It was only recently, that Dr. med. Patrick Dubach from Inselspital Bern finished his activities as guest researcher at ICCAS. Now, he gave Bernhard Glaser (MAI) a warm welcome during his study visit at Bern University Hospital and ARTORG Center for Biomedical Engineering Research.
Glaser carried out a study in the scope of his newly developed training system for those handling surgical instruments in the operation room. The so called “Nosco Trainer” was tested and afterwards rated in the framework of a multi-center study by the OR-personnel of the local ENT-department. The feedback of the probands was consistently positive. Thus, there is a need for such a training system in the education of Swiss-OR-staff. At ARTORG Center, Glaser was provided an insight into the work of the research group „Image Guided Surgery“.
The open mindness of the Swiss colleagues towards the project leads to the hope for further cooperation. A publication of the current study results is in progress.
