Will my participation in the study take place despite COVID-19?

What is AR?

AR stands for Augmented Reality. The term describes a computer-aided presentation in which virtual objects are added to the real world. For example, a smartphone camera can be used to superimpose additional virtual information or objects.

A tablet with an augmented reality function is shown. There is a real torso with the anatomic terms written on the tablet.
