GigXR, Inc., a global provider of holographic healthcare training, announced today the release of a new mixed reality application called HoloScenarios. The first module, created in partnership with the University of Cambridge and Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) NHS Foundation Trust, will provide hyper-realistic holographic scenarios for common respiratory conditions and emergencies.

HoloScenarios simulates the entire patient care journey with lifelike realism, from assessment and diagnosis to appropriate intervention and escalation of care. Instructors can place holographic patients and medical equipment into any training environment for users to see both their real-world physical space and the digital overlay of the holograms at same time, whether in a simulation lab, classroom or at-home study or office space for distributed learning. This provides true-to-life and safe-to-fail immersive learning that can be accessed, delivered and shared with learners anywhere in the world.

“Mixed reality is increasingly recognized as a useful method of simulator training. As institutions scale procurement, the demand for platforms that offer utility and ease of mixed reality learning management is rapidly expanding,” said Arun Gupta, Director of Postgraduate Education, Cambridge University Health Partnership. “GigXR has already enabled instructors to better prepare learners with medically accurate simulation for observation and assessment. With HoloScenarios, we’re helping to evolve education from a mentorship-based model to one where students around the world can have equal access to top-flight expertise for mastering invention-based clinical skills.”

Delivered by the Gig Immersive Learning Platform, HoloScenarios centralizes and streamlines access to mixed reality learning, and will includes asthma, anaphylaxis, pulmonary embolism and pneumonia scenarios, the development of which have been informed by subject matter experts at University of Cambridge and doctors at Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) NHS Foundation Trust.

HoloScenarios, and its first set of scenarios for respiratory conditions, is the newest addition to the Gig Immersive Learning Platform’s rapidly expanding catalog of mixed reality applications. Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Neurology scenarios are currently in development with GigXR partners Northwest Permanente P.C. and Michigan Medicine, and will be available soon.

“Empowering instructors with 360-degree preparation for clinical practice represents a milestone for GigXR that allows us to provide our customers with a library of applications that offers solutions for students from their first courses to continuing education,” said David King Lassman, GigXR Founder. “Our first HoloScenarios module represents a new and incredibly powerful way to use mixed reality for healthcare training to be followed up by many more modules and new applications delivered soon.”

The University of Cambridge has also initiated research in tandem with the ongoing development and release of more scenarios and modules for HoloScenarios. The research is exploring benchmarks and criteria for evaluating learner and patient outcomes using mixed reality, as well as evaluating the products and resulting efficiencies for the institution.

GigXR has been scaling access to mixed reality training since its 2019 debut. Today, customers across four continents–from nursing and medical schools, healthcare systems, teaching hospitals, government agencies and defense agencies–use the Gig Immersive learning Platform to seamlessly centralized mixed reality teaching that requires minimal staff and faculty training.
