Report Digest


Global Augmented and Virtual Reality in Healthcare Market : Overview

Technological progress over the years have brought about a sea-change in the way in which patients are diagnosed and treated. They have also helped in improving the training procedure of medical practitioners. While CT scans and wearable technology are some of the new technologies that have already redefined the medical landscape, the futuristic technologies of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) are well on their way to bring about further seismic shift in the domain.

Put simply, augmented reality (AR) helps display real-time digital information and media, such as videos and 3D models, leveraging the camera view of smartphones, PCs, and tablets, or using wearable tech, namely wearable glasses and viewfinder. Virtual reality (VR), on the hand, builds a 3D world completely detaching the user from reality.

Global Augmented and Virtual Reality in Healthcare Market : Key Trends

Augmented reality in healthcare already is seeing many applications in terms of providing real-time data and assistance in complex surgical procedures, to supporting aftercare and administration. Minimally invasive surgeries, which are becoming immensely popular these days, can be bettered through virtual and augmented reality enlarged 3D version of vital organs. They also help carry out complex surgeries seamlessly.

They also have had left a mark in curing blindness. Take for example NuEyes, electronic glasses meant for low vision. It is a wearable technology that makes it possible for the visually impaired people to see again while keeping their hands free.

However, scientists are said to be still scratching the surface of virtual reality and augmented reality in the healthcare sector since the whole potential of such futuristic technologies is yet to be fully exploited. Once, even half of that is achieved half of the health issues will be history.
