FundamentalVR is a deep IP company working at the intersection of immersive technology (XR), haptics and machine learning. It is our belief that immersive technology has the ability to change the human/computing interface forever, to transcend geographies and accelerate business. We are excited to apply this belief to the healthcare industry.
Our mission is to create platforms that revolutionize education, skills acquisition, practice and the deep data insight that comes from it.
Our platform, Fundamental Surgery is the market leading medical education platform delivering multimodal simulation and education across tethered and all-in-one VR, mixed reality and mobile, harnessing the very latest AI techniques. It is the only global platform to have achieved educational accreditation from leading medical institutions such as the AAOS and Royal College of Surgeons England.
Bringing the sense of true touch into a VR experience completes the circle of immersion and delivers the user with full presence.
At the core of the FundamentalVR tech stack is our Haptic Intelligence Engine, a unique, patent protected software modelling system that delivers high fidelity physical interaction.
The Haptic Intelligence Engine is a hardware agnostic software engine that delivers full kinesthetic force feedback haptics into a variety of handheld devices ranging from base station held instruments through to haptic gloves. We call this HapticVR™ .
With HapticVR™ we are able to accelerate skills acquisition, lighten the cognitive load and deliver significantly enhanced user experiences. Within our medical education platform, Fundamental Surgery, this capability has been validated to increase skills development by enabling surgeons to learn true muscle memory.

All-in-one HMDs deliver scalability and ease of use. With simple, low cost, quick set up capability the all-in-one headset offers the opportunity to push immersive experiences to a much wider user group.
Our unique platform approach to development means that optimizing for the all-in-one devices is simple and quick and we can ensure that however a user accesses an experience the insight and data from that session is held in an easily accessible format within our central data dashboard.

Once you have experienced the sense of presence delivered from a collaborative VR experience with friends or colleagues from around the world you will understand the true potential for VR to change the human/computing interface forever.
Cross platform/device our MultiuserVR plug in enables unlimited users from anywhere in the world to join together, share and learn. Find out more by visiting FundamentalSurgery.com
Collaborative mixed reality experiences (MR) using platforms such as Hololens and Magic Leap offer great potential for new modalities of education. To date we have focused our use of MR into the area of collaborative education and training, porting user experiences into these interactive environments.
As Immersive technology continues to develop we see a convergence between VR and MR headsets that will allow for seamless switching between both MR and VR, driven by the user experience and skills transfer need. Visit our YouTube channel to see more of this in action.
Our platforms deliver an immense amount of data covering knowledge and skills development across all modalities of interaction. When connected with our HapticVR™ capability this insight rises exponentially.
We apply cutting edge AI and machine learning techniques to this data to deliver deep levels of understanding into a user’s current and future potential, predicting how their capability and skills will develop.
Today our platform uses all this insight and applied AI to deliver assessment and accreditation for users. This continues to develop into an exciting new data capability that will inform and help to guide healthcare decisions at the point of care and in R&D.
5G & Edge
FundamentalVR is working with the world’s leading data infrastructure companies to push the boundaries of immersive experiences. As part of this we see a future where the vast majority of the GPU heavy computation necessary for quality immersive experiences will be handled in the cloud and accessed through 5G infrastructure.
Together we will reduce the local computation burden, increase range and capability and deliver this to an even more diverse user group.
