Mount Sinai HELPS Center Study Finds Virtual Reality ACLS Simulation Training Effective for Assessing ACLS Competency

In this study conducted at Mount Sinai HELPS Center, authors compare VR and mannequin-based simulations for ACLS (Advanced Cardiopulmonary Life Support) training. They show that users measured skills in VR is closely correlated with those in classical method (with the mannequin). Even if VR can’t replace the old method, it will be very efficient to be used for individualized training, more often and for a lower cost. The study found that VR simulation was predictive…

How virtual reality can change the way we see our molecular world

“Nano Simbox” is a application to discover molecular and atomic scale of matter. It’s design to be immersive, fully interactive and collaborative. As Dr. David Glowacki said, this application show the motion of each particles and allow you to “feel” hidden electrical interactions, or more precisely to explore many different configurations of atoms with your hands. It’s very efficient for education but also for researchers to find new components. Having a sense of the invisible…

Mixed Reality in Healthcare by The Medical Futurist

What if medical students could project bear-sized holographic brains in their dorm rooms when studying for an anatomy exam? What if surgeons could use those holograms to prepare for complex surgeries or even support the operations themselves? HoloLens appears to be the platform for the medical application of mixed reality, so I was curious how […] Source: Mixed Reality in Healthcare – The HoloLens Review – The Medical Futurist
