MedMirror, a Full-Length Digital Display That Lets Patients Virtually See Inside of Their Own Bodies
MedMirror is a magical experience that creates a new category of Medical Visualization – one that interactively puts patients at the center of their healthcare experience by utilizing them as the canvas – and can include everything from anatomical visualization to interacting with a favorite character – creating a unique environment that educates, inspires, and uplifts everyone from children to adults.
Chicago, April 7, 2022 – Thyng, LLC announces the launch of MedMirror, a freestanding display that uses advanced 3D body tracking to create a next generation patient experience and enhances the digital care journey. These interactive experiences help educate and create positive healthcare outcomes for patients of all ages. MedMirror is the newest product available for MedReality, Thyng’s healthcare visualization platform, a suite of products that bring real medical cases into 3D.
The goals of the MedMirror are twofold, to educate patients through an engaging visual medium, and to provide inspirational uplifting experiences. MedMirror puts patients front and center, using their body as a canvas to showcase the spatial relationship of body systems and medical conditions. One experience allows patients to stand in front of the MedMirror and view 3D anatomies digitally overlaid onto their body to better understand a medical condition, effectively allowing patients to virtually “see” inside of their own bodies. Another experience allows pediatric patients to become a favorite superhero and reduce the stress and anxiety that often comes along with a hospital stay.
“MedMirror creates a new level of understanding and inspiration within patients”, said Ed LaHood, CEO of Thyng, “allowing for better education, and creating an environment where their spirit is uplifted.”
“Patient education is crucial. Engaging with innovative digital tools like MedMirror improves our interactions.” said Dr. Jonathan Morris, Neuroradiologist and Medical Director of Advanced Biomedical Visualization and Experiential Learning at Mayo Clinic, “Not only does it educate but can reduce anxiety in the pediatric age group who are in an unfamiliar place.”
