TERP integrates augmented reality (AR) in abooks when delivering new technology to the ambulance service at Innlandet Hospital Trust (Sykehuset Innlandet) in Norway. The solution will support evidence-based practice. Innovation Norway contributes 2,2 million NOK in grants to the project.
The corona pandemic has created a great demand for distance learning solutions. TERP's primary market so far has been maritime education in Southeast Asia, where the company has provided adaptive textbooks. A key element in this education is practical exercises on a simulator, which conventional distance learning solutions can not replace. The solution TERP has come up with is to integrate augmented reality into the textbooks to run virtual simulations at home on the living room table.
When developing new technology, we are looking for innovative environments that are at the forefront of the use of new technology. We found this environment at Innlandet Hospital Trust. The health organization, which has 26 ambulance stations in Innlandet county, has a strong focus on evidence-based practice and has used virtual reality in employees' training for several years.
