Reproductive Health Practitioners Around the World Continue to Gain Hands-On Experience with the New ASRM Embryo Transfer Simulator
December 08, 2016Introduced in October 2015 at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) Annual Scientific Congress, the ASRM Embryo Transfer Simulator (“Simulator”) has been successfully deployed over the last 12 months at embryo transfer simulation workshops and training sessions from Alabama to Helsinki, garnering positive response from the hundreds of physicians and healthcare professionals who have experienced working with the Simulator, most recently in Salt Lake City, UT at the ASRM 2016 Scientific Congress & Expo.
VirtaMed revolutionizes a 4,000-year-old tradition
September 28, 2016VirtaMed is a company that respects the past, whilst looking to the future in surgical training. Technological innovation with patient care at the center are the pillars of VirtaMed’s visionary ideas. Rather than breaking from surgical training traditions, VirtaMed sees itself as improving, developing, and building on these traditions to improve patient care and surgical training.
Meet VirtaMed: “You have to learn the rules before you can break them”
September 27, 2016Our 3D Artist Johannes Kiesbauer has learned that if you want creative freedom, you need to work hard, try different things, and make many mistakes. Understanding basic laws of physics and the workings of a programmer’s mind helps, too.
VirtaMed introduces customized imaging technologies for KARL STORZ UroTrainer simulator
September 27, 2016PDD and SPECTRA A/B, developed by KARL STORZ for the IMAGE1 S camera platform, are two different imaging technologies with the same goal: to help surgeons recognize different tissues during operation. Physicians can now experience the benefits of both technologies in virtual reality by using the VirtaMed-powered endoscopic UroTrainer simulator.
Meet VirtaMed: “For us nothing is impossible”
June 28, 2016Our development technician Daniel Jiroudek takes an idea and turns it into something we can hold in our hands. His passion is to create objects that have a function – for example an unusually curved uterus for an embryo transfer simulator.
New Developments in Surgical Simulation: VirtaMed’s new ArthroS™ Hip
June 28, 2016Get a behind-the-scenes look at VirtaMed’s latest ArthroS Hip Simulator. Learn more about the development of the ArthroS Hip. You will even got your hands on some top secret designs that didn’t quite make the final cut.
VirtaMed hip arthroscopy simulator takes fluoroscopy guided access training to virtual reality
June 01, 2016Safe access training for portal placement, fluoroscopic imaging, diagnostic tours, and therapeutic cases, all wrapped in a combination of an extremely realistic anatomic model and a high-fidelity virtual reality environment. VirtaMed introduces the ArthroS™ Hip Module at the EFORT Congress in Geneva, Switzerland, on 1–3 June.
Meet VirtaMed: “Photorealism is great, but solving a teaching problem is more important”
March 29, 2016Basil Fierz is part of the software engine team that works to improve the performance of VirtaMed’s surgical simulator systems. In other words, Basil’s job is to solve problems that customers didn’t even know they had.
Pure science, no fiction: All VirtaMed simulators validated by medical research
March 29, 2016A virtual reality surgical simulator can look good, save money and boost your image. However, none of that means anything if the simulator doesn’t do what it was built to do: prepare practitioners for real-life medical procedures. That’s why validation studies are so important, and that’s why we’re so proud to say that all our simulators have been validated by the medical community. Three recent studies evaluated the HystSim™, PelvicSim™ and ArthroS™ Shoulder simulators.
VirtaMed introduces virtual reality simulation for ACL reconstruction
February 17, 2016VirtaMed has developed a virtual reality simulation for ACL reconstruction. This new orthopedic training module for knee arthroscopy will be available for the VirtaMed ArthroS™ simulator, and the company will introduce it at the AAOS 2016 conference in Orlando, FL.
