Webinar: Augmented Reality in Medicine, Health and Wellness

The fields of medicine, healthcare and wellness have long embraced the use of new technology to improve patient outcomes and quality of life. The introduction of Augmented Reality-assisted systems is going hand in hand with the increase in real time data we are able to capture and analyze about the body. In this Webinar a framework for how Augmented Reality (AR) is used for visualization of medical and health data, and the measurable benefits of having the data in context, are introduced. Examples illustrate the different approaches available today as well as what to expect in the future. We will present some of the results of preliminary studies into AR-assisted medical procedures and offer insights into where the technology introduction is most likely to encounter obstacles as well as support from different stakeholders in the health and wellness ecosystem. Healthcare practitioners, medical technologists and managers of health facilities will be able to apply what they learn in this Webinar to their own processes and address challenges they face when bringing together technical information and the patient which that data concerns. You will learn: • What processes are considered the most suitable for AR-assisted systems? • What metrics are being used to evaluate the impact of AR in medicine, healthcare and wellness? • How is AR introduced into healthcare pilot projects? • What are obstacles to introducing AR in medicine, healthcare and wellness?

Augmented REality Sandtable (ARES)

The Augmented REality Sandtable (ARES) proof-of-concept is a traditional sandtable, filled with play sand, augmented with a commerical-off-the-shelf projector, LCD monitor, laptop, and Microsoft Kinect. The Kinect senses user gestures, changes to the sand “terrain,” and potentially, verbal commands as forms of user interaction. ARES projects moving military units, terrain features, and other data onto the sand. Payoff: Improved battlespace visualization. Decreased time to author 3D terrains and scenarios. Increased student engagement / retention levels. Joint / Coalition Wargaming and Mission Planning through networked ARES tables.

Virtual Reality Training for Military and Law Enforcement Immersive Training Simulation Applications

http://www.VTTII.com - VIRTSIM is a motion-capture immersive virtual reality simulation system that allows up to 13 people to train together virtually. The virtual reality system allows trainees to perform law enforcement and military combat exercises and move tactically as they would during a live operation. Any location or tactical scenario can be simulated by the software with incredible realistic details. The 3D AAR then provides playback of all actions and shots from every angle, as well as from each participant's individual perspective for feedback and analysis. There is nothing like this on the market - visit http://www.VTTII.com for more info and details.
