Virtual Patient Modeling with the Pulse Physiology Engine

Immersive learning (VR) is more than just a new technology. It is a unique type of learning experience. Achieving the maximum learning benefit from immersive learning experiences requires a fundamental shift in approach - moving from the legacy focus of designing and implementing learning products for institutional needs, practices, and structures to a focus where the learner's experience is truly at the core and the learner's personalized instructional needs are the overarching guiding framework.

Among the myriad tools and processes used by inciteVR in developing immersive learning is the use of an embedded physiology engine framework to both leverage empathy and broaden the diversity of clinical practice experiences.

Kitware's Pulse Physiology Engine allows us to bring the 'story' of the virtual patient to life with real-world case data.
