GigXR, a provider of holographic healthcare training, announced the release of a new mixed reality application called HoloScenarios. The first module, created in partnership with the University of Cambridge and Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) NHS Foundation Trust, will provide holographic scenarios for common respiratory conditions and emergencies.
HoloScenarios simulates the entire patient care journey from assessment and diagnosis to appropriate intervention and escalation of care. Instructors can place holographic patients and medical equipment into any training environment for users to see both their real-world physical space and the digital overlay of the holograms at same time, whether in a simulation lab, classroom or at-home study or office space for distributed learning. This provides safe-to-fail immersive learning that can be accessed, delivered and shared with learners anywhere in the world.
“Mixed reality is increasingly recognized as a useful method of simulator training. As institutions scale procurement, the demand for platforms that offer utility and ease of mixed reality learning management is rapidly expanding,” said Arun Gupta, Director of Postgraduate Education, Cambridge University Health Partnership. “GigXR has already enabled instructors to better prepare learners with medically accurate simulation for observation and assessment. With HoloScenarios, we’re helping to evolve education from a mentorship-based model to one where students around the world can have equal access to top-flight expertise for mastering invention-based clinical skills.”
