Self-Guided Otoscopy Training
The virtual reality simulator Earsi Otoscope allows medical students to practice handling of the otoscope and recognition of the most common pathologies of the ear. Earsi Otoscope is equipped with a lifelike model ear and otoscope handpiece in order to foster correct examination techniques. The preinstalled curriculum has been designed to teach recognition of the most common pathologies within only a few hours.
Earsi Otoscope is available in English, Chinese, Japanese and Spanish.
Lifelike Training Environment
Realistic Examination Training
The Earsi Otoscope simulator is handled the same way as its real counterpart and allows for realistic practice of ear examinations, including pencil grip and pinna pull. Looking through the otoscope into the model ear, trainees see a lifelike, three-dimensional representation of the external and middle ear simulated in real-time.
Earsi Otoscope offers an embedded courseware and can easily be integrated into educational programs. The curriculum consists of three courses, each consisting of several cases. Students advance through the curriculum independently and self-guided by completing the cases of a course. The standardized learning experience ensures that all students reach the same level of clinical proficiency.
Feedback and Evaluation
Trainees receive immediate, objective feedback after each virtual eye exam, for example on pain caused to the patient, the area of the tympanic membrane surface examined, or correct, wrong, and missing findings. Educators can access the training data of their students through the secure VRmNet web portal.
