Medical Virtual Reality

Benefits of Medical Virtual Reality

Ghost Productions can build a virtual reality medical simulation to help you demonstrate surgical tools and medical devices. Virtual reality surgical simulations make it possible to allow all members of a surgical team to practice working together to become a well honed and cohesive group. VR programs can be set delivered anywhere, experienced by anyone, and provide unlimited access to mission critical training opportunities without any additional expense beyond the creation of the initial software program.

Medical VR Research & Findings

VR medical training has been proven to reduce physician errors 6X, improve surgeon speed by 29%, and increase practitioner efficiency by 70%. Visit our medical VR research page to read the studies and findings and how a medical VR solution  can achieve your training goals. Visit our medical research page where we’ve provided many peer-reviewed double-blind studies that compare virtual reality medical training to traditional training methods. You may be surprised to learn how many lives could potentially be saved if medical VR adoption in the medical industry became as common and standardized as flight simulators in the airline industry.

Saving Lives with Virtual Reality

Simulation based training is used in nearly all mission critical industries to minimize catastrophic human errors. Learn how virtual reality is about to revolutionize medical training and significantly reduce the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States.

Medical Virtual Reality Hardware Guide

We’ve tested and reviewed all of the available virtual reality hardware to find the best solutions specifically for medical VR and surgical simulations. Ghost Productions provides information on how to acquire, setup, maintain, and deliver the best solutions medical sales reps, immersive eLearning solutions for medical training centers, and interactive trade show VR experiences that will keep you flooded in interested doctors and surgeons. Also, get ahead of the curve with access to our cutting edge experimentation with force feedback haptics hardware and artificially intelligent virtual patients and provide doctors with the most lifelike diagnostic tests ever experienced.

COMPUTER

VR capable laptop and desktop computer

WraithStation & WraithStation Portable


You can choose either a portable laptop or a high-powered virtual reality capable computer to drive your medical VR program. Both systems are capable of low, latency, high-resolution output and advanced graphical processing like simulating soft tissues and fluid dynamics. While the laptop makes it easy for a sale rep to demonstrate a VR surgical simulation anywhere they need to go, the workstation features somewhat faster processing and liquid cooling making it better suited for continuous use by multiple users at a tradeshow or in a training center. Both systems can be safely shipped to remote users as long as they are properly packaged for travel.

PORTS

display port and mini display port

DisplayPort 1.2 or Mini Display Port

1x USB 3.0 port


DisplayPort technology is capable of much faster and more robust communication between the computer and the VR headset than HDMI allowing for better and brighter graphics and extremely low latency.

RAM

16 Gigabytes +


Random accessible memory (RAM) allows larger and more complex applications  to run more smoothly. The more RAM you have the better everything works.

VIDEO CARD

NVIDIA GeForce 2080ti

RTX 2070 or better


Virtual reality programs rely on real time rendering graphics processing units (GPU). To ensure optimal visualization and the most photorealistic anatomy and pathology, Ghost Productions, develops all Wraith VR medical programs with optimization for NVIDIA GeForce RTX series of GPU accelerated video cards. These advanced graphics processing units are made for both portable computers and workstations.

CPU

Intel i7 or Better


Because modern virtual reality hardware is generally more taxing on graphics processing units (GPU) than central processing units (CPU) it is possible to run a high-definition VR program on relatively low end CPUs. Technically, even the highest quality VR headsets can run well on Intel i5-4590 or AMD Ryzen 5 1500X or greater but because Wraith VR programs developed by Ghost Productions are serious surgical simulations, we recommend a medium strength CPU just to insure everything runs smoothly and quickly.

VR HEADSET

Oculus Rift S and Touch ControlerS

Oculus Rift S


We’ve tested every virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality system in production today and the best for the purposes of surgical simulation and VR medical training programs is the Oculus Rift S. The Rift S is a second generation production VR head mounted display (HMD) and haptics feedback touch controllers. In our tests, it produces the sharpest visuals, is the easiest and fastest to configure, requiring than ~5 minutes from unboxing to running a medical VR program.

The Rift S sports a 2nd generation inside-out tracking system that is capable of providing exceptionally accurate head and hand tracking without requiring external cameras or complicated setup procedures every time the system is moved to a new location. Integrated stereo audio and microphone makes the Rift S a highly capable demonstration and communication device right out of the box.

Until something better comes along and when it does you can be certain we’ll be running all new VR/AR/MR products through their paces as they become available, Ghost Productions has selected the Oculus Rift S as our official platform standard for all medical VR programs we develop.

Frequently Asked Questions about Medical Virtual Reality

How can I deliver a medical VR experience to a doctor? What’s an HMD? How long does it take to deliver a VR medical training program? What’s the difference between inside-out and outside-in tracking? If you have questions, we have answers and we provide them in an easily searchable web page dedicated specifically to providing you with the best information for anyone interested in learning more about medical and surgical virtual reality simulations.
