SCALABLE LOW COST VIRTUAL REALITY SURGICAL SIMULATION
The benefits of surgical simulation are well documented; by providing medical professionals with more hands-on experience you have better prepared individuals, resulting in better patient outcomes.
The problem is cost. Cadaveric training is expensive and not always practical and with simulations the capital investment is often heavy – as a result access for most surgeons is rare.
THE FLIGHT SIMULATOR FOR SURGEONS
Our mission at FundamentalVR is to give you access to the best simulations on a day-to-day basis.
We believe that every surgeon should have the opportunity to rehearse, practise and test themselves within a safe, controllable space that is as close to real life as possible and is within an arm’s reach of their work place.
Fundamental Surgery is a software platform that takes advantage of readily available virtual reality hardware combined with cutting edge haptics (the sense of touch) to create a simulation system that can be used on any modern PC set up, even a laptop.
The result is a simulation system that requires a hardware investment of as little as $6,000 and a simple ongoing licence fee.
The system launches with simulations focused on the Orthopedic specialism but will quickly move into areas including Laparoscopic, General Surgery, Cardiovascular and Otolaryngology (ENT).
