Virtual reality at the heart of the Jacques Cartier Talks

13 December 2016

The use of virtual reality and digital technology in rehabilitation and social integration is a booming field of research. This area can include elements of healthcare training through the development of, in particular, clinical cases, allowing safety issues involved in initial patient operations to be resolved.

SimforHealth, the creator of digital simulation tools for healthcare professionals’ training, commits to protecting patient ethics through the development of innovative digital solutions.

Within the context of the Entretiens Jacques-Cartier, the Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Rehabilitation and Social Integration (CIRRIS), in collaboration with its French partners, is organizing a symposium on the themes of mobility, cognitive neurosciences and motor rehabilitation.

The SimforHealth teams will be accompanied by 15 Quebecois and French researchers to discuss the benefits of virtual reality in healthcare, and will present the virtual clinical cases of strokes created with Prof. Patrick Dehail and the Université de Bordeaux.

This conference, which is organized by the Université de Laval, is also a great chance to strengthen links between France and Quebec regarding digital healthcare simulation projects.
