LIFESAVER | LEARNING Using virtual reality to learn CPR
The challenge Studies show that if a bystander knows CPR in a medical emergency, chances for survival double. So we created Lifesaver: a crisis simulator that fuses interactivity with live-action film to teach crucial CPR skills and simulations on a desktop, smartphone or tablet.
We also created a VR version of the experience for even more immersive learning. Lifesaver VR delivers results. In tests with a selection of schoolchildren, teenagers’ confidence in performing CPR increased from 38% to 85%. And all those tested said they were more likely or MUCH more likely to perform CPR in a real emergency.
