When building a new hospital, traditionally a 1:1 physical mock-up is built in order to test flexibility and functionality of eg. an Operation Theatre. In this case, testing new scenarios can often become a very lengthy process due to the logistical challenges involved in moving big equipment around.
Projekt Universitetshospital Køge is building Region Zealand's top modern hospital that will be completed in 2023. To speed up the decision process of the design of certain rooms, Khora has built a Virtual Reality version of the Operation Theatre. Here, surgeons and nurses have the possibility to play through different scenarios in a 1:1 scale digital model, including moveable high-tech equipment.
