Numerous medical training institutions have found that integrating simulation into their curriculum both improves training outcomes and ultimately supports better patient care.
Save Time and Money
Trainees with regular access to a simulator reach defined proficiency levels faster, meaning that they get into the OR sooner.
- Residents first trained on a simulator take less time to complete procedures once they are in the OR - and make fewer errors.
Residents enter the OR having already mastered the basics and can focus on learning more complex skills.
Validation of a virtual reality-based simulator for shoulder arthroscopy
Stefan Rahm, Marco Germann, Andreas Hingsammer, Karl Wieser, Christian GerberThis study was to determine face and construct validity of a new virtual reality-based shoulder arthroscopy simulator which uses passive haptic feedback.
Evaluation of a virtual-reality-based simulator using passive haptic feedback for knee arthroscopy
Sandro F. Fucentese, Stefan Rahm, Karl Wieser, Jonas Spillmann, Matthias Harders, Peter P. KochSimulator training in orthopaedics is still in its infancy. The aim of this study is to determine face and construct validity of a new virtual reality simulator (VirtaMed ArthroS™) for diagnostic and therapeutic knee arthroscopy by analysis of simulator metrics of participants with varying arthroscopy experience.
This simulator has entered the market only recently, so there are no stories on centers of excellence available right now.
As this simulator is quite new on the market, there are no published validation studies available right now. If you would like to know more about the studies currently going on, please do not hesitate to contact us.
