NuVasive is launching a virtual reality (VR) training module for the NuVasive X360® system to complement its market-leading Clinical Professional Development (CPD) program.
In collaboration with PrecisionOS, developers of a medical-grade VR™ learning platform, the NuVasive X360 VR training module integrates the company's lateral approach to single-position spine surgery, which includes XLIF®, XALIF™ and XFixation™, into a virtual simulation of the procedural workflow.
PrecisionOS is reportedly the only independently validated VR simulation provider on the orthopedic surgery market. The company's novel approach to VR education has been proven in several randomized research controlled studies to reduce errors and enhance the knowledge of the user.
"Our collaboration with PrecisionOS reiterates our long-standing commitment to surgeon training and education to help further the adoption of less invasive surgical procedures like X360," said Massimo Calafiore, Chief Commercial Officer at NuVasive. "The integration of VR learning with our market-leading CPD and sales training programs enhance how we train our surgeon partners and sales teams as we work together to transform surgery, advance care, and change patient lives."
