Spotlight XR Safety Awareness Week 2020

Roundtable discussion with Dr. Nduka, Dr. Greenleaf, and Rachel Michelson

Immersive technology in healthcare is gaining recognition for its potential to improve clinical outcomes for patients.

Practical solutions are already becoming reality (pun intended) at multiple hospitals and research centers around the world.

Enthusiastic and knowledgeable visionaries lead the way, anticipating forthcoming challenges and removing obstacles.

We are delighted to air portions of a panel organized by Emteq with Dr. Walter Greenleaf and Dr. Charles Nduka, who each lead research, create practical solutions, and above all, advocate for immersive tech as a way for the quality of life for patients.

They are joined by Rachel Michelson, the XR Safety Initiative Medical XR Council Lead, who advocates for streamlining safety, cybersecurity, and privacy best practices for these emerging technologies.
