Lumeto partners to provide VR-based training to Connected Care Capsule funded by Canadian Space Agency
Lumeto’s InvolveXR Platform Will Support Clinical Training to Enhance Patient Safety in Remote Communities and Space
Toronto, Canada, June 5, 2023 – Lumeto has joined a world class technology and healthcare consortium led by the Canadian Space Mining Corporation (CSMC) to prototype a new frontier of connected care solutions aimed at supporting remote communities (both in space and on Earth) with ongoing high-quality healthcare. The Connected Care Capsule (C3) is a container-based medical unit that has been funded by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) as a part of their Health Beyond initiative and Connected Care Medical Module (“C2M2”) – an early-stage prototyping exercise for a lunar hospital with potential space applications. Complementing CSMC’s vision for an infinitely scalable medical solution delivered through self-contained units, Lumeto’s InvolveXR training platform will feature a fully functional digital twin of C3 in Virtual Reality (VR) to provide remote, on-demand training for the diagnoses, treatment and care utilizing the integrated medical equipment and devices for future applications in space, and also for immediate health care needs on Earth.
“We are pleased to be collaborating with Lumeto as one of our world-class partners to implement the Connected Care Capsule project,” said Daniel Sax, Co-Founder and CEO of CSMC. “The shipping container medical clinics are self-contained units that will help to bridge the health care gap in remote and Indigenous communities.”
“Lumeto’s work is about enhancing patient safety and outcomes by better preparing healthcare workers, wherever they may be”, said Raja Khanna, Co-Founder and CEO of Lumeto. “We’re excited to play an integral role in bringing accessible and effective healthcare training to remote communities, and to space, through this visionary project.”
CSMC’s C3 module, including Lumeto’s InvolveXR capabilities for this, has moved into the user testing phase and deployment is slated for 2024.
Lumeto’s immersive simulation lab, InvolveXR, aims to meaningfully reduce the huge social and financial cost of medical error. Flexible, interdisciplinary, and synchronous training in virtual simulated environments can improve the preparedness and confidence of clinicians globally. . Lumeto operates across the healthcare spectrum, catering to educators and learners at every level of their competency, enhancing learning outcomes tied to individual and team decision-making, problem-solving, de-escalation and complex or rare procedures.Lumeto is based in Toronto, Canada, and employs a global workforce.
