Next Generation of Surgical Simulators for Surgical Planning, Training and Education
The aim of the project "Next Generation of Surgical Simulators for Surgical Planning, Training and Education" is to prepare an EU application in the field of "Health, demographic change and well-being". The aim is to apply for a Marie-Sklodowska Curie action, more precisely an ITN (Innovative Training Network). The applicants share the opinion that the improvement of surgical training is becoming more and more important in surgery. As patients get older, these procedures often become more complex and risky. Surgical simulators on today's market cannot reflect the reality and complexity of surgery, nor are they at an acceptable price level. The planned EU project aims precisely at this problem. An open-source framework for the simulation of surgical interventions is to be developed, which can be extended by research institutions and companies and used scientifically and commercially.
