Last Friday the ICCAS invited to the fourth Long Night of the Sciences at the BIO CITY Leipzig. There, visitors were able to try out an interactive training system, with which OR-personnel can exercise the handling of surgical tools.
Bernhard Glaser, Lucas Koch and Tobias Schellenberg had their hands full until midnight introducing the guests to the moving of the virtual instruments. The scientists had not expected such a large crowd. Whether old, whether young, whether professional or layman – the visitors obviously had fun at the tablet-instrument table, whose handling was a child’s play for the smartphone-generation. The innovative training system was very well received especially by physicians and clinical staff.
For Bernhard Glaser and his team the science night just flew by. What of it remains are new contacts, further inspirations and an inspiring event.
