Using Augmented and Virtual Reality to Demystify Healthcare
The healthcare ecosystem has become increasingly complex, posing new challenges to medical professionals and their patients. ARDVRK was created on a vision to simplify the often-confusing and jargon-filled world of healthcare and life sciences.
Our purpose is transformational: With the use of amazingly lifelike human avatars, our platform uniquely engages physicians, HCPs, patients, and other caregivers to bring significant, potentially life-saving information into their field of vision. It delivers a unique and highly effective way for all stake holders to engage in better understanding, diseases and care delivery.
ARDVRK is working with biopharmaceutical and medical device companies as they make their foray into this emerging technology. As experienced healthcare and life science executives, we understand the complexities of the industry. Armed with firsthand knowledge, we’ve created a platform with multi-layered benefits.
In essence, we create powerful visual experiences that get to the heart of the matter in a way that is quickly and easily understood. Think of it as better health… visualized.

The Next Generation of Medical Simulation Technology
Since the advent of medical simulation technology, the toughest obstacle has been finding a way to accurately replicate complex medical and surgical skills. ARDVRK’s 3D augmented and virtual reality solutions tackle that challenge by taking simulation technology to the next level.
The roots of medical simulation can actually be traced to the aviation industry. Flight simulation has long been used to safely teach pilots how to fly planes. Pilots gain hands-on training and experience, without leaving the ground or facing the risk of crashing a plane.
The same approach translates perfectly to the medical field. Similar to flight simulation, ARDVRK’s AR/VR medical simulations allow physicians, HCPs, patients and other caregivers to become fully immersed and engaged in a realistic understanding of a disease, devices, procedures, or treatment. We’re all about enhancing the learning experience. For instance, our platform can bring a fully dimensional representation of a patient’s anatomy into a surgeon’s reach — like having a photo-realistic human avatar right there in the room.
Clearly, this visualization and experiential learning leads to a better understanding of healthcare and, ultimately, to better outcomes. This is the next generation of medical simulation technology — and it truly is eye-opening.
AUGMENTED REALITY (AR)
Augmented Reality depicts a physical, real-world environment whose elements are “augmented” by digital sensory input — such as sound, video, and animation. Unlike virtual reality, which creates a totally artificial environment, AR overlays new information and graphics into the existing environment by using the camera on your smartphone or tablet.
VIRTUAL REALITY (VR)
By wearing a special Virtual Reality headset, users are instantly immersed into vibrant and fully interactive environments that drastically increase the effectiveness of training and engaging content. ARDVRK works with all major VR headset providers — from the $1 Google Cardboard powered by your smart phone, to the PC-powered Oculus Rift.
