Last Day of Virtual Reality Healthcare Products Showcase & Final Chance to Win an Oculus Quest
Participate today or rewatch the recorded sessions from this week’s VR Voice online showcase of Virtual Reality products which have direct application to healthcare — AND — enter to win an Oculus Quest to start using VR in your healthcare simulation program. This free online event and contest (which ends today) provides clinical simulation programs with the opportunity to learn about the different platforms, applications and services virtual reality companies from around the world are offering healthcare. From pain management for patients, to the latest in healthcare simulation VR training platforms — this hyper focused event is designed to support healthcare institutions expand their digital toolkits while dealing with COVID-19.
Win an Oculus VR Headset to Start Using VR in Your Simulation Program Today!
Sponsored by BehaVR, you can quickly enter to win 1 of 5 Oculus Quests (64GB) by completing a very short form. This $400 VR headset is completely wireless and a standalone product which, unlike the Rift, does not need to be connected to a computer to work. The Quest’s all-in-one VR platform enables for clinical educators to quickly connect to a mobile app and immediately get started with VR “out of the box”. The Oculus Insight tracking system instantly reflects your movements in VR without the need for any external accessories. The hand held touch controllers precisely recreate your hands, their gestures and interactions, so every game is real enough to reach out and touch. Best of all, the Oculus Quest works with your environment, so you can play standing or sitting, in spaces big or small.

Watch live today or rewatch recorded sessions from earlier this week of the VR , which is showcases the latest Virtual Reality technologies which have specific application to our industry of healthcare. Read about our coverage of VR Voice’s annual event which happened in early 2020 just before the Coronavirus started to spread globally. Systems covered include Oxford Medical Simulation, Health Scholars, GIGXR, Polhemus, PrecisionOS, IKONA, FundamentalVR, Enduvo, and many more. Here below are some of our top recommendations to check out through us as well:
Oxford Medical Simulation (OMS) is a virtual reality platform that delivers quality, evidence-based and highly realistic simulation. The platform, headquartered in Boston, Mass., assists in efficiently and effectively training healthcare professionals in world-class patient management practices to improve patient care, and without the possibility of risking real human lives. Those interested in VR Nursing, VR IPE, or Distance training opportunities should learn more!
Health Scholars is a cloud-based, virtual reality-ready clinical training platform with VR simulations, simulation center management and clinical readiness reporting solutions for the management, delivery and analysis of clinical training. The platform was founded by healthcare professionals who recognized the need to advance immersive education and clinical training effectiveness to support medical simulation educators around the world.
UbiSim is a multidisciplinary team of nursing educators, healthcare simulation experts, software engineers and 3D artists, working to combine nursing simulation and virtual reality for an immersive learning experience. Headquartered in Montreal, Canada, the company’s goal is to make nursing simulation more affordable, more accessible and more realistic than ever. Using unique benefits presented through immersive virtual reality in medicine, UbiSim offers a complete simulation lab on a flexible platform. This allows the user to create and experience realistic clinical situations without needing to access physical simulation centers that are often booked months ahead of time.
VRpatients is an immersive virtual patient platform perfect for educating and training EMS first responders, either online or through Virtual Reality (VR). EMS Programs looking to immediately provide distance education and training opportunities should absolutely learn more about the just-launched VRpatients platform. Born out of the former product name Virtual Education Systems, VRpatients is a complete and total upgrade of its former self — with a comprehensive learning management system and an easy to use scenario development tool all accomplished through dynamic virtual reality presentation. Today we learn more about this brand new Emergency Medical Services virtual training tool!
