Hand Hygiene Training

Proper hand hygiene is considered the single most important method of preventing and controlling infection in healthcare facilities. Based on WHO:s 5 moments for Hand Hygiene, our training solution enables you and your staff to train and improve on each of these critical moments – in virtual reality.

Virtual reality for deeper learning

Virtual reality for deeper learning
Virtual reality not only makes training fun and engaging, it is also highly effective in driving behavioral change. According to research , people only remember 10% of what we read, 20% of what we hear and 30% of what we see. However, when doing or simulating an action, we remember as much as 90%.
