A pilot study was undertaken by Fundamental Surgery’s Spinal Pedicle Screw simulation. 19 Participants ranging from trainees to consultants trialed the pedicle screw haptically enabled virtual reality simulation to assess the validity of the simulation and provide feedback to aid in improving the educational platform.

The results demonstrate very high positive ratings for both face validity and product value of the pedicle screw placement simulation by Fundamental Surgery.

In summary, this pilot study demonstrated that the Pedicle Screw Haptic VR Simulation by Fundamental Surgery provides a valid surgical simulation that can enhance the surgical confidence of the surgeon who regularly uses the simulation.
