Virtalis has always been a pioneer in bringing VR technology to the medical market. Over a decade ago, we developed the world’s first keyhole surgery training system, MistVR, which was rolled out across Europe. VR systems enable trainers and students to carry out repeatable, measureable training in a risk-free environment.
Our work with Haptic Cow pioneer, Sarah Baillie at the Royal Veterinary College brought haptics, or virtual touch, to a wider audience for the
first time. We think that there are an almost infinite number of applications that can benefit from this technology.
Virtalis partnered with Vertual, a spin-out company from the University of Hull, in the largest roll out of VR systems ever seen in the UK. Our ActiveWall systems when combined with VERT (Virtual Environment Radiotherapy Training) software are revolutionising the way in which radiotherapists are trained. This technology is now being made available to the rest of the world, with interest coming from around
We have a strong Academic community using VR products (e.g. tracking devices, head-mounted displays etc) for medical research and we are able to offer a wide portfolio to choose the right tool for the job. See our Products section.
"Never having seen VR, I was completely bowled over by the power of this technology. Even
our more technologically savvy students admit to being excited by the immersive element of VERT."
