Medical education is not just for medical students and medical professionals. Patients are often eager to understand the details of operations they will undergo, and this PaleBlue’s VR approach is a huge leap forward in improving patient education. Instead of showing patients pictures and drawing diagrams, physicians can virtually immerse the patients in an actual surgery (as an example) from the point of view of the surgeons.
Educating Medical Professionals
PaleBlue’s virtual reality (VR) technology is already transforming the medical landscape. From professional’s education (like physicians, nurses, and support personnel) to clinical applications, virtual reality has started to make changes in healthcare community. The possibilities for using virtual reality in healthcare are endless. Is there a situation in your department where virtual reality could be useful?
Therapy using Virtual Reality
PaleBlue has proven that therapy (all types including occupational and physical therapy), benefits greatly from virtual reality. In a traditional therapy session, there may not be enough repetitions of a limb movement to gain motor improvement efficiently. Virtual reality allows for more repetitions making for a quicker development of motor skills. PaleBlue has seen these games take patients’ minds off of the fact that they’re completing repetitions of the same movement.
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.Contact Us to Learn More
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, augmented reality might be the answer for patient education.
Nurses can assist patients better
PaleBlue is using AR technology to make both nurses’ and patients’ lives easier. Users of PaleBlue technology allows nurses and doctors see through patients’ bodies. Technology has been used on more than 10 million patients. Such technologies already assist healthcare professionals.
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 Healthcare
Augmented Reality specifically is really beginning to make its mark in the healthcare community. We are early adopters within healthcare and we are reaping the rewards of implementing AR across many areas within the medical community. 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.
