Metaverse is an augmented virtual world derived from the convergence of virtual and physical space, and it is a new digital virtual space with infinite scalability such as users meeting each other and providing transactions, experiences and services.
As a new world can be created by merging virtual space and virtual space, virtual space and physical space, Metaverse are being created and evolved in various fields such as schools, companies, and governments, but in the medical and healthcare fields, the Metaverse acts as a practical limit because the physical results of treatment and health must be derived.
Even now, in medical education, lectures through VR (Virtual Reality) and AR (Augmented Reality), or actual surgery through wearables (surgery gloves, etc.) has been developed to tangible VR, and it is moving forward in the form of visiting or giving lectures by making a hospital into a virtual space.
However, even though the Metaverse requires users to easily access and perform the information and actions they want, in the healthcare field, the Metaverse is limited to providing their own technologies and services to specific institutions, companies, schools, and hospitals.
