Alder Hey Children's Hospital at the VEC

Alder Hey Children's Hospital is right at the cutting edge of innovation, testing and adopting emerging technologies in order to benefit patients throughout their journey.

We recently worked with Alder Hey's innovation team to explore the possibilities of using VR techniques on medical data, in this case a child's heart, to transform pre-operation planning.

We took techniques previously honed to look at our clients' products or processes in sectors such as automotive, aerospace and energy, and used them to visualise patient data in an interactive and immersive way.
