GigXR Continues Content Rollouts and Partnerships

GigXR Pursues Content Deployments and Partnerships | AR Post

GigXR creates and hosts some of the most mind-blowing educational experiences in what critics call “the mediverse.” Through partnerships with some of the world’s top educational institutions and the world’s most innovative technology companies, the company is helping bring medical education into the 21st century.

Catch up with GigXR

GigXR was founded three years ago specifically to support textbook publisher Pearson’s XR projects. By partnering with other creators to host a variety of content, the platform still feels like a kind of publishing house, but a bit more interesting. No offense, Pearson.

The last time AR Post caught up with GigXR was back in May when the company announced a partnership with ANIMA RES, a 3D medical animation company. The partnership added content from the Insight series by ANIMA RES to its library, which already hosted content from Pearson, Microsoft and medical universities like Cambridge and the University of Michigan.

Insight works much like a product configurator, but instead of changing the color of a virtual car, you increase the stroke volume of a holographic heart or decrease the respiratory rate of a holographic lung. Don’t worry, there’s also a new update of the ANIMA RES series, we’ll come to that. But first, let’s get back to a developing story from this summer.

The HoloScenarios mixed reality app

Last June, GigXR released mixed reality app HoloScenarios. For the first module, called HoloScenarios: Respiratory Module, the company partnered with the University of Cambridge and the Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This module sees trainees (from medical students to veteran healthcare providers) gathered around a virtual patient suffering from very real conditions like asthma, pneumonia or a pulmonary embolism.

“Giving instructors 360-degree preparation for clinical practice is an important step for GigXR that allows us to provide our customers with a library of apps that provide solutions for students, from their first class to continuing education,” company founder David King Lassman said in a statement shared with AR Post.

Trainees must then not only diagnose the condition, but interact with holographic medical tools to stabilize their virtual patient.

“With HoloScenarios, we are helping to move education from a mentorship-based model to one where students around the world can have equal access to high-level expertise to master invention-based clinical skills. “, Cambridge University Health Partnership’s director of postgraduate education, Arun Gupta, said in the statement.

Since then, an additional HoloScenarios module, simulating basic life support, has been released in conjunction with a Northwest Permanente PC subsidiary, Morlen Health. In partnership with the same institution, GigXR will launch, early next year, HoloScenarios: Advanced Cardiac Life Support module, as well as HoloScenarios: Neurology module, created in collaboration with Michigan Medicine.

Additionally, at the time of writing, HoloScenarios has been named one of the top 200 inventions of 2022 by TIME.

Insight series available worldwide

In November, GigXR announced a massive expansion in the availability of the Insight series, accessible via mixed reality headsets or Android or iOS mobile phones or tablets. The modules are now available to “medical schools, nursing schools, healthcare providers, and government and defense agencies around the world,” according to a statement shared with AR Post.

“Partnering with GigXR gives us the springboard to expand our geographic reach to match GigXR’s global footprint and put our market-leading content in the hands of educators and learners around the world,” ANIMA RES CEO Pablo Olmos said in the statement. “Together, we aim to give learners the best tools to succeed throughout education and clinical practice.”

Anatomy and physiology inside and out

These announcements are both exciting, but become even more interesting discussed together. The ANIMA RES Insight Series helps familiarize with inner bodily conditions that can cause the external symptoms that trainees encounter and resolve in HoloScenarios. GigXR offers these and other modules in a neat package.
