Virtual Reality Game Gives Lessons About Emergency Birth Care
LIFE is a serious tool that takes advantage of new technology to help save lives
In Africa, one in ten children do not meet their fifth birthday. One of the leading reasons is the lack of quality healthcare available. After working in Kenya, Oxford professor Mike English figured out a new way to help alleviate this serious issue. He and his team created Life-saving Instruction For Emergencies (LIFE), a 3D and virtual reality game that creates real-life, stressful scenarios that 2.5 million healthcare workers might have to face. They hope that utilizing virtual reality will allow workers to learn faster and truly feel a sense of urgency.
