OPERATING ROOMS represent one of the highest cost-per-square-foot areas
of a hospital. As such, project teams spend many hours doing mock-ups,
usually in the later phases of design when changes are more costly, to test
different room sizes and equipment configurations. While many firms
have added virtual reality (VR) services and presentations to expedite
the design and decision-making processes-including those related to
OR design-Eyal Perchik, principal at CO Architects (Los Angeles), says
he found not all clients knew how to use the headset and controllers, nor
were they comfortable wearing the technology in front of colleagues.
In response, last year CO Architects introduced a Virtual Operating
Room Experience (VORE) to serve VR-savvy and more tactile clients
alike. VORE blends virtual gaming technologies with smaller models,
creating a hybrid experience allowing interaction with both virtual and
physical models of an OR. The software simultaneously tracks physical

model elements, including equipment (operating
tools, lighting) and characters (nurses, doctors),
that act as "game pieces." When an object is moved
within the physical model, its virtual representation moves simultaneously to the same position.
Additionally, the person wearing the VR headset
can also alternate between characters' points of
view to test different ways doctors or nurses might
use the space, while a shared computer screen displays what is also seen through the headset, heightening the collaborative experience. "VORE is
intended to supplement and eventually replace the
need for expensive full-scale physical mock-up operating rooms, especially at the early design phases,
and help simplify the review process associated
with these types of complex projects," Perchik says.
Still, Perchik recognizes that adoption-especially within the healthcare sector-may take some
time. For one healthcare project, the firm designed
15 OR rooms for a client and presented a version of
VORE in the early stages to the simulation department. "Although in the end they elected to go with
full-scale mock-ups, the stakeholders reacted positively to the experience and found it to be informative in terms of future OR set-ups," he says.-AD
