  • THE WORLD’S FIRST AND ONLY
    VR TRAINING SIMULATOR
    FOR ORTHOPEDIC OPEN SURGERIES

Virtual Practice Real Skills TM - To order : sales@ossimtech.com

Developed with renowned orthopedists, Sim-Ortho is the next generation virtual reality simulator designed for the training of medical students and residents in orthopedics.

Introduction to Sim-Ortho

The Sim-Ortho by OSSimTech is a virtual reality training simulator to teach and train orthopedic open-surgery. As the world’s first of its kind, the Sim-Ortho simulator offers unique possibilities to expand medical education of orthopedic surgery.

The Sim-Ortho enables simulation training of complex orthopedic procedures in knee and spine surgery as well as trauma surgery (available in 2017). Situated in a highly realistic 3D environment with detailed imaging, the trainee practices “hands-on” in a risk-free environment. The Sim-Ortho training simulator offers haptic feed-back (applied force and resistance) and allows handling and manipulation of multiple orthopedic tools. The Sim-Ortho training simulator is leading the path in high-fidelity simulation.

ADVANTAGES AND BENEFITS


ossimtech_patient_first.jpg

PATIENT FIRST!

With better training and education, we develop better doctors and therefore better patient care. With less theater time spent in the OR, residents need the best tools to ensure proper surgery training.

  • The Sim-Ortho training simulator enables students to practice different orthopedic surgeries that they would normally not necessarily practice often during their residency years.
  • Unlike in an OR where a mistake could injure the patient, training on the simulator allows residents to make mistakes and learn without consequences.

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT

Practice and repetition of complex surgeries on OSSimTech’s VR simulator accelerate the learning curve of its users.

  • The Sim-Ortho surgical simulator helps residents reach a predetermined level of high proficiency and allow them to go into the OR and fine-tune their skills starting from a higher level.
  • We provide training (that currently does not exist in any form of virtual reality at all) in procedures that carry significant morbidity, risks of patient complications and poor functional outcomes.

COST-SAVING

The use of the Sim-Ortho training simulator will contribute to surgical training with a reduction in the use of OR and material costs. This means less space required, reusability, no consumables and no mess! Wet labs and use of cadavers offer advantages but also come with significant disadvantages.

  • Costs for academic institutions are very high (not including maintenance fees) with low repeatability.
  • Health problems from exposure to embalming chemicals and religion issues are also common disadvantages associated to cadaver use.
  • Finally and most importantly, cadavers will most likely not present the pathologies that must be learned (Osteoarthritis, Scoliosis, Hernias, etc.)

The Sim-Ortho simulator is the perfect complement to cadaver labs. Residents develop a high level proficiency on the simulator before perfecting their art on cadavers and in the OR”

UNIQUE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE

With the Sim-Ortho simulator, we provide a unique educational experience where you feel in your hand what you see on the screen! OSSimTech simulators:

  • Allow handling and manipulation of multiple orthopedic tools in a highly realistic 3D environment mimicking the sound, force, and imaging of real-life actions in surgery.
  • Use its patented technology of real-time haptic feed-back (applied force and resistance) to provide a real “hands-on” feeling of handheld tools such as saws, screwdrivers, rongeurs or drills.
  • Develop the cognitive process of surgery where the trainee is involved in decision-making to optimize the outcomes of the procedures.

PERFORMANCE AND EVALUATION

The Sim-Ortho provides objective feedback on each tasks performed by the trainee. After each completed procedure, the user receives a feedback based on metrics developed with experts.

With medical education transitioning form an apprenticeship model to a competency-based model, there is a need for new education tools that can provide objective performance feedback to better assist the training process of residents, especially in surgery training.
