St Georges UNIVERSITY Hospital, Paramedic training department - London 

St Georges University Hospitals Interactive training environment: St Georges are dedicated to developing exceptional healthcare professionals who meet today’s needs and tomorrow’s challenges. During a recent redevelopment, the paramedic department wanted to increase the fidelity and realism of their training by creating a dedicated immersive room. We helped them to create a realistic and interactive training environment within the School of Paramedic Training.

THE CHALLENGE

  • Increase student engagement
  • Simulate challenging and difficult to get to environments
  • Create a range of multi-sensory environments within the one flexible space
  • Use interactive elements to enhance the training experience
 


OUR SOLUTION

  • Created a large high impact immersive space that incorporated powerful visuals, sounds and lights
  • Used the latest tracking technology, powered by our own software, to enable any part of the space to become a ‘hotspot’
  • Supplied a 360 camera and sound recording equipment to allow the faculty to capture their own footage in different environments
  • Supplied our own software which enables the instructors to piece together their own scenarios from 360 camera footage, images, 3rd-party apps and much more 
  • We added a powerful smoke machine to fill the space with smoke in under 10 seconds; an
    extractor fan can clear the space in under 1 minute

 

Features

 Installed 16m super bright colour changing LEDs, powerful amp & flush ceiling mounted speakers

Utilised ultra short throw, low offset projectors to create large images and increase the
sense of presence
 

Created a 4x4m 3-side space with projected floor - all surfaces respond accurately to gesture and touch

 All hardware controlled through an iPad mini and powered by a high-spec i7 custom-built PC

 


The Results - Feedback from our clients

"A dedicated and fully-immersive space has transformed an old and underutilised area of the department. The Immersive Interactive installation team worked with the construction firm over the summer to
ensure the equipment was properly installed and that the room was prepared to give the
best possible effect, even down to the wall colour and flooring material." 
 
"The PC controlling all the hardware and running the Immersive software is hidden discreetly inside a cabinet at
the back of the room, meaning that the space is clear for the training to take place
unencumbered."

Before ...

... and after


The end result is an engaging and flexible space which is used to rehearse
anything from nightclub incidents to intra-hospital transfers.
