Orthopaedic Simulation

Practice makes perfect

Studies have shown that surgeons who have trained with a simulator make fewer mistakes and operate faster. By using our orthopedic simulator systems, TraumaVision® and ArthroVision®, you can improve clinical outcomes, reduce costs, and ultimately – improve patient safety. 

Swemac Simulation has exceptional experience in developing and using simulators, both for training orthopaedic surgeons and developing our own products within fracture treatment. Our simulator team consists of developers, programmers, and animators which means that we can offer both standardized simulators as well as customized solutions and training modules.

TraumaVision is a medical virtual reality simulator designed for simulating orthopaedic trauma surgeries such as fixation of hip fractures and spinal surgery.

TraumaVision includes simulated views of the patient, simulated fluoroscopy, haptic feedback of instruments interacting with tissue and drilling into different bone layers. The system measures numerous performance metrics during a simulated surgery.

The following training modules are available:

Basic Training:
Drill Skills, Cannulated Screws, Dynamic Hip Screw, Fluoroscopy Training

Full Surgical Procedures:
Femoral Neck Fracture, Trochanteric Fracture, Subtrochanteric Fracture, Femoral Shaft Fracture, Pelvis Fracture, Spinal Surgery, Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis, Motec Wrist Prosthesis

ArthroVision is a virtual reality simulator designed to teach basic arthroscopy skills. It is designed as an arthroscopy box trainer and includes haptic force feedback in order to enhance the experience and training environment for the operator. Each training module offers different options such as severity and the system measures numerous parameters.

The learning curve may be designed so the operator starts with simple tasks and finishes with those that are more difficult. ArthroVision can be used to train residents and junior surgeons in basic skills of arthroscopy prior to more advanced surgical skills.

The following training modules are available:

  • Steady Camera and Telescoping
  • Periscoping 1 – Targets in Circle
  • Track a Moving Target
  • Deliberate Linear Scope Motion
  • Track and Probe a Moving Target
  • Periscoping 2 – Scope Around Target
  • Measuring with the Probe
  • Steady Camera, Telescoping and Probing

"Virtual-reality training could improve initial skills, and a simulation-based test would make it possible to ensure basic competency of junior surgeons before they proceed to supervised practice on patients"
