Virtalis holds an exclusive licensing agreement with The University of Bristol to market, install and support the Haptic Cow and Haptic Horse products.
Many of the UK’s leading veterinary schools have installed one or both of these systems. Now, they are being sold all over the world, with recent installations in Germany, China and the US. The systems draw on virtual touch, or haptics, and enable students to carry out virtual rectal and abdominal examinations.
Haptic force feedback technology has been deployed in the Haptic Cow to create a virtual reproductive tract, whilst the Haptic Horse replicates a virtual abdomen. Students interact with the systems within the seemingly empty fibreglass model of the rear half of a cow or horse.
