Orthomed, a member of the Infiniti Medical family, has announced a partnership with Osso VR, the leading virtual reality-based surgical training company, officially bringing RoVR surgical training to the animal health market. This first-of-its-kind training technology allows for veterinarians to practice procedures anytime, anywhere in virtual reality (VR).
The goal of this partnership is for Orthomed and its parent company, Infiniti Medical, to offer a full content library of veterinary procedures using Osso VR’s technology.
Already widely adopted in the medical industry, Osso VR’s on-demand educational experiences are effective, repeatable and measurable to help veterinarians reach proficiency with emerging techniques and medical devices. Utilising this technology, veterinarians will have access to VR training to gain muscle memory for increasing performance, knowledge and confidence in various procedures. Allowing veterinarians to experience and practice a procedure in VR before performing it on an animal increases the chances for a positive outcome.

“RoVR is a valuable new resource for veterinarians to gain exposure and practice in performing surgeries,” said Jared Finegold, CEO of Infiniti Medical-Orthomed. “There is a growing body of evidence which shows that repeated participation in VR training leads to increased confidence and more effective clinical outcomes for our pets. We are proud to be the first animal health company offering VR training technology to veterinarians worldwide.”
The first VR module being released is for cruciate ligament repair surgery using Orthomed’s Canine Cruciate Repair System. The surgery is a common and mainstream canine procedure that occurs when the dog has a tear in their cruciate ligaments, located in the knee. The surgery provides re-stabilisation of the knee to help them regain their mobility.
“Osso VR offers the opportunity to train and assess yourself on any procedure in VR in order to learn new procedures and to maintain your proficiency on existing ones. I’m incredibly excited that we can expand our evidence-backed technology into veterinary care for the first time ever by partnering with Infiniti Medical-Orthomed, a leader in the animal health technology space,” said Justin Barad, MD, CEO and co-founder of Osso VR.
