Augmented reality varies from virtual reality in two ways: users don't lose connection with reality, and information is delivered as quickly as feasible. These distinguishing characteristics allow AR to become a driving force in the future of medicine, both for healthcare providers and for patients.
In the case of medical practitioners, it may assist medical students better prepare for real-life surgeries while also allowing surgeons to improve their skills. Students at Case Western Reserve University are already utilising the Microsoft HoloLens to study anatomy through the HoloAnatomy app. Medical students can learn the subject without using real bodies by using this technology, which gives them access to detailed and precise, but virtual, models of the human anatomy.
Magic Leap, another promising startup, will bring its slightly distinct mixed reality headgear to healthcare. To extend its spatial computing technology to healthcare, Magic Leap has teamed with SyncThink for brain health, XRHealth for therapeutic platform development, and Brainlab, a German healthcare technology startup. Although no commercial goods have yet emerged from these collaborations, we may expect to see them in the healthcare industry in the near future.
In 2020, the global augmented reality industry was estimated to be worth USD 17.67 billion. From 2021 to 2028, it is predicted to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 43.8 percent.
