AI-based 'open orthopaedic surgery simulator' launched in India
MedAchievers Academic Council, a global initiative of MedAchievers, and Labindia Healthcare have launched an 'open orthopaedic surgery simulator' based on artificial intelligence in India. The technology will be available at some medical colleges at undergraduate and post-graduate levels across the country.
AI-based technology will offer hands-on training to young medical graduates. It will give them an experience similar to that of an operation theatre without risking the lives of patients.
Dr Harsha Vardhan, Founder and Managing Director of MedAchievers, said, "The AI-based simulator will be used in spine surgeries, knee surgeries, on basic healing, trauma and other kinds of surgeries. The move will definitely help save millions of lives that unfortunately are lost due to lack of a trained pool of doctors in a specific domain."
"In India, cases of spinal injuries, trauma and similar conditions are very much prevalent and we need to ensure hands-on training with a continuous update and upgrade without hurting patients. With such technologies, we are able to achieve proficiency in the respective domain and eventually increasing pool of trained doctors," he further stated.
