Medical and dental device companies who can incorporate VR/AR into marketing tools, presentations and trade show exhibits will provide their clients and potential customers with a cutting edge experience that can help to differentiate from the competition, creates excitement and takes advantage of the more immersive learning experience associated with AR/VR.

Use of 2D animations has traditionally been the marketing tool of choice by most medical device firms, but larger industry players such as Medtronic have begun to incorporate AR/VR demos into tradeshows and device marketing.

VR is growing in use and acceptance as a training tool for many allied health professionals but most especially surgeons and those performing invasive procedures. It is inevitable that the surgeons and medical professionals who trained on AR/VR platforms will begin to bring this technology and benefits to their clients for educational and marketing purposes in order to increase comfort and compliance with elective or emergent procedures and to better understand post-op home recovery protocols.

“And while the field of virtual reality has remained mainly in academic medicine, there are promising applications in other areas of health care. One such avenue: Showing patients exactly the steps of a surgery or procedure and what happens afterward, to ease confusion and concerns of patients.”
