(ZDNet) AR and VR have already begun making inroads into surgical suites, medical training, doctor’s offices, and home care situations. There’s a good chance you’ve already encountered them in some form. Three uses are:
–VRHealth: Boston-based VRHealth makes immersive VR games, movies, and exercise scenarios for use in clinical settings and at home.
–AccuVein: An early pioneer of AR medicine, AccuVein makes a device that scans a patient’s skin and locates veins, allowing for easier (and less painful) placement of needles.
–Augmedics: Israel-based Augmedics created a surgical technology that overlays spinal information on the spine of a patient via a headset.
