How Cerec Was Able To Transport Their Product Within an AR Experience

CEREC has complicated products that require a thorough demonstration of use in order to get qualified prospects. They wanted to provide their trade show representatives an easier way to interact with prospects that didn’t require a long introduction, an effortless way to demo their product, a method to draw foot traffic to their booth and leave prospects with an unforgettable experience.


Effectomy Helps Patients, Medical Students and Professionals Alike to Understand Prescriptions Better

By placing a 3D model of a skeleton on any surface within their environment, users can select from a wide variety of medicines and watch as animations indicate what organs and/or body parts are affected from that particular medication. The driving force behind Effectomy is to help simplify and demystify the positive and negative effects that come from taking certain medications.


Frequently Asked Questions

Is AR or VR preferable for my project?

If your goal is to enhance real-world medical procedures or training by overlaying digital information onto the user’s physical environment, AR may be more suitable. On the other hand, if you aim to create completely immersive simulations or environments that transport users into virtual worlds, VR could be the better choice. If you’re feeling unsure, the Gravity Jack team can help assess factors such as the level of immersion needed, target audience, technical capabilities, and practical constraints to make an informed decision.

What are 5 examples of Augmented Reality in the medical industry?

  • Anatomical Visualization: Overlay detailed 3D models of human anatomy onto a patient’s body, aiding in medical education, surgical planning, and patient consultation.
  • Vein Visualization: Assist medical professionals in locating veins for blood draws, IV placements, and other procedures by overlaying a map of veins onto the patient’s skin, making them more visible and accessible.
  • Surgical Navigation: Real-time guidance and navigation during surgical procedures by overlaying virtual images onto the surgical field. Surgeons can see critical structures, such as blood vessels or tumors, superimposed on the patient’s anatomy, improving accuracy and reducing the risk of complications.
  • Medical Training Simulations: AR simulations can recreate realistic medical scenarios for training purposes. Medical students and professionals can practice diagnosing conditions, performing procedures, or responding to emergencies in a controlled virtual environment, enhancing their skills and confidence without risking patient safety.
  • Patient Education and Rehabilitation: Educate patients about their medical conditions, treatment options, and rehabilitation exercises. Patients can interact with virtual models of their own anatomy or medical devices, gaining a better understanding of their health and improving adherence to treatment plans.

What are 5 examples of Virtual Reality in the medical industry?

  • Surgical Simulation: Enable surgeons to practice and refine their surgical techniques in a virtual environment. Simulations can replicate various surgical procedures with realistic haptic feedback, allowing surgeons to improve their skills, reduce operating room time, and minimize risks to patients.
  • Pain Management and Therapy: Immersive VR environments can help patients manage pain, reduce anxiety, and improve overall well-being by transporting them to relaxing or engaging virtual worlds.
  • Phobia Treatment: Patients can confront their fears in a controlled virtual environment, gradually desensitizing themselves to triggers and learning coping mechanisms. VR simulations can recreate scenarios such as flying, heights, or social situations, allowing therapists to customize treatment for individual patients.
  • Medical Education and Training: Virtual simulations can replicate complex medical scenarios, anatomy lessons, or patient interactions, providing hands-on training in a safe and cost-effective manner. VR also enables collaborative learning and remote access to educational resources.
  • Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy: Interactive VR exercises and games encourage movement, balance, and coordination, making therapy sessions more engaging and motivating. Virtual environments can simulate real-life activities and challenges, allowing patients to practice skills and track their progress over time.

Do I need an AR/VR headset for medical training?

For certain types of training, such as immersive simulations or virtual reality (VR) experiences, a headset may be necessary to fully engage participants and provide a realistic learning environment. VR headsets can offer immersive experiences where trainees can interact with virtual patients, perform procedures, or navigate complex medical scenarios.

However, for other types of training, such as augmented reality (AR) applications that overlay digital information onto the real world, a headset may not always be required. AR can be accessed through various devices like smartphones, tablets, or AR glasses, depending on the specific application and its intended use case.

Can you recreate any type of medical procedure in AR or VR?
