New York, USA: The New York University and ORamaVR received the prestigious AAHKS Fare Grant Award on May 8th during the AAHKS Spring meeting, for their joined groundbreaking clinical study. The purpose of this study is to assess the skill transfer, educational value, and validity of a virtual reality (VR) surgical simulator for total hip arthroplasty.

“This ground-breaking, large-scale clinical study aims to establish for the first time in the bibliography clear % gains via VR medical simulation in a) training time reduction b) success rates and c) training cost reduction with commodity VR hardware” – Prof. Eleftherios Tsiridis, ORamaVR CMO
