Being able to learn radiography techniques with access to your own personalized exam room rewrites the book on medical education.
Our true virtual reality experience provides the ultimate learning and teaching environment. No longer do you need to use decommissioned machines, resin body parts or play pretend. Our Virtual Reality Edition provides the most accurate exam rooms simulation available - without any of the dangers of radiation.
Desktop Edition delivers radiography simulation to a standard PC or Mac desktop/laptop computer for situations where VR hardware isn’t possible. Learners get anytime access, anywhere they have an internet connection, with all the same quality, realistic views and accuracy offered in our VR solution. The self-assessment modules are even more accessible via a tablet.
What’s more, if you have the VR Edition on campus and Desktop Edition at home you can start your learning in one place and seamlessly continue on the other.
From digital natives to the digitally challenged, accessing and using the range of simulations available in your personal account is simple and logical.
Our radiography solution provides the world's most technically accurate simulation of a radiographic machine, enabling students to practice procedures, their process and imaging without risk.
“We have been collaborating with Skilitics for three years now and it has been a real adventure in innovating our teaching and learning. The products are superb and have had a demonstrable effect in improving student performance in clinical practice. In addition the continuous support we have received especially during the pandemic has enhanced our VR training portfolio and this is something we will continue to capitalise on in the "new normal" teaching and learning environment. Skilitics have proved excellent partners for our teaching and learning needs.”
"We have utilised both the practice and self-assessment modes with our students and find that it provides a safe environment for them to learn radiographic technique independently, with staff support when needed. We have found the team from Skilitics wonderful to work with. They answer any questions rapidly and worked closely with our IT department to ensure we were up and running quickly"
“Our students have found the use of the software to be a positive learning experience. Skilitics Health's Radiography solution has ensured vital learning and experience is retained, particularly at a time when clinical placement time was restricted due to the COVID19 pandemic.”
“After discovering Skilitics I reached out to James Hayes and received an immediate response. I found the customer service to be superior and his domain knowledge, passion, and belief in the product and what it would bring to enhancing the training of future technologists sold me even more. I cannot express the customer service enough and how grateful the radiology program here is to the continued support of the team at Skilitics Health.”
“I was very excited to be integrating Skilitics software into our curriculum. The desktop version allows students to continue to apply theory into practice in their own homes, this enhanced accessibility to an x-ray room, means students can practice any time and not be restricted to campus x-ray room slots. Students have enjoyed using Skilitics software and combined with reflective practice shows promise in supporting their clinical practice. The onboarding process by the Skilitics team was smoothly delivered, allowing for plenty of questions and demonstrations ensuring staff felt comfortable to teach students using this pedagogical approach. The support has been excellent and swift despite different time zones!”
“What I really liked about it is that you can actually take an x-ray and see the image. This helps with evaluation criteria and provides you an idea of what it's like taking an x-ray and see how well you are positioning [the patient]. What I also really liked is that you have to set your own techniques and can practice this repeatedly - as a junior, I remember not being comfortable with techniques.”
“Skilitics Health’s Virtual Reality Edition has been an invaluable, radiographic procedural tool for our students. In their immersive VR world, student radiographers are able to position a patient, select technical factors, and create multiple images without the use of ionizing radiation. Incorporating Skilitics VR into our curriculum has facilitated increased procedural confidence in our students.”
Optional learner self-assessments designed to stimulate learning and discussion are available for most radiographic views. These modules ask a series of questions prior to assigning the learner a patient which they are required to X-Ray in their Desktop or VR simulation environment.
After completing the examination, students re-open the self-assessment module which resumes aware of the task completed. The module adapts to ask questions relevant to the learner's imaging technique and procedural actions.
This helps with procedural memory which aids learning through processes. It’s also a fun and effective way for the students to learn and Universities/Colleges report a dramatic increase in student uptake of VR simulation compared to other sorts due to the effectiveness of the learning.
Our virtual reality simulation enables students to visualize the skeleton through the skin. Before a student even makes the exposure they can look and feel for bony landmarks and see if they have positioned accurately.
For the ultimate experience, our simulation enables students to physically walk around the virtual exam room. If your environment doesn't have the available space, they can also teleport themselves around from a standing position.
Our virtual reality is a true hands-on learning experience with visual, audible and haptic feedback. This gives students the cross-over to real world cues they will to
Students are sent a detailed report providing a record of both the radiographs taken as well as with the configuration of the machine and environment.
The report covers console and machine settings in addition to radiation safety factors. This includes Dose Area Product (DAP) and Effective Dose per image, and total DAP and Effective Dose per examination.
