Medical Modeling and Simulation

When medical modeling and simulation was a new field, it required clinical validations and evaluation to determine its effectiveness in a training environment. Now, it is an accepted and valued component of medical education. IVIR’s team members have nearly 100 years of comprehensive business experience in modeling and simulation. This accounts for our continuous success and ongoing position as an innovator in this dynamic field.

Significant technological advances have made what was once believed to be impossible, achievable. These advances provide high fidelity mannequins to replicate human anatomy, use haptics to simulate the feel of surgical tasks and life-like visualizations of medical procedures.
Now with the addition of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), the learner is fully immersed in a simulated environment. At IVIR, we use a concurrent and spiral engineering approach to research and see the potential solutions that surround us and optimize these opportunities.

  • Medical Modeling and Simulation have three core elements:
  • Anatomical representations
  • Mathematical descriptions of physiology
  • Physical instantiations for psychomotor interventions
