Changing the Game
VRiMS specialises in creating extended reality resources through virtual reality, augmented reality, and the metaverse. Our primary focus is on medical and surgical education and global health.
Our mission is to develop training resources for low to middle-income countries utilising extended reality technologies.
In addition to being a resource creation entity, VRiMS is also a research group. We deploy scientific methodologies to assess the benefits of using extended reality in medical and surgical education.
In partnership with the Brighton and Sussex Medical School, and supported by funding from Health Education England, VRiMS has successfully delivered seven one-week courses. These courses have offered cadaveric hands-on surgical procedures and engaged over 6000 participants from 101 countries.
Our innovative approach involves live streaming of 360-degree videos in a virtual studio setup, making use of the entire 360 space with several camera overlays.
Our content spans all surgical specialities.
Currently, the VRiMS team travels extensively, hosting live streaming events globally to produce additional resources for low to middle-income countries.
