Virtual reality training at Lakeland immerses surgical technology students into 3-D operating room

The surgical technology program at Lakeland Community College recently acquired new software intending to give students a feel for what it’s like to work in an operating room. According to the program, PeriopSim and PeriopSimVR use lifelike imagery and gaming technology to immerse students in a 3-D world. The simulation apps work by students donning a virtual reality headset and grasping right and left controllers which are connected to a laptop loaded with the software.
