Virtual Reality Healthcare Simulations

Project description

Despite the rapid development of Extended Reality industry (XR), there is a lack of high quality, certified training and simulations for healthcare professionals. The VRCare project responds to these needs by co-creating the first healthcare XR ecosystem across Europe which employs a holistic approach to XR healthcare simulations by combining: strong technical knowledge, service design, AI and machine learning, hand-tracking, natural language processing, pedagogical design, research and certification. The VRCare aims to improve the overall healthcare performance and make a positive impact on patients’ lives by reducing the number of mistakes professionals make.
