Educate physicians on migraine pathophysiology
Teach mechanisms of action for five classes of therapies
Ensure medically accurate models at every level
Reported the HoloLens experience met their learning objectives
Felt that the HoloLens feature enhanced their overall learning experience
Reported that the HoloLens activity was applicable to improving their clinical practice
*187 learners were surveyed immediately following educational activity
This is the future for medical students. I’m a little bit jealous.
Mapping out the experience
To enhance medical education tools, we created an immersive experience to demonstrate five different classes of therapies at three levels of magnification – whole brain, cellular, and receptor.
Getting it right
Medically accurate 3D representations of neurons, receptors, and other relevant features were created to demonstrate mechanisms of action in this mixed reality program. Animations gave life to the assets to provide a clear picture.
Bringing the experience to life
Microsoft HoloLens and Unity technologies combined to allow our mixed reality experience enter the real world for the medical education space. Clinicians can walk around and interact with the 3D models in small group settings, facilitating educational discussion with peers and experts.
Setting the stage
Leading physicians were trained to operate the HoloLens experience as an educational tool for large group presentations. Spectator view allows the holograms and animations within the headset to be shared with the audience.
At live symposia, faculty used HoloLens to explain a migraine attach at cellular and receptor level. By using the HoloLens platform, faculty were able to interact with large groups of 100+ participants to create a memorable and unique learning experience.
Beyond the presentation
Education continues beyond live events with a webGL version of the experience, extending the same content in scalable format for physicians to interact with and share with their colleagues.
