CAE Healthcare, Inc. Key Developments
CAE Healthcare Launches Neurosurgery Simulator in Partnership with the National Research Council of Canada
Jan 18 16
CAE Healthcare announced the launch of NeuroVR™, a neurosurgery simulator that offers the world's most realistic training environment for open cranial and endoscopic brain surgery procedures. Developed by the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) in collaboration with clinicians from teaching hospitals in Canada, the U.S., Europe and Asia, the simulator is currently in use at 15 sites and has been validated in published clinical studies. NeuroVR currently includes 37 training modules covering instrument handling, endoscopy for cranial procedures and fundamental skills such as tumor resection, tumor debulking and hemostasis. The simulator allows a learner to practise neurosurgery and provides realistic visual and tactile feedback for different types of tissues. Through licensing and development agreements, CAE Healthcare has been granted exclusive rights by NRC to sell and distribute the simulator, and will collaborate with NRC to develop additional training modules within the neurosurgery field. The National Research Council initiated the NeuroTouch™ - now known as NeuroVR - research project in collaboration with teaching hospitals throughout Canada in 2008, including founding members McGill University Health Centre and the University of Toronto Health Network. Designed for safe practice of low-frequency, high-risk surgeries, NeuroVR also captures performance metrics, and could provide a reliable assessment tool for neurosurgical skills including the safety, quality and efficiency of open cranial and endoscopic procedures.
CAE Healthcare Expands Distributor Agreement with Strategic Operations for Medical Simulation Trauma Surgical Suits
Jan 16 16
CAE Healthcare announced that it now has secured the rights to distribute the Strategic Operations (STOPS) Surgical Cut Suit and other simulation training products in the United States. Following the announcement in September that the company had gained worldwide distribution rights outside the U.S., the two companies expanded their partnership to give CAE Healthcare distribution rights for U.S. civilian training centers and for U.S. military customers. Designed for point-of-injury care, the Surgical Cut Suit and Emergency Medical Services/Tactical Combat Casualty Care (EMS/TCCC) Cut Suit vest can be worn by an actor or zipped around a manikin to simulate traumatic, life-threatening injuries. The Cut Suits allow first responders and physicians to practice performing surgical and emergency procedures in real time.
CAE Healthcare Releases First Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Training Model for Joint Injections of the Knee
Dec 4 15
CAE Healthcare announced that it has created the first training model for ultrasound-guided evaluation and procedures for knee conditions and injuries. The CAE Blue Phantom Musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound training model will allow clinicians in training and certified healthcare providers to practice assessment exams and repeated needle procedures in a safe environment before scanning real patients. The ultra-durable ultrasound model incorporates all of the anatomy required to teach and practice the psychomotor skills associated with joint injections and with aspirations associated with rheumatologic conditions. It was designed for both ultrasound-guided and landmark-based procedural training. Practitioners use ultrasound on the knee to view bones, nerves, tendons, ligaments and fluid in order to diagnose arthritis, tendon tears, masses, lesions and complications of surgical procedures. For patients, ultrasound provides better comfort, less exposure to radiation and lower cost than computed tomography (CT) scans or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Blue Phantom models are made of patented SimulexUS tissue, which has proven to be self-sealing through 1,000 or more needle sticks. The models simulate the acoustic properties of human tissue and are designed for practice with real ultrasound machines. Based on digital scans of the knee, the Blue Phantom MSK ultrasound model includes practice cases with different sizes of effusions, cases requiring aspiration (fluid removal), anesthesia injection and more.
