EMS - Accelerate expertise on your EMS team
The Virtual Patient Interactive Trainer (VPIT) for EMS is currently under development! The VPIT provides dynamic simulation training for emergency response teams. Using a virtual patient, the VPIT provides life-like changes in breathing, skin pallor, facial expressions, sweat and more for the most effective training. Because training is normally conducted in small, cross functional teams of 4-5, the VPIT allows all members of the group to follow in real time through their own mixed reality viewing device. Each member of the team uses their own Microsoft Hololens to stay engaged and immersed throughout every scenario (Individual views that support the specific needs of various team members are currently under development). Providing both internal and external views of the patient, the VPIT allows the students to make important connections between anatomy and physiology.
