FundamentalVR's Surgery Simulation Will Make You Thank God for Trained Surgeons

Quick Summary

FundamentalVR said that the pandemic accelerated interest in its platform even further since healthcare workers worldwide were forced to explore remote learning and training options.

That system, Fundamental says, “delivers full kinesthetic force feedback haptics into a variety of handheld devices,” which can range from hand held instruments like a drill or pen, or even haptic feedback gloves.

Founded in London in 2015, FundamentalVR currently offers its platform in teaching hospitals in more than 30 countries and has received accreditations from the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and the Royal College of Surgeons of England for its orthopedic simulations.
