Becoming a professional medical doctor is a long-term process that requires not just deep lexical knowledge and a wide understanding of the functions and malfunctions of the human body, but good manual skills too.
During medical skill-training practices, doctors’ manual skills can be improved resulting in the decreasement of the possibility of harming patients through invasive procedures and avoiding adverse events. This practice period may take a long time as can be represented on a learning curve. Using realistic and anatomically accurate human phantom models gives the required manual skills before performing any intervention on the actual living patient.
Currently, skill training is time-consuming and requires professional staff to evaluate the manual capabilities, because of the lack of objective indicators. AR-guided skill training offers a solution to this problem, as it provides doctors and surgeons with a range of additional information, feed-backs and recommendations. This may allow them to get evaluated by AI on the quality and accuracy of the performed task based on objective indicators with the benefits of Augmented Reality.
We offer a solution that supports skill training using Augmented Reality guidance. The robustness of our application ensures that a wide range of medical and surgical scenarios and procedures can be practised, ensuring that patients are treated manually by highly experienced and trained, professional doctors. Using HoloSapiens, the time-consuming learning curve can be shortened and highly efficient.
The following manual skills-training kits can be obtained through HoloSapines:
- IV, arterial needle insertion, central vein cannulation
- Surgical incision and suturing practices
- Plastic surgery incision planning and training, flap surgery, skin grafts and tissue expansion
- Epidural, spinal needle insertion, cannulation
- Anastomose techniques (vascular surgery, colo-proctology)
- Dental techniques
