Fresenius Medical introduces AR application to train ICU staff

Fresenius Medical Care has introduced an augmented reality (AR) application to enhance training for intensive care unit (ICU) nursing staff.

The Ready4 multiFiltratePRO AR application is designed for training on the company’s Continuous Kidney Replacement Therapy system, merging digital learning elements with real-life training.

Together with digital learning modules, the AR glasses allow nurses to learn how to use acute dialysis machines on-site within the wards.

As the user interacts with the dialysis machine, the technology streams visual and audio instructions, facilitating a comprehensive learning process.

Fresenius Medical Care management board member Dr Katarzyna Mazur-Hofsäß said: “We have a dedicated focus on leveraging advanced technology to develop and provide the most innovative technologies, engineered to facilitate and simplify the learning process.

“Our innovative solution is designed to ensure that nursing staff, particularly those in Intensive Care Units, are equipped with the knowledge needed to provide high-quality and exceptional patient care.”

Fresenius Medical Care plans to launch the application in select markets by the second quarter of 2024, with a broader release in the Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific regions to follow.

The application is tailored for use with the multiFiltratePRO Continuous Kidney Replacement Therapy system, currently operational in more than 40 countries worldwide.

The company plans for a limited launch of the multiFiltratePRO system in the US later this year.

A full launch, including the Ready4 multiFiltratePRO AR experience, is contingent on the successful outcome of the Safety of Regional Citrate Anticoagulation (SARCA) trial and is scheduled for 2025. 

The AR training tool was showcased at the International Symposium on Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine (ISICEM) in Brussels.

Last month, PatenSee agreed to conduct a multi-centre pilot trial of its contactless monitoring system within Fresenius Medical Care’s dialysis clinics in Israel.
