Asking Big Questions About Brain Injuries with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center Sports Medicine Division

In collaboration with the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center Division of Sports Medicine, the UCSIM | Center for Simulations & Virtual Environments Research helped develop virtual reality soccer scenarios featured in a new video explaining research being conducted with area high schools.

The long-term goal of the 5 year NIH funded study “Real-Time Sensorimotor Feedback for Injury Prevention Assessed in Virtual Reality,” (1U01AR067997-01A1) is to reduce ACL injuries in young female athletes.  This collaborative research project with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is one example of UCSIM’s commitment to help researchers solve urgent real-world problems in safe virtual spaces, unleashing the potential for scientific discovery, innovation, and creative play with immersive technologies.
