Lung Cases

A collaboration between the Centre for Innovation and the Leiden University Medical Centre resulted in a HoloLens application called ‘Augmedicine: Lung cases’. This application integrates sound, visualizations, 3D projection and touch to create a learning environment that realistically simulates the process of listening to the lungs. This application allows medical students and doctors to train themselves on a wide range of scenarios in diagnosing patients that present with shortness of breath.

Lab Safety

Laboratories, especially those used for teaching and learning, contain inherent dangers and hazards. Teachers in a lab environment are thus confronted with the simple question: How can one teach students how to work in a lab which they are not allowed to enter until they are familiar with safety procedures? In the developed training module Lab Safety, students can now practise decision making in critical situations in a realistic but safe way.

Format: interactive virtual reality experience based on 360° video

Target Group: First-year BSc students of Biology, Chemistry and Physics and any other attending their compulsory safety training they have to complete before starting to work in the LEI labs.

Field Techniques

Visiting an archaeological site can be dangerous and confusing. Students are confronted with simple questions like: Where should I go? What am I looking at? The virtual reality (VR) application Fieldwork Techniques allows students to get familiar with an excavation site before visiting. In this way, we aim for students to become aware of relevant risks and possibilities that are present on site and recognise what is going on when they go to their first real excavation.

Time to Act - Emergency Care

The Centre for Innovation of Leiden University, together with the Leiden University Medical Centre (the team of Prof. dr. MEJ Reinders), created an immersive interactive VR experience using 360° video to practise the application of the ABCDE approach. This cornerstone method is a systematic approach to quickly and accurately assess and act upon emergency situations concerning critically ill patients.

Behaviour: not an issue

This virtual reality application offers elderly care professionals in training a unique insight into behavioural symptoms of patients with dementia through a virtual reality role-playing exercise. Students can experience different situations related to daily ins and outs of a patient and through this build understanding of how a problematic situation arises and develops.
