KurzbeschreibungVirtual and Augmented Reality can support applications in medicine, e.g. for training, planning or therapy. This lecture derives the technical principles of multimodal (audiovisual, haptic, etc.) input devices, displays, and rendering techniques. Examples are presented in the fields of surgical training, intra-operative support, and rehabilitation. The lecture is accompanied by lab demonstrations.
LernzielProvide theoretical and practical knowledge of new principles and applications of multi-modal simulation and interface technologies in medical education, therapy, and rehabilitation.
InhaltVirtual and Augmented Reality have the potential to provide descriptive and practical information for medical applications, while relieving the patient and/or the physician. Multi-modal interactions between the user and the virtual environment facilitate the generation of high-fidelity sensory impressions, by using visual, haptic, and auditory modalities. On the basis of the existing physiological constraints, this lecture derives the technical requirements and principles of multi-modal input devices, displays, and rendering techniques. Several examples are presented that are currently being developed or already applied, for instance in surgical training, intra-operative augmentation, and rehabilitation. The lecture will be accompanied by visits to facilities equipped with current VR and AR equipment.
