ImmersiveTouch brings patient images to life with augmented and virtual reality imaging.

ImmersiveTouch is a surgical virtual reality (VR) imaging platform that allows surgeons to see, feel and experience minimally invasive surgical pathways to improve surgical precision and patient outcomes.

Haptic force feedback and 3D visualization create the world’s only medical “flight simulator” with a sense of touch.

It’s time to experience the most comprehensive surgical environment utilizing augmented and virtual reality.

Technology and Services

Find out how we create a comprehensive surgical environment using augmented and virtual reality.

A raw image is first obtained from scans

Patient specific CT/MRI scans are uploaded into the ImmersiveTouch cloud. The scans are then reconstructed into 3D virtual reality.

Haptic and tactile feedback is then added

Haptic and tactile feedback is added to the VR reconstruction to replicate surgical touch and feel of the patient’s anatomy. The surgeon has the option to rehearse/teach different minimally invasive surgical pathways.

The final model is then stored on the cloud

ImmersiveTouch expands patient satisfaction, resident proficiency, and operating room utilization. Every VR reconstructed case is stored in the ImmersiveTouch case library for further utilization, collaboration and data analytics.
