Panel: XR in Health and how it’s already saving lives

Room AB

Miki Levy – The future of healthcare – lessons learned by VRHealth

VRHealth creates Medical & Wellness Applications using VR/AR technology. The VRHealth Platform collects and analyzes user interactions with virtual objects and by using Artificial Intelligence (AI) cloud computing algorithms we deliver an enhanced experience and real-time data analytics. Using Virtual Reality (VR), users can step into our Virtual Platform and choose from a wide range of immersive VR/AR medical and wellness applications and content, where every move is analyzed and quantified, providing performance insights through a digital experience, for use both in clinics and at home.
VRHealth products are FDA registered medical applications and the company has ISO certification for the Development, marketing and distribution of XR based medical devices (ISO: 13485).
The session will review a few recent examples of XR use cases in healthcare and provide insites from ongoing clinical studies

Ravid Segal – MSR Israel Center for Medical Simulation

MSR , the Israel Center for Medical Simulation is the largest ‎center in Israel, training and/or testing ‎‎20,000 healthcare ‎professionals annually.‎
MSR aims to better prepare these professionals by means of ‎simulation-based training in order to ‎reduce errors, test ‎competency and thus save lives. The VR and AR fields are ‎just now beginning to ‎enter healthcare education and ‎training. I will discuss the difference between what there is ‎and ‎what we need and the lessons learned so far; the need for ‎AI, VR and AR in medical training and ‎evaluation and the ‎advantages, disadvantages and the user aspect of adapting ‎these ‎technologies.

Rahav Boussi-Gross – Assaf Harofe Medical Center

The neurocognitive unit in the Sagol hyperbaric center, Assaf Harofe medical center, has taken the mission to explore new technologies and the benefits they bring to the world of brain function, training and assessment. VR/AR technologies has the potential of helping therapists to have better understanding of cognitive and brain function, to measure and assess these function in an interactive environment that is much closer to real-world functioning, together with engaging experience for patients. In the panel, I will present our current work with VR cognitive training tools and early findings, explore the potential and advantages of VR/AR in brain training and assessment fields, and the need of the clinical world for more such innovative technological tools, with patient-centered perception.

Shaul Gelman – RealView Imaging Ltd.

Optical Reality vs. Optical illusions – True Holographic AR for Medical Applications

A novel technology of true, multi-depth planes and “touchable” digital holography will be presented. The technology is developed by RealView Imaging Ltd. that is introducing the world’s first interference-based 3D holographic display and interaction systems initially for medical imaging applications. RealView’s proprietary technology projects hyper-realistic, dynamic 3D holographic images “floating in the air” registered precisely to 3D space. The projected 3D volumes appear in free space, allowing the user to literally touch and interact within the image while naturally focusing on the image and on the user’s hand simultaneously as well as projecting far and close objects in parallel in multiple depth planes, presenting a unique and proprietary breakthrough in digital holography and real-time 3D interaction capabilities. For more information please visit www.realviewimaging.com. An overview on the company, technology, capabilities and recent accomplishments will be presented.
