Step into The Surgical Suite at BIOMEDevice Boston, brought to you by MD+DI, to learn about cutting-edge advancements in the surgical field. Get up to speed on robotic-assisted surgery, interact with the CorPath GRX system to see how Corindus Vascular Robotics is seeking to redefine the cath lab, experience the training platform that Fundamental Surgery touts as “the virtual reality flight simulator for surgeons,” and see anatomical models with breathtaking realism for surgical simulation from Simulated Inanimate Models LLC (SIM).
The Surgical Suite participants include:
Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc. is a global technology leader in robotic-assisted vascular interventions. The Company’s CorPath® platform is the first FDA-cleared medical device to bring robotic precision to percutaneous coronary and vascular procedures. CorPath GRX is the second-generation robotic-assisted technology offering enhancements to the platform by adding important key upgrades that increase precision, improve workflow, and extend the capabilities and range of procedures that can be performed robotically. The company is focused on developing innovative robotic solutions to revolutionize treatment of emergent conditions by providing specialized and timely medical care to patients around the world.
FundamentalVR is a technology and data insight business specializing in the intersection between immersive experiences and haptics to enhance medical training and outcomes. Its SaaS platform, Fundamental Surgery, features VR Haptics technology that takes advantage of readily available virtual reality hardware to create a simulation system that can be used on any modern VR-enabled PC/laptop. Fundamental Surgery gives healthcare professionals around the world low-cost access to authentic surgical simulations with precise measurement and performance insight.
Simulated Inanimate Models LLC (SIM) manufactures synthetic, lifelike physical anatomical models to enable surgeons to train to competency with zero risk to the patient. The company is focused on shifting surgical training out of the operating room and into a simulated educational environment using a patent-pending system. SIM’s training models are able to replicate all steps of a complete operating room procedure, including pre-operative planning, pre- and intra-operative imaging (MRI, CT and ultrasound), and procedure-specific functionality. SIM is constantly working to develop technological and educational innovations that improve patient safety and broadly increase the quality of healthcare delivered.
