VROR is an idea rose from the classrooms of Business Development Lab programme. At KTH Royal Institute of Technology, students of multiple technology came together and created a novel economical approach for medical training undergone by medical students.
VROR as an approach enhances the learning experience of the students in a virtual environment. Why VR? VR gives the freedom to test, be creative & improvise your surgical practice.
It is made out of mobile app, google cardboard, medical textbook and professor reviews. It is fun, elegant and ubiquitous platform teasing the centuries old medical crypts.
It is powered by sheer enthusiasm, commitment and determination of charismatic students of EIT entrepreneurial school.
The Reality check
In Augmented reality, the users will be in touch with the real world while interacting with virtual objects around them. In virtual reality, the user is isolated from the real world while immersed in a world that is completely fabricated. Similar to how headphones takes over what we hear, VR headsets takes over our vision.
Who we are
Virtual Reality Operation Room is a state-of-art teaching aid for medical students. We help students in experiencing surgical rooms in virtual environment at the comfort of their residence. It exposes surgical aspirants to a Virtual surgery setting, where they will learn about various surgical tools & equipments.
At VirOR, our mission is to enable medical students and healthcare faculty to access various environments and learning from their mobile device.
To expand our scope into surgical training, enabling users with hands on experience, and receive feedbacks with our gamification approach. Incorporate our solution to other domains like constructions, architecture, molecular science where visualising plays an enormous role.
Why Virtual Reality?
Of the current 3 generations, only one generation of people had underwent just the ‘classic white board’ classrooms. The medium of education is evolving.
eLearning has proved its effectiveness over the past decade. Research suggests that most of the population learn best kinaesthetically , meaning virtual reality is a great option and next step in this evolution. In VirOR , we aim to bring this immersive learning simple and affordable to all.
What to expect
A space-to-learn, desk-to-create, place-to-collaborate, virtual environment access and much more..
We have developed virtual environment of an Operation Room, with support from lab experts. Users can download our mobile application to learn, contribute and network. With the web version, they can add notes, include contents in the virtual environments, which will be available in their customised VR screen.
What we need
As a startup, we would be interested to partner with collaborators, who like us, wants to transcend the way of education, beyond the current approach. Also, we are
looking forward to onboard game developers to have our autonomous content creation platforms.
