Validated Arthroscopic Simulation 

Simulation training is an essential part of the educational pathway to train outside of the operating room. Independent validation studies show the VirtaMed ArthroS™ to be the most realistic and impactful teaching tool you can add to your training program.

Head-to-head comparisons of the VirtaMed ArthroS™ and other simulators repeatedly quantify the greater quality and educational relevance of this advanced arthroscopic simulator.

Passive haptic feedback was judged to be superior when compared to active haptic feedback mechanisms in the context of VR arthroscopy - which suggests that the significantly superior passive haptic feedback may have a beneficial impact on the educational value of the simulator, resulting in improved precision and of trainees in the operating room.

VirtaMed ArthroS™ Knee Simulator

Anatomically Correct Patient Model

  • Right knee model allows physical manipulation of the knee joint, including varus and valgus, flexion, and extension

  • Perfectly replicated internal structures such as bones, menisci, ACL, and tendons offer learning-essential haptic feedback

  • Patient model and original instruments are sensorized with sub-millimeter precision

Concepts of ACL Reconstruction


Learn to diagnose an ACL tear, remove the injured ligament, and find the optimal locations for the replacement graft, using the risk-free environment to explore how slight changes in the graft's location can affect joint function.

A variety of cases range from partial to complete ACL tears, including different complications encountered during routine ACL reconstruction procedures, better preparing trainees for the operating room.

Therapeutic Procedures

Use arthroscopic instruments to treat meniscus lesions, combined arthrosis and tears, synovitis, loose bodies, torn and ruptured ACLs for chronic and subacute patients. 

Objective feedback reports provide learners with essential information on how well they performed the procedure and which aspects to focus on next time.

With simulation, the next patient is just a click away!

Guided Diagnostics & Therapeutics

Learn instrument handling and triangulation skills while avoiding cartilage damage. Learn to visualize relevant structures with an arthroscope, palpate them with a probe, and resect them with a punch and shaver.

Experts from the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA) have defined guided tours so that trainees learn the optimal path to take when performing a diagnostic tour.
