Combining Manikin and VR Simulation Technologies to Improve Clinical Outcomes
Preparing clinicians for treating trauma patients can be challenging. Patient manikins are limited in versatility of clinical scenarios and patient anatomies covered, unable to track all trainee actions and require substantial investment. Training with existing immersive VR simulators lacks instrument operation realism and tactile feedback. Both types of simulators do not track instrument operation inside the patient’s body.
Surgical Science’s new TraumaVR simulator overcomes these challenges by combining a manikin and instruments with immersive VR simulation. This provides trainees with an unprecedented training opportunity of psychomotor (motor skills) and cognitive knowledge and skill acquisition in airway management. With the most realistic virtual reality environment, it embeds trainees in the stressful situation, unlike any other simulator.
