Medical carts are often kept locked until they are used during an emergency or procedure, in order to ensure accuracy of contents. This presents challenges for clinicians to competently know what is contained and where items are located, since they cannot simply open and explore certain carts when it is convenient for them to learn. Seconds and minutes can change the outcome in an emergency, and knowing a cart inside and out can reduce time to interventions.

With the immersion of augmented reality, users can explore realistically scaled and highly detailed versions of their local organization's medical carts. The Medical Cart AR app features different modes that allow for a more relaxed experienced, or one that pits users against the clock to find items as quickly as possible.
