Fundings RESET ANR project


Objective Development of a new REtinal Surgery systEm for Training


Duration 2014 — 2017


Project description

Retina surgery is an increasingly performed procedure for the treatment of a wide spectrum of retinal pathologies. Yet, as most micro-surgical techniques, it requires long training periods before being mastered.

In order to properly answer requests from clinicians for highly realistic training on one hand, and new requirements from accreditation or recertification from surgical societies on the other hand, we are developing a high-fidelity training system for retinal surgery. The simulation system will be based on the platform SOFA, and will rely on expertise from our partners to ensure clinical and industrial relevance.
