Using Virtual Reality, it is possible to train correct first aid procedures. Currently, expensive dolls are being used to perform these exercises. While these dolls provide adequate feedback (eg breathing, pressure resistance, …), they are not realistic.
VR can be combined with a less expensive doll to provide a so called Mixed Reality solution (MR). VR will add a layer of realism by showing a real 3D figure instead of a doll, which can be useful to acclimatise students to the emergency situation (blood, grave injuries, …). The inexpensive doll can still provide a minimum of feedback, resulting in a more realistic experience for the student.
Using VR, trainers are also able to check progress of the student, as the 3D environment will accurately track the actions of each student. Additionally, trainers are able to adjust the scenarios in which the students are put, to enhance the learning experience.
