Advances in Surgical Simulation: Unique Approaches to Developing Anatomy Models for Device Evaluation | Cory Kimball | Omar Vakharia

This will be an interactive lab where participants will have the ability to experience various types of anatomical simulators in a replicated surgical use environment.  Cory Kimball, IDSA, and Omar Vakharia, IDSA, of Ethicon’s Industrial Design/Human Factors Center of Excellence—a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson—will discuss the techniques utilized to test medical product concepts. 

Learn how patient imaging data is utilized to create virtual simulators, inanimate models and animate adaptations to replicate human anatomy— methods proven to reduce device use error, shorten product development time and minimize the need for in vivo testing.
