March 17, 2022 – Arvizio, a provider of augmented and mixed reality (AR/MR) for the enterprise, has this week announced a suite of capabilities for its augmented reality workflow automation for medical organizations, healthcare workers and technicians to use in equipment training, operation, and maintenance.
The company’s AR Instructor solution leverages AR to visually guide and upskill workers through complex task-oriented workflows with digital overlays of associated 3D objects, images, documentation, and animated mark-ups. Furthermore, AR Instructor can connect frontline medical staff with a remote expert who is able to see what the on-site worker sees and provide real-time guidance and AR annotations for problem resolution and/or work validation.
The proficiency of medical personnel and other healthcare professionals is critical to the efficiency and effectiveness of patient care where errors can have significant consequences. Arvizio stated that by using AR Instructor, medical personnel and technicians can independently train in the set-up, operation, and maintenance of medical equipment guided by overlayed instructions and augmented with 3D digital twins, videos, documentation, and mark-ups to help reduce the risk of human error. Additional assistance is available by connecting with a remote expert who, through see what I see video, can provide real-time guidance and validate task performance.
Arvizio’s AR Instructor helps to increase the availability and efficiency of medical training, without the need to increase staff, and enhances performance and productivity while operational maintenance and repair activities are executed with greater accuracy, according to the company.

The ability to combine 3D models, interactive annotations with on-demand remote expert collaboration provides a state-of-the-art solution for medical technology training and maintenance.”
Arvizio added that the emergence of 5G networks will help to further enable the successful implementation of its AR Instructor training in the healthcare field. The platform’s flexible bandwidth allocation and ultra-low latency provides rapid loading of 3D content and media assets and ubiquitous connectivity.
