The Virtual Reality Surgery Simulator (VRSS) project aims to reduce the time and cost required to train surgeons by using virtual reality surgical simulation training in conjunction with remote real-time supervision of surgical trainees.
The VRSS project utilizes an immersive virtual reality simulation to help surgical trainees acquire the psychomotor skills, sensory acuity, and cognitive planning required to perform complex surgical tasks. When combined with clinical training, virtual reality technology has the potential to significantly reduce the time and cost of achieving surgical proficiency in resource-constrained settings.
