Medical First Responders Mixed Reality - Advanced Virtual Simulation and Training

MED1stMR develops innovative mixed reality training technology to combine real-world medical simulators with virtual environments to train medical first responders for their challenges.
Increasing probabilities for natural disasters due to climate change, human-made accidents and terrorist threats require the development of innovative technological solutions adapted and implemented to the (cross-sectoral) needs of first responders. For this purpose, the project will develop a new technological solution to better prepare MFRs for a variety of disaster situations.
