The future of neurosurgical training

NeuroVR™ is the world's most advanced virtual reality neurosurgery simulator. Today's neurosurgery residents face time restrictions in acquiring technical skills and proficiencies before they operate on real patients. Practicing neurosurgeons are challenged to meet the growing certification requirements and master new techniques. With NeuroVR, both residents and surgeons can practice open cranial and endoscopic brain surgery skills and procedures in a realistic training environment.

NeuroVR Features

With lifelike renderings of brain tissue, blood vessels and tumors, realistic sounds and tactile feedback, NeuroVR elevates neurosurgery training to a new level. Other features include: 

  • Extensive range of exercises derived from actual patient images
  • More than 30 training modules covering essential skills through advanced procedures
  • Ability to switch between stereoscopic microscope view and 2D indirect endoscopic view
  • Automatic recognition as you switch instruments during exercises
  • Performance feedback including procedure duration, errors and instrument force
  • Validated in published clinical studies (as NeuroTouch project)

Validated simulation training for neurosurgery

In 2008, the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) initiated the NeuroTouch (now known as NeuroVR) research project to deliver simulation-based education for neurosurgery.  Since its inception, more than 15 teaching hospitals around the world have integrated the NeuroVR into their resident training programs. They have developed and validated new training modules that allow neurosurgery residents to practice in a risk-free environment. In 2016, CAE Healthcare gained exclusive rights to sell and distribute the NeuroVR simulator worldwide.
