VR Surgery Videos Offer Interactive Medical Education
Dutch startup MDLinking hopes to globalize communication between students and medical care professionals with virtual reality content
Launched in May 2016, MDLinking sought to connect eight and a half million doctors around the world, each sharing their own individual expertise and background with one another. Inspired by the mobile messaging app WhatsApp, as well as the business-oriented social media site LinkedIn, MDLinking allows health care professionals to discuss clinical cases in a secure, encrypted environment. After a successful app launch, MDLinking hopes to further accentuate its knowledge sharing platform by featuring a catalogue of hands-on, virtual reality teaching videos.
