 Take a Look at the Xron Surgical Simulator

The Altair Robotics Lab at University of Verona, Italy, has come out with a surgical simulator called, Xron.

The company spokesperson said that robotic and traditional laparoscopic procedures can be simulated with this software, which also comes with many training games.


The virtual objects on the screen act just like the laws of physics, and move naturally reacting to instruments as real ones would.

The system is capable of interacting with many input devices and can take advantage of 3D monitors.

The company has invited hospitals and clinics to participate in the beta testing of the software and to do so they need to access the Xron's info page.
