Take a look at our anatomy scanner in action at the Sheffield Millennium Gallery:
Our project featured in a 5 minute article on Channel 4 News on 27th July 2016. Their presenter and camera crew visited the Lab4Living Experimental Space at Sheffield Hallam University and spoke to VR system developer Ivan Phelan about the project. They filmed Kevin Evison using the system and discussed his experiences. This is great exposure for our project and for raising awareness of the usage of cutting edge technology to aide amputees.
Watch Steve as he demonstrates the amazing ‘augmented reality’ educational app he has been developing using Leap Motion technology, to help people learn the bones and muscles of the arm.
Local students from UTC Sheffield joined visiting students from Slotshaven Gymnasium, Holbæk, Denmark in an exploration of the VR Prosthetics project, taking part in activities simulating disabilities, designing prosthetic solutions and getting hands-on experience with the VR system developed at Sheffield Hallam University. I created this video to document and celebrate the day.
Team member Kevin Everson piloted the VR environment in the project that the Virtual Reality Prosthetics was developed upon. You can read more about this in The Project.
