The University awarded a contract for a surgical simulation platform to ImmersiveTouch, Inc., Chicago, IL, for an estimated $1,500,000.
The recent digital revolution in imaging technology have made significant advances for children and adults with complex cleft/craniomaxillofacial deformities allowing us more precise treatment planning for surgery, orthodontics, prosthodontics and functional quantification of occlusion, speech and airflow. We need surgery simulators that combines 3D all-digital virtual images with high fidelity force feedback on the surgeon?s hands and multi-plane ?tactile? cross-sectioning of anatomies for all-sensory, very realistic and effective training and exploration.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the item or service is copyrighted or patented and is not available except from the holder of the copyright or patent.
