New haptic platform lets surgeons feel in virtual reality
from Design News
Virtual surgical training is getting an extra layer of immersion that will let trainees actually feel what they're doing. London-based Fundamental VR, makers of a virtual reality training solution called the Fundamental Surgery platform has announced that HaptX Gloves will now be implemented into the platform to provide users with a sense of touch as they navigate medical training simulations. Rather than a self-contained solution, Fundamental VR's solution, branded as a “flight simulator for surgeons” is designed to be equipment agnostic — meaning it is compatible with any VR headset and PC or laptop capable of running VR applications. Fundamental VR said its system is designed to evolve as new hardware innovations, such as the HaptX Gloves hit the market.
