SEOUL, Aug. 4 (Korea Bizwire) — A local hospital in Seoul has introduced virtual reality (VR) technology to train nurses in an ‘untact’ (contactless) environment in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Asan Medical Center announced Monday that it has set up a VR training platform to enable trainees to study in virtual reality.
The VR platform comprises five personal and one team experiential chambers in which emergency rooms, intensive care units, and hospital wards are recreated similarly to reality.
The VR training programs have been designed to focus on practicing proper medical treatment in emergency situations.
All nurses participating in the training can familiarize themselves with various methods to address emergency situations from a first-person point of view. They can repeat each session as much as needed.
