About HCESC and Jump ARCHES

The Health Care Engineering Systems Center (HCESC) at the College of Engineering of the University of Illinois provides clinical immersion to engineers and fosters collaborations between engineers and physicians. They use their expertise in the broad areas of health information technologies, sensing and devices, materials and mechanics, and human factors/industrial ergonomics and design, to develop collaborative projects which could be used for simulation in training of medical practitioners of tomorrow.

The University of Illinois has partnered with OSF HealthCare on the initiative known as Jump Applied Research for Community Health through Engineering and Simulation (Jump ARCHES).

Jump ARCHES is innovating in the areas of augmented reality, virtual reality, medical simulation, robotics and smart health technologies by creating new groundbreaking products and solutions which promises to improve healthcare outcomes.
