VR In Medicine And Pharmacy
Medical progress is happening in front of our eyes
Complex VR simulations help medical professionals learn effectively in a safe environment. They can also support patients during the medical procedures or convalescence process.
In pharmacy, you can visualize complicated chemical reactions or complex molecule structures.

Use the potential of VR in medicine and pharmacy
Virtual reality and augmented reality allow researchers to catalog and visualize all their data, taking the parts they need and making progress at a far more accelerated rate than previously possible.
With the help of VR, they can improve the effectiveness of drugs that are being developed as well as visualize the interaction between molecules. By better understanding the latter they can re-engineer and redesign the molecules. VR is also perfect for studying human anatomy on real-life models.
Virtual reality provides incomparably more than just accurate anatomical models of the human body. When performing a variety of treatments or surgeries, doctors get information on how the patient’s body reacts and they can see how the life parameters are changing.
These intricate and complex simulations are created with the participation of numerous experts in their fields. Although most of them (simulators) are used in university hospitals, some of them have already been allocated to commercial sales.
Take the best of VR technology
Virtual reality, among other implementations, is currently used in the treatment of diseases such as vision defects, anxiety and phobias, ataxia, and in broadly understood rehabilitation. However, there are far more applications of this technology.
VR applications are also used in other areas not necessarily related directly to medical procedures. For example, applications of virtual reality in supporting the elderly in therapy or small children during their stay in hospitals deserve a lot of attention.
Benefits of using virtual reality for Medicine
- The VR applications are designed precisely to let trainees make mistakes while training. This translates into high effectiveness of such learning.
- Chronic patients often experience the discomfort of being partially left to their own devices in between the procedures. VR & AR can make their experience a little bit less uncomfortable and probably more exciting.
- 3D anatomical models in VR and AR help students learn about the human body in depth.
- Most VR applications fall under the realm of education and improving the competencies of future doctors and nurses. These technologies can also be used in their daily work.
- Rehabilitation using VR technology is more pleasant for a patient and the latest applications are extremely immersive and motivating.
What about Augmented Reality in medicine?
Augmented reality is also a tool supporting the performance of medical procedures. Imagine this: a doctor performing surgery has a college of doctors from other fields watching a live stream of the procedure. He asks them for advice which they can give for example in the form of holograms!
VR Stroke Rehabilitation
Thanks to the VR Stroke Rehabilitation app, stroke patients can practice their daily activities through gamification.
The more active they are, the better it is for their health (heart and blood vessels). Patients can play at home and a physical therapist can plan activities and check results online.
We invite you to see the VR Stroke Rehabilitation project.
Experience a smooth collaboration with our simple process
Business Analysis & Consultation
Over the years, 4Experience has developed a methodology for cooperation with clients, which is adapted to individual projects depending on the company’s needs. We begin with business analysis to thoroughly understand the concept & objectives of the project. Once we do that, we share our thoughts and experience with you. Together we’ll shape your idea into something incredible!
Prototype & Validation
We will map the flow of the app and build the prototype with key aspects to validate the concept with end-users and investors.
Using Agile methodology we release each piece of the app incrementally. We will test it and make improvements based on your suggestions. Our goal is to deliver the best quality possible. Every application made by 4Experience’s team is carefully tested on each stage of development by an experienced QA tester. As a result, we can assure you that our applications meet the highest quality standards.
Opinion on virtual reality for medicine
Whenever I talk with clients about VR/ AR technology for the medical industry, similar questions arise. Below are the answers to two of them.
Which goggles work best in medical applications?
Depending on the use purpose of the project and required VR/AR application functionalities, you can currently use goggles from several different manufacturers.
In fact, at the stage of formulating the scope of the project, including defining the needs, the right choice of hardware platform should be made. Most manufacturers provide equipment that is reliable but not all meets the appropriate standards and parameters.
How long does the implementation of the VR/AR application take?
The preparation time of a VR/AR application depends on several factors which include the size of the virtual space, graphics quality and scope of integration with other software. Usually, preparation and implementation take at least 2-3 months (for medium-sized projects).
In my opinion, both technologies will be widely applied in medicine in the near future. Augmented reality will have a wide range of applications supporting the performance of procedures or surgeries, and virtual reality will improve training for young medical students.
