Augmented reality (AR) is a version of virtual reality (VR) technology, and digital three-dimensional interfaces and virtual objects appear before us as a dynamic and innovative technology allowing simultaneous interaction with the real world. Today, we encounter wearable technologies as the widespread use of augmented reality technologies. Along with the rapid proliferation of mobile devices and wireless network technologies, innovative technologies such as augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) have also become useable in each domain. The development of health technologies also in the same pace brings along the opportunities for using such technologies in the domain of health. In the present study, literature review on AR practices used in the domain of health was made, and the data was analyzed.
