Forensic Psychology Training in VR

We developed virtual reality experiences that allow medical staff to train in areas of violence, manage critical incidents, and become accustomed to procedural tasks that one would do in their field of work. We achieved this by developing a suite of scenarios for St. Joseph’s Hospital & McMaster University that nurses, doctors, and other medical professionals train with to prepare them for in-field complex and possibly dangerous situations. Using virtual reality, we can immerse the trainee in an environment that simulates real-life, allowing it to have the biggest impact on in-field experiences. More specifically, we have created scenarios that have occurred in the past, but rather than a static ending, the medical professionals can make their own decisions along the way. Their decisions will impact the overall experience and outcome.

NeckTronics Augmented Reality

We collaborated with NeckTronics to develop an augmented reality (AR) application intended to help patients recovering from neck injuries to conduct a range of neck-strengthening exercises on their own time, without supervision.

This concept relies on AR-enabled smart glasses embedded with a NeckTronics neck rehabilitation device to assist head positioning and exercise flow. During use, the application captures the patient’s progress for physician review to monitor progress on recovery.
