The VR training app “DIALYSIS: APD Cycler” helps healthcare professionals to prepare dialysis patients who will be treated with APD (Automated Peritoneal Dialysis) for the operation and use of the Baxter HOMECHOICE CLARIA™ APD system.
The VR training can also be used to train medical staff in the core functions of the Cycler system.
The initial version of this application was supported by DaVita USA and subsequently extended/adapted to the european market.
DIALYSIS: APD Cycler is a comprehensive training, which mediates the patient in 6 chapters the process of:
Placing the cassette in the cycler
Connecting drain bag
Connecting solution bags
Priming the tubes
Connecting the patient line
Our friendly, intelligent Avatar guides the patient through the sophisticated Weltenmacher learning path – each chapter consisting of 3 learning phases:
Explanation (theoretical basics)
Guided (avatar explains steps)
Training (user trains on his own)
This ensures, that the learned process gets internalized and stays in memory.
