Facebook Twitter Reddit Linkedin Subscribe The Entire VR Industry in One Little Email The Daily Roundup is our comprehensive coverage of the VR industry wrapped up into one daily email, delivered directly to your inbox. Email Address The design team behind Bioflight VR has worked on television shows such as CSI and ER, and they’ve been able to translate their VFX visualization skills into a virtual reality medical education venture. Their original plans were to use virtual reality to help doctors utilize the volumetric information captured in MRIs, CAT scans, and ultrasounds to improve upon medical diagnosis from 2D slices of data, but they started to gain more traction by creating a number of different types of educational VR experiences. LISTEN TO THE VOICES OF VR PODCAST https://dts.podtrac.com/redirect.mp3/d1icj85yqthyoq.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Voices-of-VR-572-Rik-Shorten.mp3 Bioflight VR started creating time-lapse experiences showing the long-term impacts of sodium consumption and smoking in videos meant for doctors to show patients to inspire behavior modification, and they also created a number of interactive medical training scenarios that would allow medical students to experience intense emergency room scenarios that would allow them to be evaluated based upon their competency and performance. I had a chance to catch up with co-founder and chief creative officer Rik Shorten at the Silicon Valley Virtual Reality conference both in May 2016 as well as a follow-up and update in March of 2017. This interview tracks the evolution of Bioflight VR starting with ambitions to use VR for medical diagnosis, and then their pivot focusing more on medical training and patient behavioral modification and education the following year. There are a lot of opportunities for virtual reality to become a huge part of telemedicine and providing a platform to visualize data that you collect about your body, but virtual reality seems to be making its first strides into the medical field through patient and student education before the more advanced and higher-end applications of medical diagnosis and distributed telemedicine are adopted.

Medrobotics has developed a platform of flexible medical robots that enable surgeons to access, visualize, and perform two-handed surgery in hard-to-reach anatomical places through a single-site access. The core technology is a new generation of flexible robotic snakes with advanced vision systems that are able to navigate tortuous paths while providing accessory channels for a wide range of flexible surgical tools. The robots are self-supporting, which means they are able to support their own weight and move within any three-dimensional space without the need for any other structural support. The company was formerly known as Cardiorobotics and Innvoention Technologies.
