Is The Oculus Quest Powerful Enough to Deliver Portable Surgical Simulations?

For immediate release: 7:00 AM CST – 10/15/19 – St. Paul MN”

Untethered VR Surgical Solutions Turns VR From a Training Tool into a Marketing Tool

Medical animation and surgical simulation developer, Ghost Productions, Inc. has completed feasibility testing on the Oculus Quest cordless virtual reality headset and the results are promising. Their tests challenged the medical rendering capabilities of the wireless VR headset and while it was not capable of delivering photo-realistic imagery it could interact with surgical anatomy in real time. These findings allow for a profound shift in VR’s adoption within the medical industry that has been slow to take advantage of the many benefits VR’s simulation-based training can provide.

real life training in hospital wing

Extensive flight simulator training sessions are required for airline pilots before they are even allowed onboard an actual aircraft. The proven success of simulation-based trainings has led to it becoming a training requirement in nearly all industries where mission critical human errors are a likely cause of injuries, fatalities, or catastrophic loss. Unfortunately, an industry that is suffering from a significant shortage of simulation-based training programs and beleaguered by human errors that are responsible for as many as 250,000 deaths and costing the economy as much as $1 trillion annually in the U.S. alone.
