Medical Realities launches a free digital online resource to train 1m healthcare workers for COVID-19

This definitive resource guide will facilitate the

onboarding of additional medical staff during the pandemic


London, UK, April 2020 – 

A COVID 19 digital online resource is launched for healthcare workers.  Arishi, experts in delivering technical solutions for healthcare, enterprise, retail, fintech, finance and government, today announces a partnership with Medical Realities, global leaders in immersive education that will support the surge of trained medical volunteers joining the fight against COVID-19.

The training resources can be found here at 

With over a million people in the UK alone pledging their time to support the NHS volunteer scheme, and the need to educate returning and existing staff under the pressure of dealing with the outbreak, the need for fast, effective training is crucial. The creation of these resources means existing professionals, medical students, and volunteers with a medical background can learn/re-learn and become accredited as soon as possible, without the added risk or cost of face to face training.

Modules will be released over the coming weeks, with the first session to be released on basic life support this week. Visual, interactive, and properly assessed to ensure the standard trainees reach is compliant from a medical standpoint, the resource system is launching in the UK and will be available globally.

Medical Realities and Arishi’s innovative technologies will support the provision of digital training systems, accounts, and modules on subjects such as life support, how to help people breathe, infection control, when and how to use a defibrillator and more,  culminating a stratified resource library with only the most up to date, confirmed information for the current pandemic. 

Medical Realities, who are leaders in virtual Reality and medical training, are joining forces with the UK’s original pioneers in augmented reality technology, Arishi. Both are passionate about bringing their knowledge and capabilities to new sectors and together will be answering a growing need in clinical training by leveraging new and exciting technologies. 

This partnership is a natural union between Arishi’s 10+ years of experience in augmented and virtual reality development and Medical Realities’ expertise and recognition in the health tech sector.  Medical Realities is already a game-changer in terms of the way they are revolutionising the training process but as technologies are evolving and a need for more advanced training techniques grows, the solution is well placed.

Professor Shafi Ahmed CMO and Co-Founder of Medical Realities comments “The current pandemic has shown the immediate need for a credible online resource for training healthcare professional with the necessary skills. We are looking forward to our partnership with Arishi in creating the tools for the future of online and immersive education for all healthcare professionals. 

Andrew Elia, Managing Director, said, “Medical Realities are a natural partner who we have known and admired since their inception, and we are excited to join them on their journey to revolutionise the way we educate our next generation of doctors and nurses and leverage a global set of capabilities to enhance the quality and skills of our healthcare workers.
