Training and education are important components of companies and also medical institutions.
Individual training contents are difficult to convey in theory or hard to practice in real trainings. Examples include areas that are difficult to access, such as operating theatres or clean rooms.
Processes and techniques are also sometimes difficult to train in real life, such as emergency situations in a hospital, sensitive production processes, and the absence and correction of defects in machines.
With the help of programmed software solutions, such training content can be conveyed. In a virtual setting, the relevant process or even faults in machines or preparations are simulated, environments can be recreated, and situations that would be impossible or difficult to represent in reality, can be reproduced.
This allows individual training contents to be conveyed in a targeted manner.
One example is the reconstruction of hospital rooms such as an intensive care unit, an operating room with its associated airlock or a treatment room in a hospital. These rooms are modeled with the complete equipment and errors are built into various scenarios. The training situation can be displayed on a desktop or experienced in a VR headset.
Students and physicians have to find and solve the errors in the simulation.
There are several technical ways to deliver training and educational content in a virtual setting.
On the one hand, processes, procedures and training content can be filmed using a 360-degree camera and made available virtually. In THE VATRIX’ software, trainings can then be provided. These are available remotely and at any time and learning progress can be monitored.
On the other hand, certain situations can be replicated. For this purpose, corresponding environments, machines or their functionalities are modeled and programmed, and different scenarios are simulated. The modeling and programming of individual training and educational content allows high flexibility and the participants can actively participate in the process. For example, they can operate medical equipment themselves, review settings in a defined scenario, intervene in a process or solve simulated problems.
There are several use cases for delivering training and educational content in a virtual setting:
· Simulation of processes
· Simulation of stress situations
· Simulation of machine functionalities (training, troubleshooting, instruction)
· Training of individual production steps
· Training of processes
· Simulations for error analysis (room of error)
· Consultancy to find appropriate technical solution
· Recording of training situation and preparation in virtual environment
· Modelling and programming of training scenarios
· Support hard & software and updates
· Introductory workshop
· Project management
