Precision OS Technology has carried out the first-ever and largest virtual reality training event of its kind for medical device sales reps.

Held last month, the event brought together more than 300 medical device representatives who simultaneously accessed the training module on a complex surgical procedure.

The Precision OS training uses the mobile Oculus Quest and can be completed anywhere at anytime. Participants on the Precision OS platform can complete this multistep procedure in less than 30 minutes.

“Our educational approach has always been to deliver content that includes and goes beyond the implant,” said Dr. Danny Goel, a practicing orthopedic surgeon and Chief Executive Officer, Precision OS.

“When considering how best to influence care and the transfer of appropriate knowledge to care providers, we must think along different models of education. Given these representatives provide an important role in the operating room, equipping them with advanced skills, implant comprehension and support capabilities efficiently and effectively is critical during multistep implantation of devices.”

The virtual reality educational modules built by Precision OS provide a much-needed alternative to the time-intensive and costly exercises associated with traditional sales training. These reps have also historically resorted to flying to cadaver labs, listening to lectures, utilizing non-interactive training sessions via tablet and learning on-the-job during actual cases.

Vancouver’s Precision OS was founded by a team of clinical orthopedic surgeons and game developers to create the most relevant and applicable medical-grade-VR-simulation experience.
