Nihon Kohden Launches Augmented Reality Electrophysiology Training App at HIMSS18

March 6, 2018 – Nihon Kohden announced the launch of the Nihon Kohden Dimensions Augmented Reality (AR) App to complement the Clinical Excellence Services offerings from Nihon Kohden University (NKU). NKU is an online global education and training platform designed to help healthcare providers build and sustain their technology expertise, optimize clinical practice and ensure quality patient care.
 
AR is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are "augmented" by computer-generated or extracted real-world sensory input such as sound, video, graphics, haptics or GPS data. AR can provide a cost and time-efficient approach for clinicians to treat patients, teach and train staff and react quickly in emergency situations.
 
The Nihon Kohden Dimensions app, which is being highlighted at the 2018 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society meeting (HIMSS18) booth (10925) March 5-8 in Las Vegas, was recently recognized as the AVA Digital Award 2018 Platinum Winner for Mobile App, the top honor in this category. AVA Digital Award is an international competition that recognizes excellence by creative professionals responsible for the planning, concept, direction, design and production of digital communications.
 
The app is currently designed to be used with Nihon Kohden’s Lead Placement and Arrhythmia Identification posters on the NKU website. Users aim their mobile device at the corresponding posters and the app launches the AR training experience, walking them through correct lead placement using Nihon Kohden’s three- and six-lead sets or teaching them how to identify common cardiac arrhythmias. The app is for use on iOS compatible devices (iPhone or iPad) only.
