A device that allows simulation of common surgical procedures for medical education and analysis of complex procedures for presurgical planning.
Patented simulation technology provides high-fidelity replication of cadaver and live surgical touch and feel.
Both open, percutaneous, and microsurgical procedures available with procedure specific instruments and controls.
Surgeon interacts with a 3D computer-generated anatomical model to reproduce audio, visual and tactile sensations of a surgical procedure.
Patient specific models combining multiple medical imaging (MRI, CT, or co-registered MRI/CT);
Immersive 3-D Visual/Haptic exploration of anatomies for training and surgery preparation.
High visual acuity, realistic force feedback, spatialized 3D audio, head and hand tracking; No manikins, physical models, or task trainers required.
Concern about new surgeons’ relative lack of experience is especially top-of-mind following the 2011 revision to residency hour restrictions by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical
Along with fewer working hours for new surgeons comes less exposure to different cases and patient-specific nuances (Director, Residency program).
Surgical interns who had trained on a simulator were quicker and more accurate than a control group (U. Michigan study).
What Training Can Be Conducted in Ophthalmology?
Clear Corneal incision.
New modules under development
Epiretinal membrane peeling.
What Are the Training Solutions?
Buy/lease simulators for your own lab or simulation center
We help set up the instruction program, curriculum, courses, etc. and integrate it with your current instruction programs. Your education faculty/personnel schedule and conduct training enhanced with ImmersiveTouch simulators.
Immersive Surgical Training (“Boot Camp”)
We arrange 1-3 days training for your residents /participants. We customize the training for you
(content, techniques, curriculum integration, etc.). We provide effectiveness metrics for each participant.
Simulation provides a controlled environment for surgical residents. There are obvious patient safety benefits. Residents are allowed not only to repeat things, but to make mistakes they
cannot make in a patient care setting.

Mastering basics with a simulator frees up clinical time to learn more complicated aspects of patient care, such as critical thinking and communication among surgical team members
