Role in the Therapy Lens

The research group IAF will take the lead in the Therapy Lens project on creating and developing the augmented reality content for the suggested scenario. The content will be designed based on clinical and scientific requirements in cooperation with other project partners. The deep experience of the group in creating immersive, intuitive and usable augmented reality application for HoloLens devices will be realized in the TherapyLens project and the final output product.
