The people have spoken, and we have come to answer. Here are some of the questions we’ve asked ourselves, and collected some of our top customer queries as well.
Virtual Reality, or “VR,” uses computer technology to create a simulated, three-dimensional environment for exploration and instruction. Check out our blog on how VR functions as a cost-savings training tool.
Health Scholars provides on site or remote training to help you utilize the space you have to train your staff in a safe and clinical environment. For full immersion, the learner needs a space large enough for them to stand and reach out their arms. This allows them to experience VR as if they were actually there! We create a hyper-realistic environment so your movements in VR are translated exactly the same as in real life. The way you turn your head and move your hands gives you the same feel as they would in the real world.
For first time VR users we recommend they are seated in a chair for their first experience. Then do 3 sessions under 10 minutes. After that your mind and body are fully adapted to the virtual experience and you can feel comfortable and confident in the scenarios.
Your team can interact with their virtual team simply by speaking. Our patent-pending, voice-directed technology is state of the art, making it fast and easy to work with in a virtual environment, like you would in a real-life scenario.
The team lead role is specifically designed to encourage clinicians to speak up and take charge in scenarios that are designed to help them fine tune their expertise and build their confidence. It also helps reinforce understanding of each teammates role outside of their typical immediate sphere.
VR is faster than regular training, averaging at around 30 minutes per app, from putting on the headset to debrief. Some applications are even as fast as 10 minutes!
Only the trainee is required to attend, as our apps don’t require a facilitator. This makes it easier to schedule, any time, from anywhere with wi-fi.
Health Scholars provides more than just virtual reality training applications- we also supply scores, reporting, and screen casting, making it possible to monitor your team’s progress and help guide new learners through if necessary.
All that’s needed is a 6ft x 6ft area with a standalone VR headset connected to wi-fi. Health Scholars currently supports the Meta Quest 2 and Pico Neo 3 VR headsets.
