Innovative surgical simulation systems

Based on CT or MRI data, we develop innovative simulation systems for surgical training, which are characterised by anatomically realistic haptic and optic. Through the interdisciplinary collaboration of researchers from different areas, new findings from engineering, medicine, mathematics, product design, computer science and computer technology can be optimally integrated into the design and development of our simulation systems.

The following simulators were developed by ISTT:

  • RealSpine, a mechatronic simulation system for the training of interventions on the lumbar spine
  • FluoroSim, a simulation system for the simulation of intra-operative fluoroscopy
  • Mechatronic simulation system for panendoscopy
  • Hybrid-Simulator for aortic valve replacement
  • Kheiron Training System, a serious game (Virtual-Reality-Simulator) for laparoscopic surgery
