The Virtual Interactive Surgical Environment project or VISE for short, focuses on emergency room procedures. These procedures are hard to replicate but VISE makes this possible. During these procedures, decisions have to be made in order to stabilise and diagnose the patient. Students engage a patient and have to perform the required tasks in the virtual environment. The scoring system gives real-time feedback on correct/incorrect actions. At the end of the given task, students are graded and this logged into the system. All tools, equipment and persons are designed and detailed, made to simulate the actual environment. This, along with other features included in VISE make it a valuable tool for doctors and nurses to-be.
