The COPD Project is made in collaboration with MedTech Innovation Consortium and several clinical partners ranging from hospitals to municipal departments. In order to ensure a higher quality of treatment, we developed an authentic Virtual Reality experience to supplement the teaching material available to healthcare professionals. Simulation training has proven to be very effective especially in teaching complex and nuanced situations.
The healthcare professional is put in an authentic Virtual Reality environment simulating a citizen’s private home. Here the healthcare professional is asked to assess the citizen’s condition based on his symptoms, and try to relieve him of any discomforts related to COPD. The project is a work in progress, and we’re engaging in a continuous dialogue with our partners in order for us to create the best learning tool possible.
