Top 10 healthcare wearables to watch
Virtual reality technology is giving medical school students the opportunity to be more hands-on when it comes to complex training. The Samsung Gear VR is not an exclusive medical device, but its technology is being used in medical schools to enhance simulated training environments.
The virtual reality headset has content that allows students to explore human anatomy, create trauma room simulations, surgical training and observation, and other modules that allow students to develop quick decision-making and get real-time feedback. The Samsung virtual reality headset is being used at the Miami Children’s Hospital, the Penn State Health Simulation Center, the University of California Davis School of Medicine and the University of Chicago, along with other institutions.
