In terms of VR-based medical education, few companies are pushing the envelope quite like FundamentalVR. Since the launch of its remote training platform Fundamental Surgery in 2018, the London-based technology and data insight business has established itself as one of the leading providers of professional-grade surgical simulations, offering students and professionals alike an easier way of maintaining the skills necessary to perform effectively in the operating room.
By employing a unique combination of haptic technology and hardware-agnostic software, Fundamental Surgery is able to deliver a genuine sense of touch when performing key surgical actions, interacting with specific medical tools, and operating on different tissue variants. The result is a hyper-realistic simulation that allows students to develop the muscle memory needed to properly operate on human patients.
For those with at least a fundamental (oh my god, I just got it) understanding of medicine, Fundamental Surgery represents the next generation of professional-grade surgical training.
Whether it be their HapticVR surgical simulations or more-accessible @HomeVR education modality for standalone headsets, FundamentalVR is leading the charge for VR-based medical training. After going hands-on with Fundamental Surgery on Oculus Quest, I can’t wait to see what’s next for this ambitious platform.
