The current model for health professionals education is outdated, relying on lectures, learning professionals, and practice in real clinical settings. Now, as the next generation of experiential learners demands digital tools and self-directed learning, immersive technology platforms are increasingly important.
Enter Osso VR. Osso VR, a virtual reality surgical training technology company, raised $2M in a Seed Round led by SignalFire and Anorak Ventures. Osso VR is an award-winning, clinically-validated surgical training platform designed for surgeons, sales teams, and hospital staff of all skill levels. Their product offers realistic hand-based interactions in an immersive training environment containing cutting-edge procedures and devices.
Founded in 2016, Osso VR previously completed the MedTech Innovator, an accelerator for medical device, digital health, and diagnostic companies.
Ossa VR’s training platform addresses gaps in medical training that the company says leads to increased complication rates for patients as newer and more complex technologies and procedures come to market. The platform addresses the critical deficiency in how providers learn to use complex medical devices by providing realistic, haptic-enhanced, interactions in an immersive training environment. Osso VR is device agnostic, and is compatible with Oculus Rift/Touch and HTC Vive. Osso VR’s surgical training technology provides on-demand, educational experiences that are repeatable, and measurable – and other trainees, such as sales representatives, can experience surgeon level access to the same training content. Through Osso VR’s analytics dashboard, trainees and administrators can receive feedback regarding their run-throughs and guidance to help them reach proficiency.
Using platforms like Osso VR, healthcare companies are accelerating their immersive transformation with virtual and augmented reality.
