In this article professor Olivier Oullier explains how augmented reality will change the world of healthcare, when solutions will be more easy to use ans less expensive. In healthcare as in any other sector, having to speak, press buttons or make movements in the air prevent smart glasses from reaching mass adoption. Silent and motionless communication between the brain and augmented reality devices and content thanks to mental commands is the key feature that will…"Augmented reality can save lives and we’re veering towards mass adoption"
What if there was a cost effective, scalable and structured solution to help understand those with acquired brain injuries? What if clinicians, occupational therapists and speech therapists could eliminate basic flash cards and guess work, and use augmented reality to help their patients communicate? In his presentation from the 2018 eHealth Queensland Expo in Brisbane, David Paré explains the possibilities of augmented reality to transform brain trauma care. Watch as David tells the story of…"Andrew’s Brain: An augmented reality solution to brain trauma communication"
Strokes are not always fatal but victims have to endure hard rehabilitation to recover forgotten abilities. Regan David Petrie, Victoria University masters of design and innovation student, created a AR game (NZ Fauna AR) to help patients for stroke rehabilitation. The classical game elements like rewards and progressive increasing of difficulty are completed by augmented reality to engage even more users. As mentioned in article, preliminary results of a little cohort of stroke victims are…"Augmented reality game helps stroke victims recover faster"
Leica Microsystems presents a new microscope dedicated to neurosurgery. This device gives all visual information in a single field of you in front of surgeon. With the help of augmented reality, he can view fluorescence images directly on the patient and go to different pictures without interruption. Cutting edge view of ARveo digital augmented reality microscope marks a new generation of integrated rich information instruments Source: News Details: Leica Microsystems"ARveo microscope from Leica Microsystems : a single field of view with all data"
In this article, you will discover how Dr. Joshua Bederson and his team in Mount Sinai Hospital (NYC) use immersive technologies to prepare ans operate complex brain surgeries. The use of “Surgical Theater” software gives surgeons a 360° vision of the patient and is linked to a Occulus VR helmet to see “inside” the brain. It’s a way to limit the workload for the surgeon. The new technology includes a program called Surgical Theater, which…"How augmented reality gives one doctor surgical ‘superpowers’"
With this very impressive installation, Pfizer R&D team explores the complexity of molecular actions in brain (and in 3D!) At Pfizer’s Research & Development hub in Cambridge, Mass., chemists, neuroscientists and other researchers use 3D VisBox technology to visualize and virtually explore the human body at the molecular level.

Virtual reality systems are perfect tools to help people in visualization of complex pictures, especially from high-performance microscopes (like light-sheet microscope). This new visualization ability has huge impacts on neural research. Dr. Gilles Reymond, Staff Engineer at the Wyss Center outlines the possibilities: “In the future, this could prove a very useful tool to gain a new 3D perspective on the complex mechanical and biological interactions between the human brain and new types of MRI…"New Virtual Reality Technology Allows Scientists to ‘Walk Through’ Brains"
