Dear partners, clients, friends and innovation enthusiasts

VirtaMed captures the world of movies: Finally, you can take a quick look behind the scenes, learn something about the history of our young company, and how it all came together. Also, some of our partners and experienced physicians have a word on how they apply virtual reality surgical simulation in their daily life.
