The Challenge

The current approach of guiding and training a student is that the student is accompanied by a supervisor and they perform tasks together. In order to make this process more time efficient and to increase the learning success of the students, Vitalis wanted to implement a smart glass into this process. So the student would be able to perform tasks independently, but still be supervised by the supervisor through the smart glass. In addition, the supervisor does not have to be physically present, but can provide assistance from the office.

The main focus while choosing a smartglass was the option to use Microsoft Teams,  because this software is already implemented throughout Vitalis. This would lead to an easy and fast implementation of the smartglass into their process. Additionally it was important for the smartglass to be comfortable while wearing and easy to use without needing hands.

The Solution

VR Expert provided Vitals with information about which smartglasses were already used in other organizations dedicated to elderly care and on which smartglass it is possible to use the software Microsoft Teams. Together with the help of VR Expert, Vitaltis decided to work with the RealWear Navigator 500.

Vitalis decided on the RealWear Navigator 500 because the headset is very comfortable while wearing it. They were particularly impressed by the hands-free functionality enabled through voice commands and the convenience of being able to move the display upwards when not in use. Moreover, the RealWear Navigator 500 meets Vitalis’ main criteria as it allows the usage of the Microsoft Teams software.

During the testing phase from March till the end of June, the RealWear Navigator 500 was trialed at one location with positive results. It was successfully used by one student and one supervisor, showcasing its potential benefits. The next phase of implementation is planned for September/October at the same location, where the RealWear will be used with multiple students and supervisors. This will be a significant step forward in introducing the technology to Vitalis. Once implemented, the RealWear Navigator 500 will greatly enhance the learning experience and make the process more time-efficient. Supervisors can provide remote guidance, offering a flexible and efficient approach to student learning.
