Real Response, Australia’s first first responder training company, has created BlueRoom Simulator, a mixed reality system that helps Navy, Army and Air Force medics learn how to use real medical equipment and explore unprecedented medical situations. complex within a virtual environment
The BlueRoom Simulator uses the latest mixed reality (MR) headset Varjo XR3 to put doctors into a virtual environment where they can still use their hands and body to interact with real world objects in the environment.
Real Response explains that unlike virtual reality (VR), where operators need to interact with the digital world, MR allows users to enter virtual worlds like themselves. and hone their physical and motor skills just as they would in the real world. This is especially useful in areas such as medicine where doctors need to train the body. Build muscle memory as they learn how to treat patients in various rigorous environments. from field operations Remote hospitals, helicopters, planes and ships.
Real Response co-founder and registered physician Ben Krynski said, “This is truly revolutionary.”
Based on real-world responses, BlueRoom Simulator allows physicians to practice in an environment that ‘high value’ and difficult to access ‘It costs a little’
Some examples include having a doctor insert an IV line and administer medication into the back of a C130J Hercules while flying across the Pacific. or a thoracic tube inserted while preparing for takeoff with the patient in the back of a Blackhawk UH-60 .
BlueRoom Simulator was created with support from Defense Innovation Hub, which invests in innovative technologies to enhance defense capabilities. and grow Australia’s defense industry and innovation sector.
Real Response says it is continually developing and refining this capability. Create a new virtual environment where doctors can hone their skills. and also exploring other use cases for this technology in various industries
“BlueRoom Simulator can also be used to solve many training problems in industries such as mining and telecommunications,” explains solution architect Dale Linegar. “You can do hands-on training in potentially hazardous environments. Expensive or impractical, such as working at heights or in confined spaces.”
