Osso VR brings incredible Virtual Reality training to the medical profession

Meet Osso VR. They are creating an immersive surgical simulator designed to train surgeons. Their focus is VR and surgical training with initial focus on orthopedic devices. And the objective is to provide virtual reality “how to” training to doctors.

Osso VR is using virtual reality to revolutionize the way surgeons are trained to show them how to use surgical devices and implants with a low-cost, fully immersive surgical VR simulator. The solution, designed by a team of physicians and developers, uses an off-the-shelf VR headset and hand-tracking technology.

OssoVR’s founder, Justin Barad, is a doctor himself and comes from the industry. His team are a mix of developers and doctors who have come together to build a VR surgical simulator.

And no this isn’t some some of alien simulator or game although you can find many alien simulators out there for surgical purposes.

This is really an application designed to enable doctors to get the best possible training before they operate on people rather than learning on them.
