Episode 14: Show Notes.
Globally, almost five billion people do not have access to surgical healthcare today. This is a significant problem and one that can only be solved by improving training for medical practitioners. Talking to us about his solution to this issue, is Professor George Papagiannakis, founder, CEO, and CTO of ORamaVR. This company offers an IT software platform called MAGES™ SDK that empowers medical professionals and companies to create their own VR simulations. Join us to hear what MAGES stands for, why clinical trials are so important on product quality control, and why George believes that linking research fields is the key to solving the world’s problems. We also address the issue of patient-specific problems, and how MAGES incorporates a solution. Tune in to find out George's secret master plan (the low-code solution) and so much more.
Key Points From This Episode:
“Maybe there's another way, maybe we need better offering tools, and maybe the problem of medical VR is not a matter of content. Maybe in general, VR is not a matter of content, but is a matter of tools, and how these tools are being used to create the content that is needed.” — @gpapagian76 [0:06:35]
“Simulation-based training was used in medicine for hundreds of years. There's no question about that. The question is, can VR do it better, faster, and lower cost? That's what we are trying to prove.” — @gpapagian76 [0:14:13]
“In academia, we're very good at answering questions and finding some answers. But you need, really, the innovation part and startup universe to make the science a product.” — @gpapagian76 [0:27:05]
