 “This product is so valuable. We don’t know if we are, or when we are coming back to classroom learning. Being able to work distantly with our students on critical thinking and decision making is crucial to developing our students.”

It is so efficient from a training standpoint because VRpatients is programmable all the way from start to finish. I can set the case to where all they have to do is load it and it runs. It doesn’t require any other involvement from me while they’re going through the scenario, which really leaves me free to actually see how their thought process is going and how they’re reacting to what they’re seeing and what the patient’s doing.”

“Your reality is suspended so it feels as if you are actually treating a patient. For example, somebody who has difficulty breathing, you walk into the room, you can automatically hear if they’re actually having difficulty breathing and to what extent. So having the audio and the visual aid itself and the virtual reality actually gives you that huge advantage.”

– Kyle Durjan, Firefighter/EMT, Paramedic Student

 

“Nothing will ever replicate a real scene, the smells, the noise, the real screaming.  But this will accusom them to what some of our scenes look like. That way, they have that prime recognition thinking, although it’s on the virtual side, when they see it in real life, their brains know how to react when they encounter it in real life.”.

It’s totally immersive. When you start going through the different treatments, the different assessments you can do in a living scenario, in real-time with the stress that comes with all these options, you really feel like you are experiencing it in real life.”

– Ben Edmondson, First Response Training Group Student

“Being a nurse, it was real life. Having the exact equipment I could be using right then and there, being able to show how to do things like star the IV, the oxygen, and all the protocols was amazing.  There is such a shortage for people to do hands-on clinical education when they’re in school, for us to duplicate that without having to buy all the equipment or set up a room is fantastic.. I can change and regulate any training based on the student’s needs and immediately assess their progress.”

“My years of training have always been based upon a practical simulation with a dummy and mannequin. Virtual reality immerses you into the entire scene itself. So you can really get that well-painted picture of what you’re actually walking into. Is the home clean?

Is it dirty? Does the patient live by themself, are they able to keep after themself, and stuff like that. That way, you don’t have to necessarily prompt yourself nor does the instructor have to prompt you on what’s taking place in the scene. There’s no imagining it. You already have the visual aid of what it looks like. So it really gives you that mindset of where you’re going to go for your differential diagnosis without being told.”
