meta-analyse over more than a thousand statistical tests related to uses of VR in psychology. The study is mainly focused on statistical consistency and explore main errors seen in scientific papers. They also talk about “usual” bias in selected samples. The conclusions may seem harsh to you but it give good ways for future research 🙂 Virtual reality (VR) is a popular subject of scientific study across a variety…

Augmented reality prototype software for drug molecules developed

Is it efficient to design drugs and to manipulate molecules “with hands”? A team from company Sygnature have done many tests and they have found this method useful for collaborative work. They used Hololens and 3D rendering software to help biochemists to see shapes and structures interactions. Company now works to integrates all functionalities in a easy-to-use software. “It’s good for immersing yourself in a completely different world, but you’re there by yourself,’ says Dr…
