Augmented reality - United-Digitals


AR combines two words, “augmented” meaning enhanced or increased and “reality”, simply meaning enhanced reality.

AR is building upon the real, physical world around us by displaying information overlays and digital content tied to physical objects and modified or customised by a user’s location or time. By using hardware or tools such as smartphones or tablets, patients and HCPs can discover beneficial details in the form of visual data imagery that are not visible to us normally. Smartphones and tablets become a window to Augmented Reality. AR uses the following markers: printouts or images, three-dimensional objects, environmental scenery, and content formats: still images, texts, PDFs, flat videos, animations, VR 360 degree videos, 3D models, Web links and interactive forms and surveys. AR provides the following benefits when use in healthcare: it intrigues the users, influences their imagination, enriches messages, allows for fitment of more information in less space, uses multimedia to communicate and educate more efficiently.
