The ENGAGE platform is gaining traction in the world of medical professionals and students as it is the basis of a newly developed training application. Developed through a collaboration between the University of Oxford and VR Education Holdings PLC, the 'Life-Saving Instruction for Emergencies' app (also known as LIFE) is a cutting-edge innovation in medical training for doctors and nurses.
LIFE allows users to enter a "computer-generated hospital through their smartphone or a VR headset." The digitized world is immersive and it prompts healthcare workers to "practice emergency procedures on virtual patients." The application has strong promise, especially "in low resource settings, where simulating emergencies can be difficult." By bringing healthcare training on-the-go, this innovation, powered by the ENGAGE platform, has the potential to equalize the playing field for different regions.
