The ORSIM has been designed as an affordable solution to address an urgent need to improve bronchoscopy training. We have developed a high quality, virtual reality, bronchoscopy simulator that is small, portable and capable of running off a laptop. This combined with the latest computer graphics and simulation technology takes hands-on experience to a new dimension.
Our talented development team includes software engineers, 3-D graphics and user interface experts, simulator designers, electronics engineers and industrial designers. The development has been directed by an anesthesiologist who specialises in airway management and flexible bronchoscopy.
Small, smart & portable.
The ORSIM consists of three main parts: a replica video bronchoscope, a desktop sensor and a dedicated laptop with software program.
The replica video bronchoscope is connected to the small desktop sensor. The sensor registers movement of the insertion tube and translates this to a three-dimensional virtual airway displayed through the software on the laptop screen. The user can progress through a range of upper and lower airway scenarios receiving instant feedback as well as scoring metrics, recording and play-back.
The ORSIM provides comprehensive training for a common diagnostic procedure, which until now has required lengthy specialist training. Based on its size, simplicity and economy, it is suitable for large training organizations as well as individual practices.
