Synergy Correlation

NCKU presents Taiwan's first VR stroke education at the 2024 Taiwan Lantern Festival's 'Lighting Sanduan' area. The exhibit runs until February 29 at the South Plaza of the Tainan Exhibition Center. Besides showcasing the development of the VR-NIHSS system, it highlights the innovative use of VR technology in medical education, aiming to enhance early stroke treatment awareness.


The VR-NIHSS program integrates VR technology with the NIH Stroke Scale to offer precise training, immersive clinical experiences, and hardware-software integration. This initiative addresses the lack of interactivity and practical training in traditional stroke education methods. By simulating complex clinical scenarios, learners can practice stroke assessments and treatment decisions, improving their readiness to handle stroke emergencies and grasp the critical treatment window.


Led by Dr. Pi-Shan Sung (scopus) from NCKU Hospital, the project aims to revolutionize stroke education by providing a more realistic training environment. The VR-NIHSS program has already completed its initial clinical validation phase, demonstrating comparable efficacy to traditional methods and greater learner engagement.


Part of NCKU's two-year interdisciplinary sustainability project, the VR-NIHSS team comprises members from the medical, design, and engineering faculties. Their goal is to establish a virtual reality stroke simulation training center, fostering innovation in medical education and digital healthcare. The exhibition also serves as a platform for potential industry collaborations and international certifications, aligning with NCKU's commitment to quality education and healthcare sustainability.


The NCKU Sustainable Interdisciplinary Project Exhibition is located at the "Lighting Sanduan" area of the 2024 Taiwan Lantern Festival. It operates daily from 1:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Upcoming exhibits include projects led by Professor Wu Chih-Da from the Department of Surveying (March 1 to March 5) and Associate Professor Hsu Chih-Chung from the Institute of Data Science and Department of Statistics (March 6 to March 10). For more information, visit the official website of the 2024 Taiwan Lantern Festival in Tainan or refer to the transportation details provided by the Tainan Exhibition Center and "Good Transportation in Tainan" Facebook page.

From now until February 29th, Dr. Pi-Shan Sung (scopus) and her team from the National Cheng Kung University College of Medicine's affiliated hospital are hosting an exhibit at the 2024 Taiwan Lantern Festival High-Speed Rail Zone. They are showcasing Taiwan's first stroke education VR course, aiming to enhance awareness and understanding of stroke treatment during the critical golden hour.

The VR-NIHSS system development project is part of the National Cheng Kung University's two-year "Sustainable Interdisciplinary Integration Project." The team is showcasing their work at the exhibition by highlighting the unique features of the course development through videos. They are also demonstrating the use and innovative benefits of VR virtual reality experiences in medical education.

The 16-day exhibition of the NCKU Sustainable Interdisciplinary Project will feature three teams' achievements at the "Light Up Shalun" exhibition area of the 2024 Taiwan Lantern Festival. The exhibition runs from 1:00 PM to 9:00 PM daily. Visitors are welcome to attend.
