Healthcare and Immersion: Transforming Medical Procedures


The growing prevalence of functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorders and the pursuit of improved patient safety and efficiency in medical procedures have been driving technological innovation and the adoption of new technology in the GI medical field. In the US alone, more than 20 million GI endoscopies are performed yearly, and globally, the estimated market for endoscopy procedures is expected to reach 249.5 million procedures by 2030.

Challenges Faced by Endoscopy Proceduralists

Modern endoscopy procedure rooms often pose significant challenges:

  • Space Constraints: The small size of procedure rooms, coupled with the high-tech medical equipment, creates a line-of-sight issue, making it difficult for proceduralists and assistants to view essential visual data displayed on fixed monitors.
  • Costly Space Adjustments: Expanding rooms or rearranging equipment before each procedure to optimize the medical equipment for different users and procedures is costly and inefficient.
  • Safety and Efficiency: With the increasing demand for GI procedures, improving safety and optimizing clinicians’ time have become paramount to reduce longer projected wait times and save lives more efficiently.

How Reality8 Addresses the Problem

Reality8 has harnessed the power of Mixed Reality (MR) technology to address the challenges encountered in procedure spaces and enhance live data streams during endoscopy procedures:

  • Voice Commands: Proceduralists use voice commands to manipulate virtual screens displaying live endoscopy feeds and other diagnostic and monitoring data. These virtual screens remain unobstructed by other staff or equipment in the procedure room, addressing safety concerns.
  • Efficient Reporting: Proceduralists can issue minimal voice commands to generate customized procedure reports that include photos and videos taken during the procedure. This significantly reduces post-procedure administrative and documentation work.


Reality8’s AR/MR solutions have emerged as a vital asset in the healthcare industry, particularly in the field of GI endoscopy. The University of Miami Gordon Center for Simulation and Innovation in Medical Education’s success story demonstrates the remarkable benefits of integrating our technology into medical procedures. If you’re seeking to improve efficiency, safety, and productivity in your healthcare practices, Reality8 is your trusted partner.
