Our Healthy Future have recently begun a new partnership with the UK based virtual reality and augmented reality start-up Curiscope (www.curiscope.com), and their fantastic product called the Virtuali-Tee!
The Virtuali-Tee is their flagship educational product and is an innovative t-shirt, tailored for school children, which allows the user to gain a better understanding of human anatomy and physiology through augmented reality. Our Healthy Future are proud to be acting as the medical advisors to Curiscope ensuring the scientific content is clinically valid and mapped to relevant educational outcomes.
Recently, Our Healthy Future represented the Curiscope Virtuali-Tee at the All About Stem Liverpool City Region Health Skills Show on the 28th of November 2017. During the event, over 1000 children attended with our healthcare professionals, including medical and dental students, providing children an opportunity to learn human anatomy and physiology like never before with the Virtuali-Tee.
Children and teachers loved the interactive experience provided through the Virtuali-Tee with positive comments from everyone including one describing the Virtuali-Tee as “boss” (true Liverpool scouse appreciation); even the Metropolitan Mayor had a go at using the Virtuali-Tee! Additionally, children and teachers enjoyed the inspiration our healthcare professionals provided in terms of encouraging children to pursue a career in healthcare and other STEM related subjects.
