Innovations in the medical sector are indispensable to enhance care for everyone. In the digital age, Touch Surgery provides surgeons with an interactive surgical simulator.
Touch Surgery interactive surgical simulator is a revolution for medical care which enables surgeons to train and learn thanks to the power of AI, data and visualization.
The realistic and detailed videos help surgeons in every step of a procedure. Preparing operations, this innovative tool helps doctors to train before actually performing the act.
Touch Surgery’s team is very diversified from surgical experts and AI engineers to visual artists.
The company has created an easy-to-use app that includes a surgical video and a data platform with easy access and easy to share surgeon videos, as well as a personalized support performance improvement.
This start-up has already received awards and is already used by some hospitals and students to quickly learn how to perform surgery and more specifically learn procedures, test their knowledge, and rehearse for surgery. The next steps of this technology include real-time, dynamic AI for the operating room.
Some research has proven that Touch Surgery has a positive impact on, for example, students’ training. In fact, over a 25 questions exam, a group of students has done two exams. The first exam without specific training showed that there was no difference between the students. For the second exam, students were asked to choose between being trained for 45 minutes thanks to the Touch Surgery app or thanks to the text-based resources. In the second test, there was a statistically significant difference in the two groups after the 45 minutes preparation session.
