Improving Patient Outcomes with 3D Industry Solutions

Hospitals and therapists have a new way to treat patients in the 21st century. Cutting edge realism techniques of Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE solutions offers infinite possibilities in the area of patient care.

Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE solutions for patient care have been developed in partnership with advanced medical laboratories and universities for various applications. In the area of research and exposure therapy, 3D animations are used to study and treat patients suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, phobias and addictions. For education and training, “cyber anatomy” educates people about the human body and simulating a surgery “in Virtuo” prepares medical practitioners for complex surgeries. In the area of public health education, 3D can be used to simulate the world from the perception of a person with medical problems. For instance, by allowing users to experience how it feels to have impaired vision or in a wheel chair, the government helps raise public awareness to provide better care for handicapped citizens.

3D or Virtual Reality is used in many applications other than engineering.  For instance, it has been an important part of the gaming and entertainment industries for years.  Now, Virtual Reality has made its way into the life sciences industry as a tool for medical research, education and patient care.

Cutting edge realism techniques of DS’ Virtual Reality solution offers infinite possibilities in life sciences. This solution comes with an authoring platform, a set of Virtual Reality libraries, a deployment tool, and use-case references for using the tools.

DS Virtual Reality application in Life Sciences:

  • Treatment of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
  • Treatment of phobias
  • Treatment of addictions
  • Pain control for burn trauma patients
  • Patient behavior and perception studies
  • Public health education
  • Anatomy, pathology and surgical training for medical students and practitioners
  • Cyber anatomy
  • ...and many others.

The key argument for 3DVIA Virtools is the speed at which you can develop [the VR] environments and the fact that you know they will work.
