RESEARCH PROJECT: AUGMENTED REALITY – EMERGENCY MEDICINE INJURY SIMULATIONS

Project Purpose & Justification
The University of Cincinnati Health Simulation Center in the Department of Emergency Medicine, College of Medicine requested development of Augmented Reality (AR) models of simulated medical injuries. The AR injury models will be projected onto training mannequins for use in their medical simulation education program, improving the realistic nature of the simulation training, saving funding to recreate simulated injuries in the lab, and ideally improving learner retention and academic outcomes.
UCSIM will develop a prototype Augmented Reality (AR) mobile application for Apple iOS and Android mobile phones that will project simulated medical injuries onto training mannequins. The AR simulated injuries will be triggered by a “trigger image” that can be customized by the trainers.
