Project description

In ViTAWiN, an interdisciplinary consortium is developing, testing, and evaluating a multi-user virtual reality (VR)/augmented reality (AR) simulation environment. The project addresses the educational needs of instructors and learners in emergency paramedic training and continuing education in emergency nursing.

The use of VR in conjunction with the use of simulation mannequins enables the visual representation of a variety of leading symptoms in variant scenarios. As a result, the emergency situation is practiced even more realistically than in classic emergency training, professional action skills are professionalized and team communication is improved – even in complex decision-making situations.

The ViTAWiN project is based on a VR training environment for emergency paramedic training already developed in the EPICSAVE project.
