VOKA  team has every reason to be proud of Education version having reached its final stage. It was a long path paved with new challenges and discoveries. It will be not just another innovative e-learning tool or something old made new again. It has at its core a unique 3D anatomical atlas with 350 types of fractures. Thus, you will find an extensive database of all possible fractures and bone tissue injuries according to global trustworthy surgical references.

You may ask what it is so unique about just another bunch of medical data already available in the Internet. In contrast with other sources at hand, a medical trainee will have at his disposal a 3D model rather than a 2D image. 3D models are fully responsive meaning you can scale, rotate and turn them at whatever angle you find more pleasing for you to gain a more profound understanding of human anatomy. Apart from just studying anatomy, a young doctor can get a sure hand at positioning a model inside a mannequin. First, he watches all the manipulations performed by his tutor on his PC or mobile device and then tries to do the same. As additional bonus you hone your precision, accuracy and twist of the wrist. With patient’s mobility and your own good name at stake, this invention might be above all helpful to polish up your hands-on skills.

The team of our 3D designers used their sharp eye and a wealth of experience to add life-like textures to models so that they would be indistinguishable from real ones. No free-to-download software will generate you the same result. First impressions are the most lasting, therefore, the team’s focus was not only on true-to-life content but also on appealing and eye-catchy application interface. A cute skeleton will help you navigate through the whole body divided into 22 anatomical areas while icon buttons are very intuitive. So, no effort has been spared to avoid the content looking crude and rough-and-ready.

The main drivers of demand for Voka EDUCATION version are medical students, little experienced or junior surgeons as well as their education supervisors. There are countless studies having proved the power of visualization on information gain and attention mining. VOKA  mission is to get away from traditional 2D imagery and foam bones making learning more personal, practical, and technology driven.

Why VR/AR is so essential for Healthcare?

Who ever said VR was just about gaming, was completely wrong. It goes without saying that nowadays VR/AR/MR is revolutionary changing the face of Healthcare, well, it really is. How come it’s improving the medicine field? Simple as that. And it goes without saying that VR and MR go hand in hand being implemented in the ways that can help diagnose and treat even the most complicated diseases. 

Let us consider some fascinating VR possibilities:

Virtual diagnosis

Virtual reality is undoubtedly used for visual purposes when diagnosing patients. In a nutshell, conducting an array of medical tests does produce a whole a lot of data. And in this very case, VRcan be used in order to shape some kind of visual explanation of this data which is much easier to get into account and interpret, isn’t it?

Surgical training, it is. 

According to the statistics, MR has proven to be of great help in surgery where it has significantly contributed to training surgeons. In this very case, MR does facilitate the process of gaining crucially important experience when  operating in so called “safe environment”. Where we’re driving at is that with the help of MR surgeons are able to polish skills and certain techniques without endangering the lives of patients. What is more, it doesn’t only grant an opportunity for surgeons to refresh their dormant skills but also to try edgy techniques out! How outstanding is that?!
To sum it all up, suggesting a very real experience and great review of the anatomy, MR is gaining traction in Healthcare. And it actually makes sense. Just because VR and MR have enabled surgeons to provide care more efficiently and safely, the applications based on it  are oftentimes used in operating theaters and also successfully harnessed in telehealth conferences. And without any doubt it’s improving delivery of care when it comes to medical procedures of high risk. Taking everything into account, one can say that MR applications are becoming a picture-perfect match to the needs of surgeons and simply medical professionals. 

For a better insight have a look at our presentation about MR Assistant for Trauma Surgery:

Mixed Reality in medicine made simple

A few days ago, VOKA team held a training session on its MR medical system for our Marketing department. Everybody was enthusiastic about “seeing through” your patient’s skin experience. From now on they will all have a very special mission: to develop a campaign on revolutionizing medical education and surgery planning in the Republican Centre of Orthopedics and Traumatology. Before starting with quite an ambitious task VOKA team decided to find out how much time it would take for a person completely unfamiliar with HoloLens to learn the ropes.
First things first, our non-techies were given the system’s general overview and lectured on the software functionality. It was good news to hear that both surgeons knowing their art inside out and medical students or immature graduates will reap the benefits of the top-notch technology. Seasoned doctors will use Voka Standard version allowing to generate a 3D fracture model and position it onto the damage. Having it in place, a surgeon will fit bone fixators on it looking for a best one and mark incisions to access the fracture. Educational centers will find Voka Education a useful tool to teach anatomy and show the difference between 350 fracture types presented as a 3D anatomical atlas.

Listening to Voka Education explained, there was no need to “peek” into the project manager’s HoloLens, as everything was streamed onto the big screen. Being far from medicine, you could not help but remember and immerse into the medical content shown, as it was so visual and interactive. True miracle began with Voka Standard when you could make believe you were a surgeon about to cut open an injured leg. Everybody took a bone he liked and tried to scale it, rotate and move or joke around and let it hover over his friend's head. Voka team was delighted to see that 20 minutes was the longest time needed for the non-techies to grasp all the positioning techniques. In the end, no one left the class discouraged with app’s secret still locked away.
We literally fell in love with the company brainchild and do think the time has come for VOKA to reshape traditional education making it more visual and hands-on as well as give a helping hand to mature surgeons.

ARchitect-designer: Turning architecture ideas into 3D detailed models and estimating material costs is easy!

Innowise group is presenting ARchitect-designer, cloud service that lets users differentiate elements of private house front facades and architecture buildings on private lots. 

1. With the help of special easy-to-use graphical interface user designs terraces, pergolas, facades, roofing, fences, stairs and other architecture elements;
2. The system core lets get an exact material estimate and request the cost of works;
3. Mobile application gives an opportunity to see the designed architecture object shown around the client’s house.

Usually it takes a construction company manager or/and a designer from 10 to 12 hours to design, agree with a customer and estimate just one terrace. ARchitect-designer reduces this time by half, lower company costs on employees’ salaries, enhances the company’s performance and competitiveness significantly. 
Building materials distributors specify the data about the materials to be delivered and use this service as an advertising platform for building and construction companies’ target audience.
Using ARchitect-designer’s cloud service building materials manufacturers advertise their brands among its target audience, get access to the analytical data about the demand of these or those materials. 
End-clients use ARchitect-designer to make  their creative architecture ideas real, get detailed and exact estimates on services  and materials costs from independent consultants and building and construction companies and can see their intended buildings shown on the real spot before the construction had started. 
One can add one more category of users - freelance engineers and designers. On sharing economy basis ARchitect-designer gives end-clients an opportunity to get services on design and modeling.

Creation of a 3D construction model of any complexity
