Medical professionals are always looking for new ways to better educate patients about their treatments. One of the newest innovations in this field is 3D medical animations, which provide a more engaging and accurate way to show what a person’s treatment may look like. These animations also help people feel much more at ease as they make difficult decisions about their health care, because they know exactly what will happen before it happens. In this blog post, we’ll discuss how innovative medical 3d animation can help you and your loved ones feel peace of mind as you make important healthcare choices!
Seeking medical help shouldn’t be scary, yet for many, fear of the unknown makes seeking medical care a near terrifying experience. Many doctors understand this and have started utilizing technology to help overcome the gap between what they know can help their patients and educating their patients on those options. One of those technologies that is changing the game is 3d animation, and how it’s being used in the medical care system. Doctors on the leading edge of medicine and technology are using 3d animations to help patients feel better educated and more confident in their medical decisions.
First, many doctors are using medical 3d animation to educate patients about what the issue is. For example, let’s say you have chest pain and go to your doctor. They run some tests and identify what the issue is, and now they have to relay that information to you. Well, you’re sitting there in pain, and just want to understand what’s going on. They turn to you and start using big words you don’t understand and you’re getting frustrated. It can be a recipe for disaster. But now let’s imagine they walk in the room with an iPad in their hand and inform you that they know what is causing the pain, and they have a short 90-second video that they are going to watch with you to help explain your condition. The video includes animations that help you visualize what is happening inside your body, since you can’t see it, and now you understand exactly what the issue is. Both patient and doctor are on the same page, and no one is frustrated.
Second, many doctors are using animated videos to help patients understand what their options are. For example, let’s say you broke your wrist and you’re wondering if you need to have surgery, or a cast alone will do the trick. You ask the doctor what they recommend, and they respond, “it’s up to you.” That’s not super helpful. But what if they had a short video that could use animations to show you how your wrist will heal without surgery versus how it will heal with surgery, and what those two options look like in detail? Do you think you could make a better decision for yourself at that point?
3d animated videos are a game changer when it comes to medicine and healthcare, and we’re excited to see more and more companies and doctors utilizing them to help better educate patients. Both on what the issue is, and what their options are. Because that’s how we help patients make the best decisions.
If you’re healthcare provider isn’t using 3d animation to help you make better medical decisions, ask them to!
