Thomas Saaby Noer
Head of Healthcare

Thomas Saaby Noer is the Head of Healthcare at Khora, a VR/AR company based in Copenhagen. In this talk, he will take us on a journey through the recent history of virtual reality in healthcare and show how it offers a novel, experience-based approach to designing innovative solutions.

Khora has been at the forefront of virtual and augmented reality, using immersive experiences to solve problems such as pain distraction during needle procedures, and to treat social anxiety and other mental health issues. The talk will include real-life examples of how these solutions are being used in both research and everyday use in hospitals.
