Rapid PRO


An emerging trend in surgical simulation is the demand for custom systems by medical device manufacturers. This requires surgical simulator companies to provide highly specialized, tailored simulations, at low production numbers, in limited time.

Therefore, this project aims at creating a framework for rapid prototyping of customized systems. The starting point will be a generic simulator core. Various options to quickly extend the latter to specific needs will be addressed, including data-driven simulation methods.
