S5: #049: Rafael Grossmann on Using AR/VR to Take Education to the Next Level

In this episode we talk about healthcare solutions using augmented reality and virtual reality. It wasn’t that long ago that holograms and immersive environments were only found in Hollywood science fiction, but the technology is now finding its way into everything from video games and movie theaters to operating rooms and in-patient wards.

As the cost of hardware and software drops and handset capabilities increase, many companies are developing creative solutions to address problems in healthcare. Products like Oculus Rift and Microsoft Hololens have set a high standard, and the industry just got a further push by Apple’s recently launched ARKit.

Here to tell us about it is Dr Rafael Grossmann, he is a general, trauma, advanced laparoscopic and robotic surgeon practicing in Maine, USA. Rafael has been working to advance the use of AR/VR/Mixed R technology and advises companies in this space. In addition to his full time role as a practicing surgeon, Rafael is also an alumnus of Singularity university and faculty of Exponential Medicine. He tells us about some of the great work being done to develop solutions using tools like ARKit and the Hololens platform.

You can get all the show notes from this podcast and watch some of Rafael’s talks at TedX and Exponential Medicine- just go to digitalhealthtoday.com/49.  While you’re there, please take a minute to subscribe to the podcast on your favorite platform, and join our community.  You can also follow us on twitter @dhealthtoday, and follow me @healthtechdan - I’d love to hear from you - especially if you are an AR/VR company working to develop solutions in healthcare.
