Born To Be Alive VR Helps with Childbirth Preparation
Born ToBeAlive It is a 3D simulation tool that helps expectant mothers prepare for the day of delivery. a virtual world where they answer all questions that may arise when that time comes is recreated. And for this, you will plunge into a stage where he will interact through an avatar.
This solution has been designed by the Paris Descartes University, Dassault Systèmes and 3Dexperience Company, in addition to the collaboration of medical laboratory teaching college fracesa iLumens.
BornToBeAlive offers a realistic 3D experience for parents to familiarize themselves with the maternity ward and the delivery room, with the aim of better understanding of the machines and processes, how they work and how to be prepared for that day. Expectant mothers virtually perform the actions required during labor, and at each step interactive explanations will be offered to enrich their knowledge and reduce anxiety, shows them what awaits them that day.
BornToBeAlive includes an integrated healthcare professionals community where they can share, discuss and ask questions about labor community.
Each year, more than 75 million births occur worldwide. Although childbirth is a happy event, you can wake up many questions and stress for expectant mothers. To answer these questions, along with the 3D simulation is available a community platform where doctors and midwives resolve the doubts.
“Thanks to the 3D simulation, it is possible to see what we could not see before and an interactive experience” said Frédéric Vacher, director of strategic marketing at Dassault Systèmes. “People are immersed in the scene, and make repeated gestures, and may be better prepared to reality.
BornToBeAlive 3D experience is available in English and French and is the second in a series initiated by Staying Alive, a 3D experience aimed at improving awareness and provide first aid training.
This project, sponsored by GE Healthcare Group, Ferring Laboratories, Teleflex and the Paris Descartes Foundation; has been presented at the congress of the National College of gynecologists and obstetricians French (CNGOF), which provided scientific support in collaboration with the Perinatal Medical Society (SFMP). BornToBeAlive has also received support from PremUp Foundation.
Transforming the Learning Dynamics
Born To Be Alive is a realistic, interactive, educational serious game aimed at the largest possible audience which allows you to test your knowledge of different topics such as pregnancy, labor, postpartum care and much more by taking you through a variety of storyline scenarios.
3D modeling and simulation have, for several decades, enabled companies to create, optimize and manufacture their products with a physical representation that matches reality. Meanwhile, the global video game market has proved, within massive multi-player online environments, the advantages provided by scripts and artistic representations of imaginary virtual worlds. By bringing these two concepts together on a Cloud collaborative platform, developing new innovative 3D uses and publishing global 3D experiences on different terminals has never been easier.
That’s how Dassault Systems came to re-inject physically-exact 3D simulations, which used to be limited to professional users, into experiences made for a much larger audience, accessible from web browser or tablets. 3D Experiences, also known as Serious Games, open the world to new uses, such as communication and experiential marketing, documentation, training and education.
Learning by doing in a virtual world also provides a better retention of information. For instance, in the medical sector, living a 3D Experience as a virtual patient helps ones understand how to treat others more efficiently. The gamification of the situation also transforms the learning dynamics, promote team spirit and competition between users.
Digitalized medical equipment and 3D assets behave like their real-life versions. They provide relative-time learning experiences and leverage the abilities of an effective teacher. They do not replace the physical version but let an unlimited number of users play and replay actions, grow and perform in a hostile environment, act on a virtual patient, etc.
