VR & AR helpful for treating severe illness

Khora will also take the stage at the MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM. The Danish start-up has worked in collaboration with Rigshospitalet, for example, on an augmented reality universe for children and young people aged 10 to 14 who have to spend considerable time in hospitals with cancer or leukemia. It is intended to make daily life easier for them. Khora created “Snail Battle” which allows persons affected to use plants to fight evil monster snails. During the MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM, CEO Simon Lajboschitz will also explain how virtual reality can help schizophrenia patients with auditory hallucinations. From attention deficit disorder to developing and testing medical devices using virtual patients and simulation, a wide variety of other metaverse opportunities will be addressed on November 16.

Political framework

What the near future of digitization in Germany will look like is also determined by government policies. Dr. Susanne Ozegowski, head of the “Digitization and Innovation” department at the German Federal Ministry of Health, will explain her institution's digitization strategy. The possibilities of digital applications for health (DiGA) and for care (DiPA) will offer many inspirations for talks on November 16 at 3:00 pm.

A variety of topics at the MEDICA START-UP PARK

Thericon and KuartisMED are among the companies participating in the MEDICA START-UP PARK. The shared booth (also located in Hall 12) has established itself over the years as a central meeting point for business and networking with the young founders' scene, and this year will have about 40 participants. German start-up Thereon see itself as the first company to bring imaging compiled from several different sources into the operating room as a visual aid. The display of previously invisible tissue features is shown on a single screen along with standard color images. This diagnostic information and its intuitive display are expected to enable faster and more accurate surgical outcomes. Exactly how this works will be explained at MEDICA START-UP PARK. Turkish company KuartisMED concentrates on innovative solutions for the wellbeing of newborns. Since infants born before 34 weeks of pregnancy have inadequate coordination of the sucking and swallowing reflex, they depend on feeding tubes for nutrition. The non-invasive medical device by KuartisMED aims to help with evaluating the maturity of these reflexes in the future.
