NRC Interactive Simulations – Soaring to New Heights in Healthcare Delivery with Robert DiRaddo
From the training of the next generation of doctors and healthcare workers, to accelerating the development of new drugs and medical devices, and applying gaming technologies to health science innovations, interactive simulation technologies are playing an increasingly important role in helping the healthcare industry to proactively engage with healthcare professionals and patients.
The NRC has a proven track record in the development and deployment of simulation technologies and to this end offers customized research services including human-machine interactivity, agile software development and biomechanics testing in biosafety level 2 (BSL-2) laboratory.
In person over breakfast and by webinar, you will learn from Robert how interactive simulation allows users to interact with a virtual reality scene and can be used for:
• Personalized care: Engage users with interactive simulation methods, complementing end-to-end delivery of healthcare,
• Market penetration: Simulate new procedures to facilitate adoption of procedure-specific devices and pharmaceuticals, and
• Training: Facilitate adoption of multi-modal therapies, as a demonstrative bridge combining pharmacological and interventional therapies.
Robert DiRaddo currently leads the Simulation and Digital Health Group at NRC. During his time at NRC he has initiated and led large-scale initiatives in interactive simulation for a wide range of applications, such as surgical skills training, therapy for mental health and rehabilitation, flight training on unmanned aircrafts, design of automotive fuel tanks and design of food packaging.
