Project Description

Osso VR is partnered with leading medical device companies and teaching hospitals to provide virtual reality simulations for medical device training. The tibial nail demo uses generic devices to demonstrate some of the interactive capabilities of virtual reality to medical device companies and teaching hospitals looking to expand their training methods. In practice, these simulations provide a safe, repeatable virtual environment for surgeons and residents to practice new procedures and handle new devices prior to performing the procedure on a patient.
