As we all know, technology is constantly advancing. Fortunately, the medical world often reaps the benefits of this, as seen through a recent collaboration between GigXR, The University of Cambridge and Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH) which has introduced the use of mixed reality technology to assist with the training of medical students. The collaboration is a breakthrough in enhancing medical training, by using holograms of patients to replicate real life scenarios in real time.
It is hoped that this technology will be available around the world, which will hopefully create a global standard of medical training.
Simulating real-world, real-time medical care requires interactive, responsive patients, medical tools and evolving scenarios that conventional methods, such as manikins, task trainers and standardised patients, and even virtual and augmented realities, cannot accurately recreate
