How Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality are Creating Additional Value and Decreasing Costs in Medical Device Development, Manufacturing and Services

In the past years, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) have seen tre­men­dous growth. The tech­ni­cal pos­si­bi­li­ties in dif­fe­rent mar­kets are increa­sing and the use of AR and VR goes far bey­ond the bounda­ries of the enter­tain­ment indus­try. AR and VR are making waves in other mar­kets, such as In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) and Life Sciences. This bre­akth­rough tech­no­lo­gy has the poten­ti­al to trans­form the medi­cal device indus­try with enor­mous bene­fits to end users.

Major Excitement at AACC 2018 BIT Booth

The idea to form an AR/VR team wit­hin BIT’s inno­va­ti­ve soft­ware group was star­ted in ear­ly 2017 with a strong focus to grow fast and to be ahead of the medi­cal device mar­ket. After ear­ly stra­te­gy deve­lop­ment wit­hin the Group, the pro­ject was kicked-off in late 2017. The goal was to deve­lop one AR and one VR app­li­ca­ti­on tar­ge­ted for pre­sen­ta­ti­on at the 2018 American Association of Clinical Chemistry (AACC) show in Chicago, (IL) in July 2018.

At the show BIT dis­play­ed its abi­li­ty to use exis­ting plat­form mate­ri­als and paten­ted tech­no­lo­gies to crea­te a ful­ly capa­ble instru­ment, fil­ling the deve­lop­ment and manu­fac­tu­ring needs of its cli­ents.

Nonetheless the main focus was to pre­sent the­se exci­ting bre­akth­rough AR and VR tech­no­lo­gies, which offer inno­va­ti­ve, real-time, remo­te exper­ti­se for impro­ved decisi­on-making from design to sys­tem main­ten­an­ce.
