Development of “VR hands on training” with hand tracking in live-action medical VR!
Now possible to train in VR by superimposing one’s own hands on the techniques of surgeons
TOKYO, Nov. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Jolly Good Inc. (Chuo-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Kensuke Joji; “Jolly Good”) has developed the “VR hands on training” function as a new feature of the “OPECloud VR hands on training system”.
This is a VR clinical training platform developed and provided by Jolly Good, where hand tracking sensors are used to superimpose the VR user’s hands onto realistic live-action medical procedures in VR. Hands on learning will empower practical training exercises in addition to live-action medical VR.
■VR, which enables active learning, supplements clinical education where training opportunities have been drastically reduced due to the pandemic.
OPECloud VR “VR Hands on training” allows users to experience the sense of realism and patient interaction that should be learned in a clinical training, which has been lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With VR, users can become a surgeon and actually move their own hands and body to get a sense of the experience.
Such perceptual movement cannot be sufficiently nurtured in a passive learning environment such as in a classroom. While active learning such as clinical practice is difficult to perform, using VR and actually moving one’s own hands and body, users can learn not only the techniques, but also the movements, through hands on learning.
