Dialysis Orientation is a VR application that will help patients through the decision making process of which therapy they want to choose for their kidney failure.
Moreover it provides new staff the opportunity to learn standardized content.
This application was developed with the medical experts from Ruhruniversität Bochum: Prof. Dr. med. Westhoff and Dr. med. Zgoura.
Dialysis Orientation is a virtual and interactive value-neutral introduction to the different kidney replacement therapies:
Hemo dialysis (HD)
Peritoneal dialysis (PD)
In several chapters, patients get to know the different therapies and learn how each of them affects their everday’s lives regarding for example nutrition and vacation.
They even get to try out some exemplary handles of CAPD or they can take the role of an HD patient in a dialysis center.
VR FOR TRAINING
The aim of the training is to support healthcare providers in educating their patients + staff. When using VR, the users are more engaged and focused. This means, they are more integrated into the decision-making process, which leads to better therapeutic outcome.
According to different studies, VR trainings are an affordable way for faster training with better results compared to convential trainings. The key results in a PWC study on VR trainings in soft skills:
