Creating a realistic training environment
The University of Pennsylvania (Penn), established in 1740, needed a better way to train students in CPR by allowing them to practice in realistic environments. Penn found that when put into emergency situations, many people forget key aspects of their CPR training due to complicating factors that include the management of bystanders in an emergency setting and other environmental factors.
Another challenge for training in CPR is providing trainees timely feedback on pressure, angle of compression, timing, and depth.
BrickSimple, in conjunction with the University of Pennsylvania, worked to increase the effectiveness and realism of CPR training using HoloLens technology. BrickSimple developed CPReality, an augmented reality application that can collect data on performance while simulating the stresses that often accompany emergency situations.
Using this technology, BrickSimple finally makes it possible to simulate these challenges in order to provide the best training possible.
