The systems draw on virtual touch to enable students to carry out virtual rectal and abdominal examinations. Haptic force feedback technology create a virtual reproductive tract and abdomen.
Quick set-up and good visibility lead to improved teaching and feedback.
Fewer invasive examinations and those that are being conducted by better prepared students.
Delivers ‘learning by experience’ through interaction with a realistic reproduction of the abdominal anatomy.
Thousands of students have used the haptic cow as part of their training since its launch. Significant improvements in outcomes for students, as identified in peer reviewed journals.
Cow and horse models available. The Haptic Cow emulates the virtual reproductive tract, whilst the Haptic Horse replicates a virtual abdomen.
Installed in leading veterinary schools globally
“The virtual environment of the Haptic Cow simulates the entire bovine reproductive tract, including models of the cervix, uterus and ovaries, with a wide range of fertility cases, pregnancies and some examples of pathology.”
The haptics device integrated into the systems is the Geomagic® Phantom® Premium™. This instrument makes it possible for users to suspend their disbelief and make a touching and palpating virtual object highly realistic.
In addition, because the animal’s organs are visible on the computer monitor, the instructor can see exactly what the student is doing and direct their movements, something that isn’t possible with a real animal.
