Researchers at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery are expanding the uses of Virtual Reality in healthcare.

“We have scans of 20 homes in Wisconsin so you can walk through an actual 3D model of someone’s house in Wisconsin and kind of interact with them and see the different environments,” says researcher Cale Geffre.

These scans from a lab in Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery create a virtual reality that will help healthcare professionals learn how do home walkthroughs and warn patients of potential hazards in their homes.
