RealSpine Demonstration at INSIMED in Colombia
In a three-hour meeting with medical device companies on 30. November 2018, we presented our simulation system for the lumbar spine RealSpine. The orthopedist Dr. Ricardo Restrepo performed a discectomy on RealSpine and answered questions about the usage and functionality of RealSpine. He particularly emphasized the realistic simulation of the anatomical structures and the haptic of the simulation system and the diverse application possibilities for the training of residents and surgical consultants.
