Lifelike Simulations That Make Real Surgery Safer

September 4th, 2018




At the Australian Physiotherapy Council we are excited about the use of simulation in physiotherapy education and training, and you would’ve heard of our work on evaluating its use in assessments. It’s an exciting and fast developing space… Here’s a fascinating example of the innovative use of simulation in the health/medical environment.

Critical care doctor Peter Weinstock shows how surgical teams are using a blend of Hollywood special effects and 3D printing to create amazingly lifelike reproductions of real patients — so they can practice risky surgeries ahead of time. Think: “Operate twice, cut once.” Glimpse the future of surgery in this forward-thinking talk.

This talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxNatick, an independent event.
