How to contact Keith and get involved in the Medical VR community:

 

Keith’s first experience with VR was through the arcade version of  Dactyl Nightmare:

 https://youtu.be/v6t69mp0ZhE

 

Modern VR products such as the Oculus Rift are a much superior experience

Project CAR - Oculus Rift:

Keith describes the 5 use categories for Medical VR:

 

  1. VR as an adjunct to existing treatments - To improve pain and reduce anxiety during interventions
  2. VR as a form of therapy - e.g. to treat phobias, anxiety, mental health problems
  3. VR as a diagnostic tool - Eye tracking and assessing responses during simulations - e.g. eye tracking to diagnose Autistic Spectrum Disorders
  4. VR for education and training
    1. Medical Realities: https://www.medicalrealities.com
    2. Shafi Ahmed: @ShafiAhmed5
  5. VR expanding a patient's understanding - empathy - living in someone else's shoes. What's it like to have dementia.

Downsides and Risks of VR in medicine:

 

  • Nausea and sickness - patients may unable to tolerate VR
  • The intensity of experience not suitable for some
  • Minimum Age, perhaps as low as 7 yrs
  • Many application involve simulated violence - unsuitable for some
  • Infection control - equipment needs to be sterilised between users

 

Keith’s current projects:

  • PREVENT ICU Delirium - Psychological Resilience Using Virtual Reality Exposure as a Novel Therapy to reduce ICU Delirium

    • Does VR pre-experience of intensive care unit reduce incidence and severity of postoperative delirium - about to begin small-scale study.
  • “See What I See” - Kent and Surrey trial service
    • Use of “Expert Eye” based on Google Glass, to allow Doctors to remotely visit care homes. Carer wears smart glass and is provided with remote expert support by a GP.
