Medical training in Virtual Reality (VR) is rapidly gaining traction, offering clinicians a secure environment for learning and honing skills. VR’s immersive simulations, adaptability, and cost-effectiveness make it an appealing platform. However, continuous improvement requires scrutinizing user interaction and leveraging data capture tools for optimal outcomes. The Digi Sim platform stands as a beacon of this evolution, offering immersive VR learning to healthcare workers and students across NHS Wales.
Data capture in VR training is pivotal. VR headsets’ tracking capabilities provide invaluable user data, enabling analysis of training effectiveness and areas needing enhancement. At Digi Sim, clinicians access user performance metrics, fostering greater engagement by allowing professionals to review and retry scenarios.
Previously, the Software Centre of Attention Tracking method was employed, tracking the user’s focal point but failing to capture users eye movements. Although beneficial, it had limitations, unable to discern actual eye movements independently of head motions.
