Virtual reality is transforming training for surgeons

Fundamental VR has developed an integrated virtual reality and haptic tool that is used to help train surgeons to administer drugs during knee surgery. The tool is paired with a virtual reality headset, and the wearer experiences all the sounds and sensations of what it’s like to operate on a knee. “There’s an aim to emulate what you’ll actually feel when you perform open knee surgery,” production manager Mike Dickinson told WIRED. “Like a flight simulator, people can just keep going back and going back until they perfect it and our software will also tell you where you’re going right and where you’re going wrong.”
