– The proven training system.
The advantages of virtual reality simulators are well‐established: simulation training gives a positive effect on the learning curve and improvement of basic psychomotor skills in the operating room1. Virtual reality simulation has shown to deliver a fast and foremost a patient‐safe path to technical competence in the operating room.
Structured VR simulation training wins on being proficiency‐based – by presenting examinees to exercises where pass levels are based on expert results, individual variations in training time and repetitions do not matter: In contrast to time/volume based training, profiencybased training allows for self‐paced practice and goal‐directed learning, giving a consistency of the final results because all examinees are expected to reach the same performance standard.
