Imagine a scenario where a cardiovascular specialist in New Delhi is preparing to perform a heart transplant on a patient in New York. He dons his VR headset and is immediately transported to the midst of his team standing by in the operating theater. He then proceeds to guide them from the comfort of his office desk with successful results. Thanks to the advancements made in the field of healthcare through XR, this scenario is not far from reality. And this is just a glimpse of what XR has to offer. A prosthetic surgeon could conduct an emergency procedure on an accident victim while in the back of his taxi cab on the way to a conference.
Medical students could learn about the care, diagnosis and treatment of diseases in a virtual setting, thereby training and preparing them for the real world in a far shorter time frame. The possibilities are immense. XR in healthcare makes business sense too. With a market that is expected to reach USD 5.1 billion by 2025 globally, imagine the rich opportunities that VR, AR and MR can open up in the healthcare sector. From solutions that enable remote surgery to patient rehabilitation, we are already making our mark in terms of improving the quality of life. We are committed to extending medical care beyond the hospital room and operating theaters into patients’ homes, giving them a comfortable environment in which to recover. And our mission is to make it affordable and accessible anytime, anywhere.
