Problem Tech Solves

Tech Brief

Medical advancements are accelerating faster than healthcare providers can keep up with new procedures. While rapid innovation has opened the door to new treatments and improved outcomes, emerging medical technologies are typically more complicated than simpler techniques from the past. Traditional medical training is struggling to keep up with these new challenges affecting a wide variety of stakeholders including surgeons, hospitals, and medical device companies, which in turn affects patients. Worldwide, 5 billion patients lack access to safe surgical care, and 18 million people die annually from preventable surgical conditions according to research published in Lancet. Finding a way to more effectively train surgeons and receive insight into the technical ability of providers is paramount to safely providing patients the care that they need. Virtual reality offers an effective and affordable means to progress surgical training and, for the first time, actually determine skill level and areas for improvement. Osso VR offers the entire surgical way to repeatedly practice and objectively measure performance, even allowing for peer-to-peer comparison. The current time lapse between a traditional training and real surgery leaves surgical teams with little experience handling “low frequency/high urgency” complications. With rapid simulations, as many times as needed, Osso VR creates opportunities to master all scenarios. As a result, patients can be assured that surgery is as safe as possible and that they are receiving the highest-value medical procedures.

Tech Differentiators

This novel immersive training experience results from Osso VR’s unique perspective on making training inspiring and its growing creative team consisting of the world’s largest medical illustration team with alums from Electronic Arts, Microsoft, and Apple. Company engineers, artists, and educators use the best techniques of their trade to optimize patient safety, creating an experience that is accurate, engaging, and educational. For the first time, big-budget film and game studios are part of the medical VR picture. A top-level team with experience in creating some of the most prominent content in entertainment, including films and games, brings unparalleled expertise in human and comparative anatomy to the Osso VR platform. The surgical training modules are clinically accurate and emotionally compelling - a novel approach to preparing an entire generation of medical professionals to train in a new way while improving healthcare outcomes around the world. For example, the virtual experience resembles the look and feel of real tissue more accurately than the cadavers that traditional training uses. Osso VR is driving the adoption of higher value technologies that surgeons may avoid or cast aside after limited and poor training experiences. Virtual reality training democratizes access to surgical education globally as the headsets and platform can be easily set up anytime, anywhere at a much more affordable cost than traditional training options. Osso VR has seen as high as 90 percent cost-savings on traditional training expenses due to cutting travel, the need for cadavers and other large resources.


Research from UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine found VR training on the Osso VR platform improved participants’ overall surgical performance by 230% compared with traditional training methods. As measured by the Global Assessment Five-Point Rating Scale, VR-trained participants completed the procedure an average of 20% faster than the traditionally-trained group. Participants also completed 38% more steps correctly in the procedure-specific checklist. Subsequent findings by researchers at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago – which conducted a randomized, blinded validation study using the Osso VR platform – found that use of virtual reality for surgical training significantly increased procedural accuracy and completion rate, which more than tripled the odds of completing a procedure successfully and demonstrated a 300 percent improvement in accuracy when residents trained in the Osso VR module In a 2022 research study from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine on the value of VR training in surgical technique performance and radiographic accuracy. Led by the Department of Orthopedic Surgery, researchers found that training with VR was subjectively rated higher compared with reading/video methods and had similar performance outcomes compared with training with physical simulation (PS).
