For years, Virtual Reality has been used to immerse us in new scenarios, places, and experiences. However, this technology also enables us to dive into a simulated reality to learn the best way to respond to specific situations. In other words, thanks to Virtual Reality, it is possible to recreate tension-filled situations in a safe environment and practice the best way to deal with them.
The utilization of Virtual Reality
Virtual Reality has become an essential technology in reducing stress situations at work. Thanks to immersive environments, it is possible to guide individuals through tense situations to make the right decisions, while also observing, studying, and monitoring their responses.
The process is straightforward: The person in question wears Virtual Reality glasses to experience a stressful scene and attempts to remain calm to respond appropriately.
This practice can take the form of a tutorial, informing users about the steps to respond appropriately, or an evaluation, putting them to the test and allowing them to make mistakes to understand which is the best option and why.
Virtual Reality and its benefits
Thanks to Virtual Reality, it is possible to conduct realistic training with some of advantages that traditional training lacks.
On the one hand, it enables safe experimentation in high-risk situations, which promotes more efficient information assimilation.
On the other hand, Augmented Reality helps to significantly reduce the costs associated with using real equipment.
All these factors make emergency management training one of the areas where we could use immersion most effectively.
Emergency Simulators thanks to Virtual Reality
At Innovae, we offer various simulators that contribute to the training of professionals in high-stress situations.
This simulator enhances the training of healthcare technicians as it enables them to perform typical tasks carried out in a health emergency, which are difficult to convey in a training setting, such as performing electrocardiograms, treating injuries, or triaging in a traffic accident.
The goal of this training is to teach users to remain calm in high-stress environments, enabling them to assess the condition of an injured person and apply the appropriate protocols accordingly.
The first aid simulator allows the user to experience realistic situations where they must apply first aid maneuvers and protocols.
Among other modules, it includes basic life support, how to respond to cases of airway obstruction, and demonstrations on how to apply bandages and simple splints.
Thanks to this simulator, the user will learn various action protocols for dealing with fire incidents based on different factors, such as the location or type of fire.
Specifically, they can experience fires in three different scenarios – a kitchen, a warehouse, and an office – which occur due to six causes, such as oil, flammable liquid, a gas leak, or a short circuit.
For the optimal management of these and other Virtual Reality-based training programs, at Innovae, we also offer SAVI. This solution becomes possible to make the most of these training experiences by generating statistics and implementing an evaluation system.
