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 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.

VR/360 Dementia Care

Here’s a shot of our Canadian partners, Primacare Living Solutions, trying out the Crosswater-produced VR/360 Dementia care content.

This, coupled with implementing UK-based Dementia Care Matters’ ‘Butterfly Model’ in their facilities, solidifies their dedication to improving the quality of life for their Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients.

Crosswater will be there with them every step of the way on this project, dubbed ‘The Albert Project’, to create all Immersive VR/360 environments and soundscapes to elicit the most impactful and meaningful results.

Buffalo Seminary VR/360

Buffalo Seminary hosts an open house tonight to introduce potential students to a “tradition of forward thinking” education.

They will also be unveiling their new VR/360 student marketing campaign entitled, “Day In the Life,” produced by Crosswater.

The project took a year in the making, capturing all the special events and experiences that are part of the daily life at the private all-girls school.

Buffalo Seminary is no stranger to forward thinking. In addition to the immersive marketing video, they have partnered with Crosswater on the development of a VR/AI language learning experience for their students.

Nancy Fernandez, Crosswater’s Director of Immersive Education, said “We need more women in the tech sector for representational purposes, cutting out some unintended bias and breaking the age old stereotype that tech is a man’s job. It’s (the VR/AI lab) a pipeline from high school to high tech.”

VR Vaccinations for Kids

For a lot of kids, getting pricked by a needle during their vaccinations is a stressful and painful experience. VR can help remove a lot of the pain and fear that they experience at the doctor’s office.

Watch this short video to see how pediatricians in Brazil have begun using VR to immerse kids into a fantasy world, distracting them from the vaccines as they are administered.

Music Therapy

Music and a healthy mind go hand-in-hand!

“Research has con­firmed that music has both psy­chological and physiological effects,” according to UC Berkeley’s article about music’s therapeutic value. Crosswater’s co-founder and composer, John Michael Adamo, knows this well, and has been composing music designed to comfort patients suffering from Dementia and Depression for an ongoing project with our Canadian healthcare partners, Primacare Living Solutions.

Contact Crosswater at (716) 884-8486, crosswater@crosswater.net, Facebook Messenger, or LinkedIn to learn how the power of music can have profound impacts, and how John may be able to help create the perfect soundscape to fit your specific needs.

VR Therapy

Did you know that 19 million US adults struggle with phobias every day of their lives?
Therapists have started using VR/360 technology to expose these people to their greatest fears, teaching them that the initial panic will pass and that they are strong enough to handle the physical reactions that result from irrational fear.
VR therapy is in the preliminary stages of research to find conclusive scientific evidence that the method is an effective way to deal with irrational phobias. However, personal anecdotes from subjects of the therapy method have been overwhelmingly positive thus far.
Take a look at this video by the Associated Press, which explains some examples of how this method has helped people suffering from phobias.
