Fundació Puigvert is the only center in Spain that uses virtual reality simulators for training in urology

Fundació Puigvert is the first and only center in Spain that uses virtual reality simulators in the teaching of urology through the training project for professionals “Urotraining Simulation” which was launched a few months ago. With this technology, the manipulation of the instruments is exactly the same as in a real surgery but without risks and, in addition, the errors made and the time spent can be measured.

The use of this technology represents an outstanding improvement in the surgeons’ learning, it increases their confidence level and avoids risks in the surgeries.

So far, there are many professionals who have been trained with this method, which is an advance compared to the learning techniques used previously.
