VR technology developed to train paramedics

Research at the University of Chester has been carried out to develop virtual reality software to train paramedics.

The software is designed to provide training in carrying out life-saving procedures.

The VR technology enables the trainee to experience a lifelike situation with a patient. Furthermore, it even allows trainees to feel the sensation of inserting needles.

The collaboration is between the University of Chester and the Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust. The project is being led by Professor Nigel John, part of the university’s Medical Graphics Team.

As a result of this development, the team are looking into new technologies in computer graphics that can be used for the benefit of medical professionals.
