The new B. Braun VR simulation and training tool was launched with a first application for the OrthoPilot®, a navigation system created by B. Braun’s surgery division Aesculap. The OrthoPilot® supports surgeons during the implantation process of knee and hip prosthetics.
The Aesculap product portfolio includes surgery tools, implants, navigation systems, and cardiology equipment. B. Braun’s product innovations establish novel, user-friendly surgical procedures. In order to digitally simulate surgeries for the healthcare industry, and enable product presentation beyond PowerPoint and videos, a new training tool was envisioned.
NMY’s concept was based on the main criteria of the surgeon’s job profile. Through gamified and turn-based surgery processes, the accuracy of a surgeon’s work is put to the test, while simultaneously challenging their concentration skills. The application motivates users and helps increase understanding for medical equipment. At the same time, using the application is a lot of fun. Intuitive UX design, high technical performance, playful challenges: complicated facts become easy to understand and users show a high learning curve.
Whether it’s medical professionals, students of medicine, doctors or surgeons: the new B. Braun VR training platform is ideal for transmitting and presenting surgical knowledge in a innovative way. The results and polls prove that the target audience is quicker to understand technical content. What’s more, receiving the information has become a lot more enjoyable. Multi-player VR events reduce travel expenses and CO2 emissions while also saving costs ensuing with logistics and staffing. B. Braun is using the full potential of the app for trainings, marketing, and sales purposes.
NMY and B. Braun plan to intensify the immersive experience of the app by introducing haptic elements into the virtual surgery environment.
Try out the new gamification app from B. Braun's training platform: challenge your own surgical skills and perform knee surgery with the Aesculap OrthoPilot® navigation system.
