Lifesaver VR

 

Lifesaver VR is an immersive live-action virtual reality (VR) training tool which puts the user into the heart of the action as three young people are faced with a life-or-death situation. By controlling their movements, users make crucial decisions and learn essential CPR life-saving skills. This was created by the Resuscitation Council (UK), a professional body set up in 1983 with primary objective of promoting high-quality, scientific, resuscitation guidelines that are applicable to everybody and to contribute to saving lives through education, training, research and collaboration. 

This case study is part of the research paper: “Immersive technologies & digital games for school disaster preparedness.” Find out more on the topic page (link below).
