PrecisionOS to provide SIGN Fracture Care with Virtual Reality Orthopedic Training For Doctors
PrecisionOS, a provider of virtual reality (VR) training for orthopedic surgeons announced in August 2021 that it will be providing SIGN Fracture Care, a global nonprofit humanitarian organization, with training for doctors doing orthopedic surgery in low-resource countries, helping to improving outcomes for patients with severe bone fractures and bone injuries.
Epic Games provided financial assistance through its Epic MegaGrants program, aiding in the development of the Unreal Engine-powered VR training solution; Facebook donated Oculus Quest 2 Headsets; and PrecisionOS created a training module that focuses on improving orthopedic fracture care.
PrecisionOS’s VR training programs are built for surgeons and based on the learning theory of Deliberate Practice. The modules permit individual decision making, allowing trainees to try different approaches to a procedure and giving them performance and technical feedback until they are totally comfortable performing the procedure – as opposed to having trainees just do rote practice, which instead involves memorization through repetition.
