Idea Details

Idea Name: Surgeon X
Slogan: Begin to be an Expert
Startup Domain: Education
Abstract:
    Simulator to help medical students and surgeons to get familiar with surgical procedures in virtual environment using leap motion before going into real operation theater,using minimal resources.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Surgeons face problems while getting training that every time there is a need of patient to perform training surgeries the procedure is costly and time consuming just for training purpose.The costs of the simulation training range from 5 to 200 thousand dollars depending on the complexity of it.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Surgeons,practitioners,medical students and teachers at medical institutes needs it to be familiar with surgical procedures and polish their skills in a virtual environment at an affordable cost.Our prototype will help beginners to be an expert by using augmented virtuality.
How will the solution works
    Simulator provieds two options i.e.(Guided/Unguided Surgery).Options regarding surgery e.g wear mask,anesthesia etc occur in our system.User can pick any 3D model of surgical equipment to operate a model of human body.Users hand gestures will be tracked by leap motion sensor.On Applying a cut,pressure pad will sense the pressure in case of wrong cut warning will be shown and severity will be checked.C#,Unity 3D,leap motion ORION beta are used in our solution.LED will show output accurately.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    SMARTSIM and few simulators are working but they are expensive and require a lot of hardware.In Our solution surgeons perform operation by just seeing on screen doing the gestures sensed by leap motion.Students don't need physical equipment or VR box or any complex machinery,making it affordable.
