FundamentalVR expands into the endovascular space

The company also offers CollaborationVR, a virtual space designed for healthcare professionals to accelerate procedural and product adoption together.

FundamentalVR - Endovascular

FundamentalVR announced the addition of endovascular surgery to its expanding suite of haptic surgical training procedures. Alongside this capability for new endovascular procedures, the company also offers CollaborationVR, a personalized virtual space with unlimited capacity specifically designed for healthcare professionals to meet and accelerate procedural and product adoption together.

How does it work?

A leading player in surgical education, FundamentalVR’s simulations are delivered through its Fundamental Surgery platform. The platform is powered by the company’s unique HapticVR technology which mimics the physical cues of surgical actions, tools, and tissue textures felt in real-life surgery. FundamentalVR provides a gold standard of immersive surgical training using these technologies, and their immersive learning platform has already delivered success for medical device and pharmaceutical companies across orthopedics, general surgery, robotics, and ophthalmology.

In creating high-fidelity simulations for a variety of specialisms, the platform is enabling medical institutions and life science organizations to remotely train personnel en masse without having to compromise on quality. By leveraging CollaborationVR, HapticVR and other features on the Fundamental Surgery platform, FundamentalVR ensures that personnel are given the dynamic environment needed to explore patient cases, anatomy, devices, procedures and more to achieve their learning goals. Including implementing virtual products, which customers can build as direct replicas of real-life devices.

With such credentials, the Fundamental Surgery platform is well equipped to simulate Image-Guided Interventional procedures all with full haptic feedback and high-resolution graphics. Examples include Acute Ischemic Stroke, EVAR, Cardiac Rhythm Management, Coronary Interventions, and Carotid Interventions.

By creating low-cost, “pre-human” immersive simulations, FundamentalVR dramatically accelerates the transfer of skills and the adoption of new procedures, tools, and equipment at scale and more economically than ever before.

On the record

“Our solutions can be adapted to multiple procedures and tools and remain the only medical VR education platform accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons” says Richard Vincent, co-founder and CEO of FundamentalVR.
