See how simulation technology is being used to create better doctors, nurses and other medical professionals.
Simulation training gives healthcare professionals a new and enlightening perspective on how to handle real medical situations. Through scenarios that simulate genuine crisis management situations, medical simulation can increase the level of healthcare quality that participants provide.
Patient simulators can be programmed to talk, function and react like a real patient. They can mimic many normal and abnormal body functions and respond as a patient would to medical treatment. These simulators represent a breakthrough in medical training because they provide the opportunity to rehearse both simple and complex emergency procedures.

Researchers at Stryker Berchtold, a medical technologies and research company, are on the cutting edge of brain mapping research and are bringing that research to you! Their aim is to figure out which parts of the brain give us certain abilities, called localization of function, and how these parts of the brain are connected. For example, what part of our brain enables us to see the color green, interpret a joke as funny or remember what we ate for breakfast? Scientists use imaging to watch the brain work on various tasks to answer these questions and at Otronicon you can interact with this technology yourself.
The Stryker NAV3 Platform is the ultimate surgical navigation experience. The technology features a 32" HD surgeon monitor, a navigation camera arm with large range of motion makes it easy to accommodate various procedures and approaches, built-in LiveCam that allows for easy positioning of the navigation camera and smart instruments, IO Tablet user interface with touch capability and more.
