We created ECU's School of Medical and Health Sciences first VR simulation to improve the ability of their paramedical and nursing students to de-escalate aggressive individuals within a hospital environment.



We carried out workshops with the School's Simulation Centre staff, which educated them about the unique benefits of VR for training within dynamic high consequence environments. This process enabled ECU to contextualize the technology to their specific training needs.


Working in collaboration with ECU, we designed a training environment representative of a typical hospital emergency department reception. The design phase also involved an iterative process to define the simulation content to suit the specific training outcomes sought.


Our development process for this project included engaging trained actors and using both face and body motion capture equipment to add a high level of realism to the training experience.
