A state-of-the-art facility for immersive simulation activities has been created for the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.
The virtual reality chamber will allow students to learn by participating in realistic medical scenarios. With six projectors displaying a continuous 360 degree image of an accident scene or a hospital room, students are able to learn in a more kinaesthetic way that replicates real-life situations.
This complements the adjacent Simulation Facility, which recreates hospital suites with cutting-edge technology and life-like manikins that enable students to practise clinical scenarios.
