2017 Vietnamese Talent Awards Champion: Success Requires Passion

In June, several public places like railway stations, airports, and schools, will see the appearance of devices to train cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) as used on people with a stroke or an infarct. The equipment is an IoT device developed based on 3D human anatomy simulation software, a product that won the first prize in IT category at the 2017 Vietnamese Talent Awards.
In 2017, the Vietnamese Talent Awards in IT honored only one product with a first prize: the “3D virtual reality application for the human body for use in health sciences teaching, training, and research” developed by a DTU research group.
Their work consists of creating a simulation of the human anatomy using interactive 3D virtual reality technology, including all systems and organs in the body: skeleton, musculature, circulatory system, nervous system, respiratory system, digestive system, secretion and genital systems, glands, and nodes. The software gives a complete 3D simulation of the human body including all anatomical highlights.
The research group’s work of creating a 3D virtual reality application showing the entire human body offering diverse interactivity with models of organs and systems, including even small anatomical details, and with a unified and accurate scientific data set is aimed at students, lecturers, researchers, and medical doctors.

That the group decided to research and develop the application entitled “Using 3D Virtual Reality Technology to Simulate the Human body for Health Science Education and Research” resulted from a practical need in lecturing and training. Anatomy is the most important subject throughout medical studies, but in practice not all medical education institutes can offer their students practical training. Instead, they make do with pictures, non-copyrighted software, or plastic models, leading to overloaded practice rooms and lack of visual learning.
Witnessing this, the members of the research group wondered why they could not just simulate the human body in virtual reality to help students. They would even be able to simulate systems and organs in motion like in reality. From the initial idea to recreate skeleton and musculature, the group developed their product to include all parts of the body and to emulate the movements of all organs.
According to Le Van Chung, member of the research group, the wish of the group when they took part in the 2017 Vietnamese Talent Awards was to make it to the top three of products awarded prizes. Another objective was to use the contest to let the entire country know about their product, about what they were doing, which was made possible due to the fact that the jury consisted of highly qualified and prestigious people. They exceeded these expectations, though, and the product is now being honed to bring even more benefits to medicine.
Le Van Chung explains that the product, which had been completed in terms of anatomy, is currently being developed for pre-clinical and pathophysiology simulations. Coming June 2018, they will produce several devices to train cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) as used on people with a stroke or an infarct. The equipment is an IoT device developed based on 3D human anatomy simulation software and will be placed at public places like railway stations, airports, and schools.
Revealing the secret to success for a technology student, Le Van Chung explains that he and his group do not yet consider themselves to have succeeded. According to Chung, creating a product of any value at all requires not only passion but also creative thinking. Creativity includes not being afraid to change what you already have.
For Chung, researching and developing an IT product needs and mindset and the skill of problem solving; without these it is not possible to pursue IT. A sufficient condition is passion, a passion to go to the end, in addition to a little bit of luck. Believing that passion can always light that fire, Le Van Chung and his group will continue reaping more successes on their journey of discovering and mastering technology.
