SimQuest Develops World's First Platform for Open Surgical Simulation
Date:3/22/2011

SILVER SPRING, Md., March 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- SimQuest LLC, a leading developer of technology-assisted education and training, has developed the first platform for open-incision surgical simulation, which will enable surgeons to practice open surgical techniques with no risk to patients. The platform will allow surgeons to practice their skills in an environment that allows for errors and provide objective feedback on performance.

This is an important step forward in surgical training because open surgery still accounts for the overwhelming majority of all operations performed in the United States despite advances in laparoscopic/minimally invasive surgery (MIS). Further, the current generation of simulators falls far short of providing adequate open surgical training. Simulation of open-incision surgery is significantly more difficult than simulating (MIS) because the surgical field and breadth of possible actions for open surgery is considerably more diverse than for MIS.

SimQuest developed three important elements of the open-incision surgical simulation platform with funding from the National Institute of Standards and Technology Advanced Technology Program (NIST ATP) including simulation that allows for physically precise real-time behavior of tissue; the Open Surgery Haptic Device, a seven degree-of-freedom (7DOF) haptics interface; and a tool chain similar to those used in computer games, which enables surgical simulation training case scenarios and other content to be created by teachers and trainers.

The NIST program enabled SimQuest to produce unique technology that will enable real-time immersive virtual reality simulation of open surgical procedures to become a cost-effective reality for both training and surgical rehearsal. These technologies will have a dramatic impact upon future generations of healthcare practitioners by increasing patient safety; reducing reliance on live tissue training (human and animal); and en
