How is VR used in the medical field?

VR / AR technology becomes the part of professional training for students of medical schools and advanced training of practicing doctors.

Virtual reality makes it possible, without risking the patient’s life and fears of failure of expensive equipment, to carry out complex operations, hone technology, developing a treatment method.

Colorful, three-dimensional images of tissues, organs, bone, nervous and vascular systems in virtual reality are clearer. Moreover, and that is more important, we have more detailed presentation instead of a simple textbook drawing. It is possible to view the object under study from all sides, identify structural features, track relationships and distinguish abnormal manifestations from simple physiological characteristics of the organism.

3D model of computed tomography gives the surgeon “X-ray” vision, increasing the accuracy of his manipulations and reducing the time of surgical intervention in the patient’s body.

Augmented reality in the hands of anesthesiologists, in tandem with psychologists, allows the patient to endure operations more easily, forgetting about pain, and receive psychological relief, plunging into another reality with beautiful landscapes and music. Virtual reality has a positive therapeutic effect and promotes quick rehabilitation after surgery, trauma, and mental disorders.

Intravenous injection becomes the least traumatic for the patient, especially when we deal with children and the elderly. Equipment with VR / AR technology complements reality by illuminating the vascular system or projecting the circulatory system onto the skin surface at the manipulation site.

VR technologies are also an effective tool for early diagnosis of certain diseases, such as neurodegenerative ones. By immersing the patient in a virtual environment, sensors record the signals and track how quickly the patient returns to normal.

VR in the design of buildings for medical institutions

VR / AR technology solutions are much easier to implement and use in properly designed medical facilities.

Augmented reality for the design of buildings of medical institutions allows you to assess the functionality of the building at the design stage, to comply with the technological features of the placement of diagnostic laboratories and laboratories for radiation diagnostics. AR also allows you to get answers to the following questions: how rationally the area is used, for what bed capacity the premises are designed. You also can take into account the convenience of the location of wards, operating rooms, utility and technical rooms.
