NuVasive (NSDQ:NUVA) announced today that it will release a virtual reality (VR) training module for its NuVasive X360 system.
San Diego–based NuVasive said in a news release that the launch of the cutting-edge training module complements its market-leading clinical professional development (CPD) program.
The NuVasive X360 VR training module — developed in collaboration with PrecisionOS — integrates NuVasive’s comprehensive lateral approach to single-position spine surgery, which includes XLIF, XALIF and XFixation. The idea is to provide a virtual simulation of the procedural workflow to offer remote access to hands-on learning experiences with the company’s surgical techniques.
“Our collaboration with PrecisionOS reiterates our long-standing commitment to surgeon training and education to help further the adoption of less invasive surgical procedures like X360,” NuVasive CCO Massimo Calafiore said in the release. “The integration of VR learning with our market-leading CPD and sales training programs enhance how we train our surgeon partners and sales teams as we work together to transform surgery, advance care, and change patient lives.”
NuVasive launched the X360 system in April 2019. It designed the platform for lateral single-position surgery to accommodate advanced techniques and technologies for enhanced operating room workflow and efficiency.
