DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) Market in Healthcare (U.S. Markets for Surgery; Medical Education and Training; Pain Management, Rehabilitation and Therapy)" report to their offering.
Through virtual reality (VR), a real-world entity or environment is represented as the virtual environment (VE). Augmented reality (AR), "mixed reality," integrates, injects or superimposes virtual elements and visualizations over the real world. Via virtual reality in healthcare applications, VR technology is able to produce VEs such as an operating room, surgical site, patient anatomy, or therapeutic simulation.
Applications of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality in Healthcare Fully immersive VR technologies have been developed by specialty companies that provide capabilities well beyond the requirements of practical applications in client industries. Most technologies considered in this report qualify as VR or AR technologies due to their ability to manipulate medical imaging data or other inputs to generate VEs or inject virtual elements, overlays and other visualized information over the user's sight.
Partial visual immersion, image injection and navigation represent qualities of the most commonly deployed VR and AR products in surgery, medical education, healthcare training, therapy, and rehabilitation.
