FundamentalVR Offering New Facetectomy Procedure Simulation -

FundamentalVR expanded its offerings of orthopedic surgical simulation with a new facetectomy procedure. The company is also introducing the Fundamental Surgery Score system to lend users more reporting and assessment tools to assess individual surgical performance. Facetectomy is the first simulation on the platform to use the scoring system. The procedure lets users repeatedly train with HapticVR technology on removal of the facet joint using a bone nibbler and Kerrison Rongeur. In relevant areas of the procedure, users can make realistic and meaningful choices around instrument use, with the potential to make mistakes and learn correct methods through practice. New eye-tracking capability is also available using the HTC Vive Pro Eye headset. (FundamentalVR, 9/26/19)
