Virtual Cadaver Lab

Virtual Reality App Uses Oculus Rift to Create Virtual Cadaver Lab for Trainees (+Video)

Could a virtual reality headset someday replace traditional cadaver labs for medical students? Probably not – but a new app for the Oculus Rift could certainly help.
VR Human Anatomy, currently being tested by medical students at the University of Zurich in Switzerland, reportedly offers just that. Developed by a medical animation studio, Vedavi, this detailed virtual anatomy simulation has a tentative release date for the Oculus Rift later this year, after the Oculus Touch arrives. Using a touch controller rather than a traditional Xbox controller offers considerably more interactivity and ease to manipulate anatomic models for learning.
