First Aid in Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality, Education, Children,

Meetups are independent community gatherings organized by Techfestival co-creators. Open to curious minds of all ages and backgrounds. Make sure to RSVP to secure your spot!


How to utilise the immersive feeling of being present in Virtual Reality to save lives?

Børneliv, a NGO consisting of medical students and pediatricians, has brought new tech and education in lifesaving first aid together.

After facing difficulties with the classical educational approach in terms of awareness and planting memories of vital information, Børneliv decided to try new methods.

In collaboration with scientist, actors and production companies, three Virtual Reality-movies were made in the spring 2017. Each movie is rooted in situations where children gets severe hurt and an adult needs to act!

Experiencing these situations in virtual reality is powerful. In Collaboration with CAMES (Copenhagen Academy for Medical Education and Simulation) a research study is currently being made and being tested on aspiring teachers from Metropol, Copenhagen.

The initial test results is expected to arrive later this year!

What to expect
Come and hear the doctors present their work and approach, experience the VR-movies in a one-hour first-aid workshop with hands-on learning. Hopefully making the corresponding exercises on first-aid dolls dramatically more meaningful.

We will do two runs of 10 people per hour in order to give the best experience for the attendees.
First run: 17:30-18:30
Second run: 18:45 – 19:45 

* If many people sign up, we can adjust the duration, but our number of VR-headsets holds limitations  

E-mail with your preferred choice of ‘run’.
Looking forward to see you!
