Virtual training system for military doctors

Fighting injuries on the battlefield is not easy, as a field physician usually can not count on anybody to help and must quickly deal with countless wounds while saving the lives of his friends. So a simulator was created, which, thanks to virtual reality, will make it much easier to prepare doctors for such situations.

UCLA researchers have devised the first virtual simulator, which shows doctors in detail what they can expect when patching wounds on the battlefield. The new technology takes into account fluid dynamics as well as the mechanics of bones and bodies, simulating blood flow as it does in a real person.

The system is not yet fully functional yet. Scientists have been able to replicate only the leg until now, but they will ensure that they will be able to reproduce the rest of the organism in the future so that military physicians can train on it, thus gaining the necessary experience.
