Member of the month August 2018 - VirtaMed

Founded in 2007 as the outcome of PhD theses from ETH Zürich and EPFL, the Schlieren-based company now has over 100 employees and offices in the USA and China, plus a global network of sales partners to serve our international customers.

VirtaMed has also created customized simulators for medical associations to provide specialized education for their members and target audience. Likewise, many medical device companies have developed simulators with us to showcase their devices in a safe and clean environment and to train a larger number of physicians at a lower cost.

With a combination of virtual reality, tactile feedback, realistic anatomic models, and original medical instruments, VirtaMed’s simulators provide the most realistic and cost-effective training environment for medical practitioners. VirtaMed ArthroS™ features knee, shoulder, hip, and ankle arthroscopy as well as the FAST module for basic skills training. VirtaMed GynoS™ offers practical teaching in hysteroscopic procedures, IUD placement, and embryo transfer, while VirtaMed UroS™ includes patient cases for TURP, TURB, laser BPH, and morcellation.

Our mission is to change the way medical skills are taught and to improve the quality of care with cost-effective, state-of-the-art, virtual reality-based medical training and education. Just as pilots use flight simulators for training, we help medical practitioners gain experience before treating live patients.

This year, 2018, VirtaMed began an exclusive partnership for Virtual Reality simulation training with the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA), as well as undertaking a nationwide study with the French College of Orthopedic Surgery (CFCOT) and the Francophone Society for Arthroscopy (SFA). VirtaMed AG was named one of the top 15 employers in the ‘Best Companies to Work for in Switzerland 2018’ study carried out by Great Place to Work®.
