Pixels Health’s vision for its use
in the healthcare sector
The “Meta Quest Pro” headset is a new tool incorporating mixed reality technology, blending digital elements with the real-world environment. Equipped with new high-definition cameras, a more powerful chip, a better screen, and more storage capacity than the Quest 2, this headset performs better with a wider and more precise field of view using the latest “pancake” lens and optics technology. Interestingly, this device can capture facial expressions to be reproduced by the avatar in the Metaverse, offering a near-reality user experience.
The “Meta Quest Pro” is an incremental innovation that is not considered a simple entertainment device but an evolutionary tool designed for business use.
Due to its high-tech features and new functionalities, “Meta Quest Pro” will greatly interest many sectors, including healthcare. This provides a unique perspective on the potential of these technologies to immerse the user in the Metaverse, which makes their use more engaging and fun. For example, we can imagine a patient-doctor or patient-pharmacist interaction in an entirely virtual world.

As a company with a creative approach, Pixels Health is strengthening its presence in the digital health market by focusing on innovation and new technologies such as mixed reality. From this perspective, our company is continuously informed about the advances in this technology. The latest version of Meta Quest Pro developed by Meta would be interesting for our future vision regarding the healthcare sector.
We have been using mixed reality in pharmaceutical marketing to provide interactive promotional materials and reshape medical practice. Let’s imagine an interactive scenario where the physician travels inside the human body and visualize the mechanism of action of a new drug, or its use in medical education and training.
Meta has already developed effective headsets that have been applied in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries. “Meta Quest Pro” will then go beyond games. It is suitable for any user, whether it is a marketer, a researcher, a healthcare professional, or a patient.
Given its importance in the professional world, this technology is complicated and more expensive, despite being part of democratization. It costs around €1,800, which is higher than the previous versions of Oculus headsets. However, the price is still lower than the HoloLens headsets that provide a more advanced augmented reality experience.
In conclusion, while the value of Meta Quest Pro is tangible, its use in the healthcare sector may be limited due to its high cost. This technology seems to be more focused on virtual reality rather than augmented reality, Meta will be able to develop in the future high-quality augmented reality that will be widely used in various fields.
Also, the upcoming mixed reality technology will significantly impact the medical industry such as medical objects scanned/combined with headsets to perform training sessions on complex surgeries.
However, will there be more affordable versions for patients and medical professionals? Will using “Meta Quest Pro” be significantly more beneficial and effective over time than other versions of the Oculus headset to justify the high costs?
