12 DECEMBER - PM

The development and use of immersive/XR technologies in healthcare is growing fast throughout the world. With the domain still in its infancy, the potential for creating innovative contents & apps is boundless, and the domain is thus ripe for innovative R&D and lucrative business, especially for start-ups.

This Thematic conference opens up your eyes by presenting a variety of XR techniques that are in use, in development, or just concepts, such as for: training surgeons, obstetricians, emergency physicians; drilling rescue & emergency responders; treating phobias for spiders & heights, addictions, & other psychological issues; producing hypnosis; reassuring children undergoing heavy medical procedures & helping them lower their anxieties by VR-based biofeedback.

International companies may find it strategically useful to sponsor/adopt this innovative, straight-to-the-point conference.
