Teaming with 3fs to develop a modern software solution
Looking for a more usable and cost-effective solution to deliver anaphylactic shock training, the Simulation Centre of Ljubljana partnered with 3fs to develop AWAKE, a HoloLens-based simulation prototype. Using advanced rendering, AWAKE can make clinical simulation more believable and immersive using mixed reality to mimic the environmental stresses involved in real life situations.
In order to create the most lifelike simulations possible, 3fs developed algorithms used in the AWAKE engine that enabled an extensive array of wanted and unwanted clinical outcomes.
3fs also created authentic 3D models of patients in order to display lifelike expressions and symptoms to strengthen the training experience. 3fs worked directly with leading instructors across multiple iterations of the solution to ensure the final experience was medically credible.
The AWAKE solution is more cost efficient than traditional learning techniques due to the use of digital assets that eliminate the need for large storage and training environments.
With the mobility of a HoloLens headset, the AWAKE solution is also much more accessible across geographies and isn’t limited to a clinical environment.
Building the future of medical simulations
Since implementing AWAKE in September of 2018, the Simulation Centre of Ljubljana has trained over 1,033 candidates.
The AWAKE solution has contributed to a drop in the time needed to conduct first-aid training from one hour per candidate to just over 12 minutes.
The time needed to perform professional training for vitally endangered patients with anaphylactic shock has dropped from 5 hours per group to 1 hour.
The latent security risks factor, has dropped from 14 cases in 60 groups examined in 2015 to 5 cases out of 60 groups examined in 2019. Of those who’ve used the AWAKE solution, 93.93 percent of 1,033 trainees have rated it as excellent.
The Simulation Centre tested the incoming knowledge of medical staff and tested medical staff upon completion of the AWAKE training solution. The Centre found that participants had increased their knowledge of anaphylactic shock treatment by 60 percent.
According to executed tests by using AWAKE the outcome knowledge is 60 percent better as it was the income knowledge.
Using AWAKE, the Simulation Centre of Ljubljana has achieved its goal of efficiently reaching a broad international audience of medical professionals and trainees with a truly immersive, believable, cost-efficient, and mobile experience.
