ScioVR is a VR / AR-oriented development company based in Stockholm that focuses on professional simulators for healthcare education and training. ScioVR’s vision is to drive for equal opportunities through technology. Equal opportunity for the best healthcare science can offer. Equal opportunity for education. Equal opportunity for a healthy life.


ScioVR has in collaboration with one Stockholms largest hospitals “Södersjukhuset”, developed the Virtual Operating Room (VOP) platform to provide clinical training for medical professionals. In the VOP one could plan and train on procedures before the actual operation, resulting in more efficient teams, better outcomes for the patient and decreased cost. Several cooperation projects is also discussed with hospitals in Sweden and abroad.

ScioVR is also looking at similar new technologies like Augmented Reality (AR). For instance, AR could enable knowledge sharing from medical professionals from a distant location to support medical professionals on the site. The opportunity to have the world’s best surgeon monitoring and advicing at ones own surgery is priceless. Thus, there are good prospects for financing specific development projects together with clinics, leading MedTech companies, health authorities and organizations. An example is our AR application “EDAR” that can revolutionize medicine education by displaying agencies in an AR environment.


The team behind ScioVR has a solid experience from the company’s business area of education, VR/AR and healthcare. By combining the knowledge, ScioVR expects to change the way healthcare is provided today.
