MEDIA – Intelligent Haptronic Solutions (IHS) presented its virtual reality (VR) endoscopy training simulator at this year’s World Artificial Intelligence Conference (WAIC), held virtually in Shanghai, China from July 9-11 2020. This year, the international conference brought together major industry leaders in the fields of Education, Health, Transportation, Finance, Industrial Infrastructure, Basic Technology, Urban Planning, and Business to showcase the latest artificial intelligence (AI) applications under the themes of “Intelligent Connectivity, Indivisible Community”. With more than 100 companies participating globally, IHS was selected for the opportunity and platform to share its cutting-edge AI, haptics, VR, and cloud computing technologies for enhanced surgical training.
With the theme of "Intelligent Connectivity and Indivisible Community", the WAIC is an international forum attracting influential AI scientists and entrepreneurs around the world to discuss industry trends and technological innovations in AI
The company has recently completed angel round financing in 2019 with Chinese venture capital group, Yuanzhen Value Investment Development Co., Ltd. And Hongtai Capital Holdings.For more information on IHS’ endoscopy simulator, contact[email protected]Perhaps the biggest challenge with use of virtual reality surgical simulators as objective assessment tools is demonstrating construct validity (the degree to which test items for a set of procedures identify the quality, ability, or trait it was designed to measure) and linking simulator outcome measures and parameters to clinical performance. Presently, few studies of existing virtual reality simulators for gastrointestinal endoscopy show construct validity.
Founded in 2017, Intelligent Haptronic Solutions is a medical robotics company focused on developing industry-leading VR simulation solutions for surgical training and beyond. The IHS team bolsters senior engineering talent from Canada and China, with dual Research and Development centres in Vancouver, Canada and Shenzhen, China. Together with reputable gastroenterologists and medical experts from North America and China, IHS’ endoscopy simulator is engineered to provide the most realistic, learner-centered environment for surgical trainees to practice and acquire critical endoscopic skills and techniques for clinical competency. The simulator is developed with global training standards and practice guidelines in mind and engineered to enhance the quality of medical education.
IHS intends to expand its surgical simulation products to other specialties in the medical field and robotics-assisted surgery. The company’s roadmap includes creating haptic hardware and software solutions for education, industry, gaming, entertainment and other industries.
