Share Your Science: Orthopedic Virtual Reality Surgical Simulation Platform

Justin Barad, CEO of OSSO VR shares how they are using NVIDIA GPUs and the latest virtual reality technologies to create a low-cost immersive surgical simulator designed to train surgeons to use orthopedic devices.

Barad, a trained orthopedic surgeon, shares how students are graduating from medical schools without learning how to do certain procedures and at times, surgeons are performing a particular procedure for their first time on an actual patient. He adds how virtual reality simulators are critical in helping the skillset of surgeons.

OSSO VR was also one of the eight startups that competed in the VR Showcase at GTC’s Emerging Companies Summit.
