Medical Realities is an innovative group offering medical training products, specializing in virtual reality, augmented reality and serious games. By using consumer-level virtual reality devices such as the Oculus Rift, Medical Realities can reduce the cost of training, reach a wider audience & provide a completely safe learning environment for medical students.
We believe that over the past few years, the current market in medical simulation and training has come to a plateau. Despite promises, many medical simulators fail to live up to expectation. We believe that new technologies such as virtual and augmented reality offers something different. We want to offer a solution where we can deliver effective teaching and training to anyone, anywhere in the world.
Combining 360 video, 3D and interactive content, The Virtual Surgeon™ puts you inside the operating theatre overseeing an operation through the eyes of the consultant surgeon. The learning program was developed for head mounted displays such as the Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR.
