Virtual reality in healthcare settings

The cooperation in the usage of Virtual Reality can be defined in two categories. One category is developing VR applications with the aim of better design of the health-friendly environment. Another category is for the education of caregivers. More information for each category presented below.

VR for design

To advance health-friendly design, VR's value extends across various aspects, as highlighted in the subsequent discussion as potential collaboration goals.

A) Immersive Visualization

Architects and stakeholders can experience a virtual walkthrough of healthcare spaces, allowing for a better understanding of the design and spatial relationships.

B) Design Validation

VR allows architects to assess the functionality and efficiency of healthcare layouts, helping to identify potential issues before construction begins.

C) Healthcare professional Feedback

Healthcare professionals can provide input on the design by virtually experiencing the space, leading to improvements that cater to the needs of end-users, such as patients and staff.

D) Stakeholder Collaboration

VR facilitates collaboration among architects, healthcare providers, and administrators, promoting better communication and understanding of design choices.

VR For Caregiver Training

VR creates simulation environments in which caregivers can experience how to better interact with patients in various parts of healthcare settings. Caregivers can become familiar with issues that may arise for patients in the healthcare environment to minimize them. Additionally, they gain tangible insights into the optimal utilization of the healthcare environment to enhance the well-being of patients.
