Research Institution

ArchieMD proposes to develop an augmented reality 3D training technology that can be combined with its existing MEDRILLS interactive training apps for mobile devices. MEDRILLS teach critical and high risk, low frequency medical procedures. The proposed enhanced MEDRILLS prototype can be used to develop, maintain, and improve operational readiness of Aerospace Medical Service specialists and other Air Force medical staff, with greater flexibility and at reduced cost. Users first practice a procedure through interfacing with a given MEDRILLS app and then translate what they’ve learned to a manikin/ live simulation with the guidance of the AR overlay demonstration. For this Phase I project, ArchieMD proposes to: 1) Conduct a feasibility study on applying AR 3D procedure demonstrations to existing MEDRILLs apps; 2) Develop prototype AR projection technology for overlaying demos to determine technical feasibility, and to assess risks and potential payoffs of our approach. In Phase II, proof of concept will be established through a prototype demonstration, usability testing and pilot evaluation. In addition to military application, the resulting AR training platform can be integrated into civilian medical first responders training opportunities, including a subset of already commercialized non-enhanced MEDRILLS apps accredited for continuing medical education credits.
