8. MeetUp AR/VR/MR: AR in Health Care
Zeit & Ort
Über die Veranstaltung
The health care business rightfully prides itself to be an industry that constantly invests in new technologies and courageously explores new ways to improve our well being. Always trying to balance expensive research for new treatments with the incentive to drive down health care costs.
AR/VR/MR-technologies are becoming more capable, immersive and mode affordable. These advancements open many new possibilities:
=> Research: Simulations and spatial visualizations can improve comprehension of complex or otherwise invisible relationships.
=> Training: Immersive technologies enable us to look inside the human body like never before. Students can learn more efficiently, and surgeons can rehearse and plan procedures to improve performance in high stakes scenarios.
=> Therapies: Virtual worlds can help patients with Phobias, PTSD and other psychological disorders, while Mixed Reality experiences incentivize physical exercise and track movement in rehabilitation scenarios.
=> Telemedicine: The availability and the relative low cost of AR/VR/MR solutions bring health care specialists closer to patients and operation theaters, bridging distances between all stakeholders.
These new possibilities and advancements still need to adhere to rigorous testing, certification, the scientific method and empirical research to be viable in the health care business.
As usual, we'll invite experts working with these technologies to talk about their work and we try provide as many hands-on experiences as possible for our participants.
*** We'll announce the speaker list soon ***
We'll do the event-moderation in English, while our experts will give their inputs in English and standard German.
