Meet VirtaTed: Fast, fun and efficient progress on your learning curve

Dear partners, clients, friends and innovation enthusiasts

We are launching the FAST module for basic arthroscopy training with the help of our latest team member: VirtaTed. He makes learning easy and fun, and supports you in enhancing your skills.

Also the other new team members in 2014 present themselves, and joined a simulator competition on the latest VirtaMed ArthroS™ release.

Enjoy reading, and we wish you a happy holiday season!

Meet VirtaTed 

VirtaTed guides you through our new FAST module (Fundamentals of Arthroscopic Surgery Training). It runs on the Sawbones workstation developed under the guidance of AANA and an ABOS task force. 
Let VirtaTed help you to improve your triangulation skills, or even play some Tetris®!

ArthroS™: Resident training

The Baylor College of Medicine has integrated our ArthroS™ simulator into their residency curriculum. 
Deborah Taylor, Assistant Director of the Simulation Center, shares her experiences with the VirtaMed team and the training capabilities of the simulator.

We joined the team in 2014

The VirtaMed team grew across all departments. Welcome on board everybody!
We asked them why they joined, and tested their surgical skills on the new ArthroS™ FAST module.
