Nowadays there are huge possibilities in the area of health care. Because of the way technology has taken over everything you can not be judgmental that what will be the next. Just think what would have happened if COVID-19 came 10 years ago? Half of the human race would have ended.
I am sorry if I scared you, but trust me I am here for the contrary purpose rather than scare you.
Let me tell you one thing about our healthcare system: It works slowly. What if it combines with Metaverse, Virtual reality, augmented reality, and the Internet of medical devices. It will flow like a flooded river (As in progress).
Before jumping into the Metaverse development of healthcare you first need to understand what is metaverse? Let me tell you in brief that Metaverse basically is a world where you can do any augmented activities but being virtual. Woah! That is stretching your mind, right? But it is what it is.
You can meet anyone in this metaverse and you can perform any activities you want, virtually. I know that is amazing but with this fact, you will be thinking that all of our injuries and everything related to healthcare, how can be transformed into the metaverse?
This article is exactly for your last question. That is how the metaverse is going to help in the Healthcare sector. So let’s find it out together.
There are several sectors where healthcare in the metaverse is being used.
Virtual reality in medical training
Training is one of the most important things in the medical field. The well-educated and well-versed doctors train their fellow junior doctors with technology. This requires at least 3 people. A body on which the experiment is being done, A trainer and a trainee.
What if there is a technology that can provide a 360-degree view and a guiding tour of the body to the doctor who is learning. So the doctor who is giving the training and a dead body can rest. It sounds funny but many hospitals and training institutions have already applied it.
Also, an update to this technology could be the addition of the metaverse. With that not only the tour is possible but the actual operation learning could be done. You found this metaverse astonishing huh? Wait there’s more to come.
How can we use augmented reality in surgical procedures
Surgical procedures are the most crucial thing in the world of medical and health care science. That’s why turning to technologies for it can be a better option to reduce any kind of life loss.
As of now, there are several medical care facilities using robotics in Surgical procedures. But complicated services need augmented reality (AR) being used. Doctors are really in need of precision for complicated Spinal surgeries as well as cancerous tumors.
This is one of those things which we say “You Know If You Know”. Telemedicine- The provision of medicine in health care with remote service. It was very popular during COVID-19 and actually, the fact is that before 2020 only 43% of healthcare facilities are nowadays able to provide remote treatments to their patients.
And the numbers today tell that 95% of medical care facilities have been using telemedicine. Doctors and nurses have told that they don’t need their physical presence with patients while examining some minor issues, They can do this by telephone or on a video call.
So how would the metaverse be useful in this?
As doctors can cure their patients on a call, the metaverse can be used to examine some of the major problems by being present virtually with the patient. Let’s say for instance that you are in the UK and the specialist you want is in India. So with the help of metaverse developer from Metaverse development company, you as a patient can also be there with your specialist.
You don’t need to worry about your tests, Tests can be taken from your nearest laboratory, and the data you can transfer to your specialist.
How the metaverse will be useful in therapies?
Therapy is a whole different area of Medical care, where you must need physical attention as a patient or as a doctor. In aversion therapy, the metaverse is in already used by psychiatrists and psychologists.
Herewith the help of metaverse the patients can discuss their problems with their consultants in a safe and closely monitored environment.
Digital twins are a really great and next-generation idea, Jack Latus suggests that this digital twin can be the test dummies for an actual patient. The patient’s probability of life loss would be lesser than before with the help of Test dummies and the metaverse.
What are DIgital twins?
Digital twins are actually the twin of a person from a real-world to its real-world counterpart. In the case of the metaverse, the patient could be the digital twin.
We are just getting started on this metaverse development by top software companies, there is a lot to come along the way. But one thing is for sure that whatever comes in between it will give immense rise to every technological as well as the health care sector. You can just take a rest on your bed while your doctor is treating and consulting you in the metaverse, It’s amazing, isn’t it?
