Intronix Technologies toxin injection augmented reality simulation “ARm” is an excellent learning tool to reinforce toxin injection techniques. The lifelike model can be palpated to provide realistic tactile feedback. Augmented reality illustrates the anatomy view of the vital structures of the arm once the injection procedure is started. Target muscles can be selected for each encounter. 3D anatomical views show the target muscle, turning blue when the needle pathway is correct, and green when the target muscle is penetrated. Simulated EMG is present in the background and when target muscles are penetrated with the needle. Different injection approaches can be experienced, without any risk to a live patient.
ARm is the ultimate platform for sharpening injector skills. Check out the video posted on the Intronix website: http://www.intronixtech.com/augmented-reality/
Intronix will be developing different simulation platforms for other toxin injections including the head and neck, and lower extremities, as well as models for facet injections and lumbar punctures.
