Mayo Clinic becomes first U.S. institution to train surgeons with Fundamental Surgery VR haptic simulations

Oct. 30, 2018

FundamentalVR, a Virtual Reality (VR) training and data analysis technology platform,

announced a three-year strategic alliance and joint development agreement with Mayo Clinic, which will see both companies jointly develop surgical VR simulation and education products.

In addition the current release of the Fundamental Surgery platform is now live in the Mayo Clinic’s simulation centers located in Arizona, Florida, and Minnesota.

As a result, FundamentalVR will leverage the expertise of surgeons and clinical practitioners, as well as 3D modelling, data scientists, and simulation specialists at Mayo Clinic, to create new simulation content, assessment criteria and validation for Fundamental Surgery, FundamentalVR’s Haptic and VR medical simulation platform. FundamentalVR will also benefit from access to a body of clinical research and validation opportunities.

The agreement will see the two parties collaborating on a range of simulations with an initial focus on the General Surgery area. They will then move into areas including robotic and patient specific simulation derived from DiCom (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) data and 3D modelling harnessing many years of Mayo Clinic clinical expertise into a whole new realm of education, assessment, and evaluation.
