Deputy Mayor for Business, Rajesh Agrawal, said: “I am delighted that Fundamental VR is joining me in Berlin as we showcase some of the most innovative and entrepreneurial businesses London has to offer.

“Our great city has a long and proud history of trading and doing business with our friends overseas and that will never change. The Mayor and I look forward to working with team at Fundamental VR, to build new relationships, attract investment and show the entire continent that London is Open and the best city in the world to do business with.”

Chris Scattergood, co-founder of Fundamental said: “The support offered by The Mayor’s International Business Programme has been invaluable as Fundamental continues to be recognised as market leaders for mixed reality training simulations featuring our ground breaking FeelReal VR haptic touch, and I’m delighted to now be joining the mission to Berlin as Britain formerly starts the Brexit process at this historical period in British Business history. Fundamental has extremely ambitious plans for growth in Europe and America and this trip will provide a unique opportunity to continue to collaborate and build European relationships ”

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.”
