AR and VR in healthcare use cases include training surgeons, providing “bucket list” experiences for hospice patients and managing pain relief.
Professor Shafi Ahmed, a surgeon who also supports scale-up digital healthcare companies around the world, believes this reality-bending innovations – alongside other tech like artificial intelligence (AI) – have made this the “most exciting time to be working in medicine”. Ahmed continued, “I’ve been in medicine for 25 years and never been happier because we finally see the convergence of technology – whether it’s AI, blockchain, wearables or AR and VR – all coming together at the same time.”
