Explore how Virtual and Augmented Reality will impact the future of Life Sciences and Healthcare on May 28th at EON Reality’s European Headquarters in Manchester, UK.

Advancements in 3D, Virtual and Augmented Reality have spurred innovation and creativity within healthcare training and education.  These advancements have the potential to improve the outcomes of patient safety as well as improve clinical processes.  Hands-on, experiential learning in realistic environments is increasingly required by accreditation bodies, and is also expected by today’s learners. Opportunities for content creation to fulfill these requirements abound. Almost any physiological model or clinical environment can be created to support the education of healthcare professionals -at any level of training. These include creating the ability to: fly through the human heart or lungs, and even envisage real patient imagery in 3D offering the potential to rehearse surgical procedures prior to the actual operation.

Please come join the conversation and listen to experts in the application of Virtual Reality within healthcare discuss these advances.


EON Reality’s Manchester Interactive Digital Center serves as EON’s European Headquarters and its state of the art Virtual and Augmented Reality technologies, development lab, and artistic resources help meet the growing global demand for VR/AR.
