FundamentalVR and CMR Surgical unite to provide the first soft tissue robotics system to offer VR training

In March of 2022, FundamentalVR, the leading virtual reality education platform, partnered with CMR surgical, a leader in global surgical robotics, to develop a VR training program for CMRs Versius® Surgical Robotic System.  The development made it the first soft-tissue surgical robotics system to offer VR training; giving surgical teams increased flexibility to practice their skills.

‘CMR’s Versius is a surgical robot that offers surgeons precision, accuracy, and dexterity to enhance their capabilities, as well as the benefits of an ergonomic environment in which to work. Versius has been designed to be portable, modular and flexible and provides freedom of port placement to best suit the needs of each patient. This allows surgeons to operate the way they did laparoscopically but with wristed instruments and all the benefits of robotic surgery. Versius enables surgeons to perform more minimal access surgery, so that more patients can have access to the highest quality of surgical care. The practical, innovative technology integrates seamlessly into workflows and resets expectations of modern robotic surgery.’

Today, combined with FundamentalVR’s, Fundamental Surgery platform CMR can now offer a unique training solution for surgeons and their surgical teams, known as Versius Virtual Reality – it compromises of a wireless headset that doesn’t require connecting to a PC, the expertise of the CMR robotic platform and the Fundamental Surgery software technology. Combined it is possible for Versius Virtual Reality to mimic the real-life environment of an operating room, simulating a lifelike and immersive experience where users are guided through learning objectives by a virtual assistant to support them at every step.

The new Versius Virtual Reality complements the existing CMR Surgical proficiency-based professional education program for Versius, including the Versius Trainer and remote learning options. Adding a virtual reality element now allows surgeons, nurses, and the entire surgical team to develop their skills when and where it’s convenient for them.

About Fundamental Surgery

FundamentalVR created Fundamental Surgery, the world’s first scalable medical simulation platform to combine virtual reality and haptics with data, artificial intelligence, and multimodal learning. Its patented HapticVRTM technology mimics the physical touch of surgical actions, which allows users to experience the sights, sounds, and physical sensations of real-life surgery. Scalable and hardware agnostic, the platform immerses users in a controlled training environment that lowers the surgical risk to patients.
