Mixed reality tech used to train NHS staff

By Chloe Kent

UK training company Virti has been delivering remote educational programmes to NHS employees during the Covid-19 pandemic through virtual, augmented and mixed reality (XR).

Following approval by Health Education England, Virti was able to roll out specially designed Covid-19 modules for use on its immersive training platform, which NHS staff can access via a headset, desktop or smart device. The system uses artificial intelligence (AI) to assess users and improve their performance.

The software has been used to upskill clinicians in key areas such as best personal protective equipment practice, how to navigate an unfamiliar intensive care ward and how to engage with patients and their families.

Virti founder and CEO Dr Alexander Young said: “By providing the most advanced data and tech-driven training to NHS frontline staff, we are helping to ensure that patients receive the highest possible standard of care, whilst simultaneously prioritising the safety of our essential healthcare workers.”
