FundamentalVR Partners With Mayo Clinic To Develop Haptic VR Surgery Simulations

Mayo Clinic brings their massive body of research to FundamentalVR’s simulation platform.

According to a 2015 commission report launched at the Royal Society of Medicine in London, UK, 5 Billion people still don’t have access to safe surgery due to a lack of trained professionals. In the U.S. alone, over $15 billion a year is spent solely on medical training, much of which is wasted on antiquated, expensive, and non-repeatable methods that offer students little chance of any hands-on practice.

The truth is that the method in which surgeons are trained has changed very little over the past 150 years.

Have your say!
