The European Knowledge Alliance for Innovative Education of Surgical and Interventional Skills (EASIER) proposes an innovative approach for surgical and interventional teaching and learning based on technology-enhanced learning. EASIER develops an innovative pedagogically-supported platform for surgical and interventional multi-skills education..
S4Game aims to provide health professionals with an innovative approach to acquire and develop soft skills to foster their professional development. In this regard, a handbook and an immersive SG based on VR technologies will be produced. Their main learning objective is the acquisition of soft skills required during work in an operating room, such as communication, teamwork or leadership.
eCapture3D is a leading image analysis and processing company whose technology allows users to generate 3D models using all types of cameras, including smartphones, obtain spectral 3D models using hyperspectral cameras, and recognize objects and people in 2D images using AI. In the project, this company will work on the development of semi-automatic modelling tools for training purposes in medicine and surgery and will be responsible for leading the WP9 of exploitation
MIS-SIM (Minimally Invasive Surgery Simulator Scenario Editor) is an innovative environment for medical content creators/mentors. MIS-SIM is a VR simulator that allows users to create and share virtual tasks, personalised to the training needs of learners. The current version of the MIS- SIM scenario editor will be expanded to cover interventional techniques, and integrated on the training schedules of two leading European surgical institutions through a pioneer pilot programme. This will include training activities to: (1) teach mentors how to harness the potential of MIS-SIM to create effective learning scenarios; (2) teach residents and surgeons in CME skills in MIS-SIM-based courses; (3) empower medical professionals on designing learning technologies in the hospital.
The Operating Room of the Future is representing an excellent cooperation between St. Olavs hospital, Trondheim University Hospital and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway.
NorMIT is an infrastructure that will contribute to increased research and innovation in medical technology with an emphasis on minimally invasive and image-guided therapy. This is a collaboration between the Operating Room of the Future (FOR) at St. Olav’s Hospital in Trondheim and the Intervention Centre at Oslo University Hospital (OUS). The operating theatres are physically located in Trondheim and Oslo.
The Norwegian National Advisory Unit for Ultrasound and Image-Guided Therapy was established in 2011, the precursors were 3 centers (neuro, endovascular, laparoscopy), established in 1996. In the Unit USIGT, surgeons, engineers and scientists in Trondheim are collaborating closely in a unique way to improve current surgical methods and to develop new techniques for minimally invasive surgery, using ultrasound and image-guidance technology, like tracking technologies and advanced visualization. For patients this mean safer operations and faster recovery.
A web platform to generate 3D models using photos or videos taken by any camera, including smartphones, where the 3D model can be created in less than ten minutes. It is a web platform user-friendly and without the need of previous knowledge about the technologies used. These technologies will allow the generation of 3D models from endoscopic cameras and laparoscopic procedures as a result of the MIREIA project.
