VR Medical Training

Crosswater renews its dedication to VR for medical training this week at UB.
Crosswater’s Immersive VR/360 producers are back at the University at Buffalo’s Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences in the Behling Simulation Center to capture an Emergency Code Scenario. In the future, simulations like these can provide students with the chance to experience what challenges they’ll face before they even have to step foot in the ER, or any other hospital setting where a code may occur.
Curious? Ask us questions about our work with UB and the Jacobs School of Medicine, and the benefits that immersive media is bringing to the next generation of physicians’ education.
Get a taste of our VR/360 experiences by taking this Crosswater produced virtual tour of the beautiful Jacobs School of Medicine.

VR for Pain Management

The introduction of VR has been the technological shakeup that the media industry needed to recognize its full potential to have a positive impact on the world.

Immersive VR/360 media is commonly used to reduce pain and discomfort during medical procedures, resulting in a fewer need for opioid pain killers and creating fewer dependences to the drug that kills so many every year.

VR Training US Army

The U.S. Army is using immersive VR/360 media for training purposes.

They have been creating realistic 3D simulations of various scenarios to introduce soldiers to accurate combat experiences. These first iterations of VR training are expected to “enable units to enter live training at a much higher level of proficiency,” according to Maj. Gen. Maria Gervais, deputy commanding general of the U.S. Army Combined Arms Center-Training.

VR Training is becoming widely accepted and practiced as a legitimate form of job training for nearly any profession in almost every industry.
