Ample practices are required for a medical student or even a doctor to become a skillful surgeon operating robotic surgery machine, such as the da Vinci Surgical System or Laparoscopy surgery. Yet, the cost and time of existing practice approach are extremely high. Robotic surgery simulators are available only in medical schools or hospitals, as these simulators are bulky and expensive. In addition, availability is also scarce due to excessively high demand over supply. Now, an innovative VR-driven surgery simulation application address this problem by providing the visual experience and tactile feel from operating on 3D organ models through affordable personal VR gear, making practice available to almost every student and doctor.

Smart Surgery Technology (Taipei, Taiwan), has rolled out Sim Surgery, its VR-equipped interactive application that utilizes solution from Ubitus (Tokyo, Japan) to stream high-quality 3D anatomical model to All-In-One VR headsets without needing high computing power device onsite, further reducing the barrier to practice. To enhance the learning experience, Smart Surgery implements an AI system, which can help novice practitioners make accurate judgment of where each body components are.

Ubitus operates the world's best GPU virtualization technology and cloud streaming platform, and is dedicated to providing a superior user experience via its advanced technology. As long as users are connected to a broadband network, they can enjoy AAA gaming experience across various devices, such as smartphones, tablets, game consoles, smart TVs, and personal computers. With innovative GameCloud technology, Ubitus is able to stream interactive media content with an immersive experience on multi-devices for platform operators and digital content developers, to accelerate metaverse popularization with broad applications.

“Working with Ubitus through Microsoft Accelerator Program helps us to take a significant step forward. We can now distribute the system and video we developed over the cloud to all the doctors. We believe the training can be taken not only in medical centers or hospitals, but in any places based on the needs of users. We wish, and will continue to make every effort, for the application to be embraced globally,” said Julie Lee, CEO of Smart Surgery.

“We are extremely excited to be a part of this revolutionary development in medical education and training. By enabling medical students and doctors to practice early in their career and almost as many times as they want, we can be sure that more doctors can perform better and more efficient surgeries than before. This is great for all the patients,” added Wesley Kuo, CEO of Ubitus.
