Johnson & Johnson is showcasing cutting-edge technologies – including virtual reality surgical training – at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, NV, this week. The goal is to demonstrate how science and technology are delivering personalized patient care and better outcomes.
Tim Mauri, Director, Worldwide Professional Education, Technical Innovation, for Global Education Solutions, was in the J&J suite to take CES attendees and members of the media through a new training module that allows surgeons to experience a fully simulated surgery from start to finish in a virtual operating room. This type of training can help ease the transfer of skills and familiarize surgeons with instruments and procedures.
"We've had lots of interest in the module as tech reporters were curious about putting on a headset and seeing exactly what it's like for surgeons to learn and rehearse virtually at their own pace," Tim explains. "Many have used words like realistic, engaging and even cool to describe their experience in this computer-generated environment."
A strategic plan is in development to make this training module accessible to surgeons around the world in 2018. It will be first available for use at the Johnson & Johnson Institute in Hamburg, Germany.
