Good hygiene practice for immersive technology in healthcare during Covid-19

Although a strict hygiene policy is standard in healthcare, we believe – especially with the current health crisis in mind – there is a need for some ‘good hygiene practice’ guidelines for using immersive technology in healthcare. To set up these guidelines, we consulted both healthcare and industry experts and dived into the literature ourselves. In the infographic below, you can find our guidelines. 

Disclaimer: These guidelines are set up by researchers of the Thomas More University of Applied Sciences, based on input from healthcare and industry experts. The aim of these guidelines is to provide some practical handles with respect to hygiene before, during and after using immersive technology. These guidelines might be incomplete and are subordinate to the local, regional and national measures in force.
