Simulation is an established training tool for a number of different industries. The Virti assessment platform is validated through independent scientific research

Key Evidence

Military"Simulation reduces costs while increasing safety, visibility of event, and reproducibility of actions"
(Fletcher JD, et al. Science 2009)
Aviation"The use of simulators consistently produced improvements in pilot training for jets"
(Hays R, et al. Military Psychology 2009)
Medical Students"Medical students value simulation-based learning highly. In particular, they value the opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge in a safe and realistic setting, to develop teamwork skills and to develop a systematic approach to a problem"
(Weller JM, et al. Medical Education 2004)
Communication Skills"Immersive VR is an effective modality to teach communication skills to medical trainees"
(Real, Francis J. et al. Academic Pediatrics 2017)
CPR Training"Beneficial aspects of learning CPR in a virtual world have been confirmed."
(Creutzfeldt J, et al. JMIR Serious Games 2016)
Critical Thinking"Utlisation of VR interactivity into a nurse practotioner teaching curriculum resulted in outcomes that demonstarted a significant improvement in diagnostic reasoning and clinical decision-making."
(Burke, S. Journal of Pediatric Nursing: Nursing Care of Children and Families 2017)
Clinical Decision-Making"Virtual-reality technology is a viable platform for medical-simulation"
(Harrington, C. et al. The American Journal of Surgery 2018)
Reduce Costs and Improve Safety"VR can improve patient safety and reduce healthcare costs through the improvement of the medical provider’s competencies."
(Al-Elq AH. Journal of Family and Community Medicine. 2010)
Reduce Costs For Mandatory Training"VR simulation has been shown to reduce cost and improve safety in advanced life support training."
(Buttussi, F. et al. International Journal of Medical Informatics 2013)
Reduce Costs and Reduce Errors"The expected revenue, in terms of better patient care and prevention of error, provides a decisive argument for investing in VR development."
(Graafland, M. et al. The British Journal of Surgery. 2012)
Improved Performance"Higher levels of immersion produce a measurable improvement in the performance of an abstract mental activity."
(Bowman, D. at al. Teleoperators and Virtual Environments 2010)
Simulation In Health and Beyond"Simulation has established a central role in clinical education but usually focuses on learning to do things as they are already done. Imaginatively designed, simulation offers untapped potential for deep engagement with patients, publics and experts outside medicine.."
