One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is “How do we cast what the VR user is seeing to an external monitor?”. When casting from your headset, the VR user can share what they see in VR wirelessly, making it a more inclusive experience for all involved. The VR view will appear on the external device you choose, allowing a user to share their VR experience in real time.
As in any operating room environment, or classroom for that matter, one of the most critical areas to pay attention to is sanitization. Running a VR training program means that sharing is often involved. There’s no getting around the fact that everyone is covered in sweat and oil. Because of this, it’s important to keep the headsets as clean as possible.
We really enjoyed sitting down to connect with Megan Graham, CST/RST Surgical Technologist Program, Primary Instructor at Renton Technical College in Renton, WA.
Implementing a VR training component to your lab can be a daunting process to the uninformed, so we’re here to help you with deciding what type of headset is right for your program.
Bunker Hill Community College's Surgical Technology Program needed a solution when the pandemic went online. A year later, the Surgical Technology Program is still using it! Jayne MacPherson, Department Chair at Bunker Hill Community College met with James Hay and Jumana Mascati from PeriopSim in Fall 2021 to do an overview of the first year using PeriopSim, and here's what she had to say:
There are elements for Surgical Technology Program Directors and Educators to consider when evaluating PeriopSim before taking the request to your Dean. Over the past year, we have talked to many Educators and Directors and helped them build a case to integrate PeriopSim into their curriculum. Here are a few tips that we have compiled if you are thinking about PeriopSim as well.
