OphthoSim



 

OphthoSim™ Ophthalmoscopy Training & Simulation System is a hands-on simulation system that radically transforms how students learn to diagnose and treat eye pathologies. Its proprietary software and accompanying tools empower students to actively diagnose real-world eye conditions within a simulated environment.

 

“U.S. 3rd year medical students attempted direct ophthalmoscopy only 11% of the time in which an ocular fundus examination was clinically indicated1.”

OPHTHOSIM™  KEY FEATURES:

  • OphthoSim™ Ophthalmoscope -  Allows students to practice monocular vision and improve their ophthalmoscopic/funduscopic technique
  • Tracked Movements of the Ophthalmoscope - Verifies student progress as the ophthalmoscope’s movements and orientation are tracked by the instructor to complete the learning feedback loop
  • Realistic OphthoSim™ Eye Geometry - Replicates the magnification of lens in the human eye and different clinical conditions

OPHTHOSIM™  SOFTWARE:

  • OphthoSim™ Content -  Includes training and testing modules to practice and evaluate ophthalmoscopy technique
  • Database of 200 High Resolution Images - Supplemented with detailed text descriptions and some images are pre-annotated for normal landmarks and pathological features
  • Landmarking Function - Allows instructor to highlight specific characteristics of pathologies in the region student is viewing to enhance student-instruction interactions
  • Advanced Quizzes - Increases student capability with randomized realistic clinical scenarios that test both medical and patient interaction skills
  • Easy-to-use Graphical User Interface - Improves viewer retention though immersive full-screen experienceOphthoSim

Throughout the history of medicine, clinical learning has been based on imitating the actions of others. Medical students are expected to learn complex medical tasks by watching other clinicians perform that task. This is known as the “see one, do one” approach, or the apprenticeship model. Certainly, the “see one, do one” approach to learning will continue to have its place. In many cases, however, experts within healthcare see simulation as an alternative, or at least a stepping-stone, between classroom learning and clinical practice. This means change.
