VirtaMed Revolutionizes Orthopedic Training with Launch of Meniscal Repair Simulation Module

February 15, 2023

Experience Realistic Meniscal Tear Repairs with the New Innovative Training Solution from VirtaMed

Zurich, Switzerland - VirtaMed, a leading provider of medical training simulators, announced the launch of its Meniscal Repair Module. This innovative new module allows trainees to practice and perform a range of techniques to repair different types of meniscal tears. The module includes simulations for the all-inside technique, outside-in technique, transtibial pullout technique for meniscal root repair, and meniscal ramp repair using a two-portal posteromedial approach.

The Meniscal Repair Module has been developed by VirtaMed in collaboration with the renowned orthopedic surgeon Professor Romain Seil, who has over 20 years of experience in the field of arthroscopy and meniscal repair. The module builds upon VirtaMed’s previous work on developing innovative orthopedic training simulators and has been financed by a European innovation grant. Professor Seil and his team at the Centre Hospitalier de Luxembourg (CHL) committed their extensive knowledge and expertise to the development of this module.
