Kom med den 27. oktober, hvor SUNDidé vil introducere jer til en ny verden af muligheder med Virtual Reality, som blandt andet involverer nye behandlingsmuligheder i psykiatrien og nye træningsmuligheder for sundhedsfagligt personale.
Vi har inviteret 3 speakers til at komme og fortælle om deres erfaringer med Virtual Reality, og hvordan Virtual Reality teknologien kan bruges i sundhedssektoren.

Virtual Reality giver mulighed for at udforske og interagere i opstillede miljøer, hvilket gør det muligt at teste, simulere og øve et utal af situationer i arbejdet med sundhed og sygdom.

The 27th of October, SUNDidé got the opportunity to introduce the new Virtual Reality Universe.
You are invited to come and meet a range of speakers and presenters talking about their own experiences inside this emerging technology and be part of the researches that are taking place with focus on Virtual Reality and health care.

“Virtual Reality is a computer generated environment which can be explored and interacted with by a person. That person becomes part of this virtual world or is immersed within this environment and whilst there, is able to manipulate objects or perform a series of actions.”
