Virti mixed reality platform
The Virti simulation platform puts users in a range of realistic simulations designed by healthcare professionals, testing their decision-making ability and knowledge. 

Virtual reality is going to be a big part of the future and a big part of training students, new employees, teaching new skills to existing employees, and so on. Virti

The research tells us that VR not only reduces training costs but also reduces errors and improves performance versus other hands-off training. In August, we wrote about a startup using VR to teach vital life-saving skills, such as CPR, and the potential we saw in such a startup. Others have seen the same potential in VR for medical training and are using it to great effect.

One such med-tech startup is UK-based Virti. Their mixed reality simulation platform puts users in a range of realistic simulations designed by healthcare professionals, testing their decision-making ability and knowledge. 

These simulations provide high-quality, flexible, evidence-based and cost-efficient alternatives to traditional teaching methods. Apply Virtitheoretical knowledge to situations based on real cases to test and develop critical thinking, on-the-spot decision making, communication skills, and make any mistakes on a computer simulation! 

Of course, no digital platform is complete without a companion dashboard, which measures progress, errors made, skills tested, and all the analytics training providers need to ensure everyone is getting the most out of the training.

Last year, Virti won the VR Healthcare Award at the VR Awards 2018. This adds to their other awards, including the SimGHOSTS Innovation Award, Association of Medical Education Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) and Technology Innovation Excellence (TIE) awards, and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh’s Triennial Surgical Innovation Award. Most recently, they have joined the Mayor of London’s International Business Programme.

We would wish them luck with the important work they are doing, but it doesn’t seem as though they need it...
