Uconn Health trains surgeons on single-use cadavers. This is impractical, time consuming and expensive. The company therefore uses virtual reality to train location-independent at a fraction of the cost.
The application is made for the Oculus Quest 2 and contains lifelike scenarios at six different difficulty levels. The VR training uses a ‘double loop’ system in which what has been learned is applied again in the same exercise. The teacher observes from a distance and gives instructions from the virtual learning environment
Research shows that this way of learning is 570% faster than learning via traditional methods. Moreover, the risk is lower, the student can train and practice more often with scenarios that were previously only possible in reality.
