    Virtual and Augmented Reality technology facilitates the creation of an artificial, computer-generated simulation or recreation of a real-life environment or situation which immerses the user by making them feel like they are experiencing the simulated reality firsthand, primarily by stimulating their vision and hearing.

    Augmented Reality applications offer huge potential in contributing to general wellness and care. Here are some well-known generic examples of Augmented reality for medical education

    • Healthcare practitioners who are now able to project medical imagery onto patient’s bodies using head-mounted displays. Projecting CT scans through the display can give doctors “X-ray vision” of patients and provide important contextual cues for diagnosing patients.
    • A person who views work-out related data, right around his field of vision and improves his wellness and fitness regime by wearing a Smart Glass.
    • Students who get a better understanding of the body anatomy through overlaying of digital information in the form of audio, video or 3D models onto human skeletons or in textbooks.
