Here's How AR & VR Is Trending

Healthcare experts believe most future surgical training protocols will depend exclusively on VR-based technology that will enable trainees to hone their skills on incredibly realistic virtual patients. The training is superior to earlier methods, on a corpse, in which it can expose surgeons to a wider anatomical variety.

FREMONT, CA: Regardless of being in their early years, Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) are already starting to transform healthcare. A study estimates that there will be over 30 million users of these technologies within the next three years. They are time-savers for healthcare professionals and lifesavers for patients, as AR and VR will be employed not only in areas such as stroke and visual rehabilitation, but also in the exercise, stress management, and speech therapy.

Here are the top four AR/VR trends:

1.     More Informative Healthcare

In the future, it is probable that when patients walk into a medical facility, they will put on a pair of AR glasses, giving them access to informational snippets, diagrams, and graphs as they are consulting with healthcare professionals. Therefore, the appointment will be a more informative and comprehensive experience.

2.     Surgical Training

Healthcare experts believe most future surgical training protocols will depend exclusively on VR-based technology that will enable trainees to hone their skills on incredibly realistic virtual patients. The training is superior to earlier methods, on a corpse, in which it can expose surgeons to a wider anatomical variety.

3.     Transformed Physical Rehabilitation

Furthermore, virtual reality is competent in transforming physical rehabilitation, and AR is not far behind. For instance, the AR glasses of the future will be put on by physical rehabilitation patients while they are concurrently connected to electrodes. Patients can then see their heart rate, calorie burn, blood pressure, flex strength, and other crucial data, enabling them to make the most of their PT.

4.     More affluent Remote Healthcare

AR and VR technologies will be accessible to patients facing chronic health problems from the comfort of their own homes. The instance is predominantly convenient for those who are inert or unable to be transported effortlessly. The remote healthcare professional can connect to the home-based patient courtesy of such equipment, giving patients rich and informative walkthroughs and sessions without the physical presence. For instance, if a physician wants to show a patient how to self-manage a medicine, this can be done very accurately with VR-based walkthroughs.
