Mixed Reality for Active Learning

VR screen with dummyThe frontiers of simulation rest on merging augmented and virtual reality to create a mixed synthetic environment that can merge real-world scenarios with models of medically relevant situations. Our effort in this domain has lead to a platform that simplifies the creation of Interactive Mixed Reality (IMR) scenarios for medical education. Our software facilitates easy creation of mixed reality content by professionals who may not have advanced computer programming skills. Recent content developed with this technology includes a software for creating awareness about sepsis and introducing surgical robotics to third and fourth year medical students.
