AR: The Future of the Medical Industry
The future of medical learning is undoubtedly in simulations and Augmented Reality, and Infuse Medical is helping lead the push to new grounds for AR usage within the medical industry for education, medical device sales and more. Because of the real-world consequences involved, medical industries truly face an up-hill battle when it comes to having an abundance of time and real world opportunities for learning and experimenting to keep up with the pace of all the medical advancements out there. For the most part, hands-on learning opportunities are extremely limited, both by the relative rarity of occurrences in some medical scenarios, and because of the rapid rate of new developments including the continual changes in how procedures should be performed. Too often, surgeons are faced with the task of implanting medical devices for the first time—during an actual surgery, but these limitations can now be widely offset with the advancement of AR technology which puts learners in a real-life environment using augmented simulations, giving medical professionals time to test, experiment and learn about advancements and medical devices long before a surgery takes place.
