  • It focuses on small and medium-sized enterprises that invest a substantial part of their revenues in research and development, certainly the case for VirtaMed..
  • The orthopedics and sports medicine department at CHL as the project partner brings necessary clinical experience to steer the project from the medical side..
  • The team has published numerous scientific publications in internationally recognized journals and was among the first that developed and described techniques to perform advanced meniscus repair..

  • It takes extensive training to master the surgical techniques required for advanced meniscal repair procedures, which have only been developed in recent years..
  • To allow for secure repair and low complication rates, it is crucial to provide training simulators to practice safely and without harming patients..
  • The next generation of surgeons will certainly use mixed reality simulation training in a systematic way in their training, and we see VirtaMed as the partner of choice to achieve this.”…
