Immersive technologies such as Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) are already used for a 3D medical experience. In a medical simulation, patients are allowed to behave how they would in the real world, but at the same time be in a healthcare environment centered around them, through a headset, head and body sensors.

However, both technologies used simulation in healthcare couldn’t be more different. VR relies on using computer technology to create a simulated environment, while AR is an enhanced version of reality with the technology adding additional elements or images and there are creations with both. The Healthcare industry is open to new applications that support the virtual reality medical training as the end goal is to deliver better health services and improve the health outcomes of patients, performance of caregivers, and everyone in between.

In recent years, this sector has recognized the incredible benefits brought by virtual reality in medical education to physicians, nurses, support staff, patients, and their families. Just like the other previously mentioned industries, Healthcare has followed suit and is continuously implementing AR and VR technologies into daily operations throughout hospitals, clinics and even patient homes.

PaleBlue comes to help VR medical training and even telemedicine through its 3D medical and AR healthcare systems.

AR Healthcare

Augmented reality differs from its most known "relative", virtual reality (VR) since the latter creates a 3D world completely detaching the user from reality. There are two respects in which AR is unique: users do not lose touch with reality and it puts information into eyesight as fast as possible. These distinctive features enable AR to become a driving force in the future of medicine and telehealth.

Patients can describe their symptoms

Patients often struggle when they have to describe their symptoms to their doctors accurately. In other cases, people often find themselves overreacting a medical situation or on the contrary, belittle the problem. In ophthalmology, for example, augmented reality might be the answer for patient education.

Pharma companies can provide more innovative drug information

Have you ever been curious about how a drug works in your body? Even if you got interested in discovering how the distant world of pills and medicaments work, I bet you lost all your enthusiasm after you read the boring and undecipherable drug description. Now, augmented reality is here to change it.

Augmented Reality for Simulation in Healthcare

Augmented Reality specifically is really beginning to make its mark in regards to virtual reality medical training. We are early adopters within healthcare and we are reaping the rewards of implementing AR across many areas within the medical community and for telemedicine services. The role of augmented reality in healthcare is forecast to keep increasing, so we’ve outlined and built a few ways that AR benefits patients, healthcare professionals, and even communities.
