Projects per year
Dr. Jordan Tsigarides is an Academic Clinical Fellow in Rheumatology based at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) and Norwich Medical School. He is the VR lead for the NNUH and has been responsible for the development of multiple educational programmes utilising immersive technologies.
A passionate advocate for technology-enhanced learning, Jordan has spoken internationally on the use of immersive technologies for the delivery of medical education. Whilst working as a fellow at Norwich Medical School, alongside his Masters in Clinical Education, he conducted primary educational research on the efficacy of 360-degree video augmented simulation training. Whilst working as a clinician, Jordan’s immersive programmes have been vital when addressing some of the more difficult issues facing NHS trusts. He is also passionate about creating sustainable infrastructures for change, empowering colleagues to create content and generate their own immersive stories.
In regards to therapeutic VR, Jordan is currently the principal investigator for funded primary research projects investigating the use of VR for Fibromyalgia and chronic pain post-TKR. He founded the MSK Therapeutic VR Lab at the University of East Anglia (UEA) and is actively co-developing VR interventions alongside industry partners. His projects are patient-focused and aim to develop meaningful, acceptable interventions alongside individuals with chronic pain. He is also working with neuroscientist colleagues at the UEA using electroencephalography (EEG) to investigate the potential mechanisms of VR analgesia and the utility of Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) in chronic pain.
