Pioneering mobile training simulation demonstrates groundbreaking technique of

This information was published, 2016-10-12 08:57 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Today, Episurf Medical announced the public release of the Episealer surgical
training simulation on the Touch Surgery app. The procedural simulation is now
available to Touch Surgery’s audience of over 1.3 million users globally, which
is a perfect match to the Episealer platform, a proprietary patient-specific
approach to addressing knee lesions and previously untreatable joint pain
problems.

The growing global interest in the groundbreaking Episealer approach to
preserving knee cartilage, is well suited for Touch Surgery’s massive surgical
community. Episurf is committed to providing a high standard of surgical
education and training as surgeons learn the Episealer patient-specific
technique. Touch Surgery’s dynamic and interactive platform enables Episealer
surgeons to practice the surgical technique at a time and place that suits
their hectic surgical schedules.

The Touch Surgery and Episurf Medical teams worked collaboratively to build a
comprehensive training platform that replicates the unique benefits of the
Episealer implant and associated instruments. Three different simulations allow
the user to experience and virtually master the Episealer Condyle Solo,
Episealer Trochlea Solo and Episealer Femoral Twin approaches.

Dr. Jean Nehme MD, co-founder at Touch Surgery, says “We’re honored to have
partnered with Episurf to create a simulation for one of the most innovative
procedures in knee orthopedics, available to anyone, anywhere in the world”.
The global reach Dr. Nehme mentions can be seen in Touch Surgery’s user
population, with users in every country in the world.

“As a young dynamic med-tech company focused on innovation and surgical
education, Episurf Medical immediately recognized the same qualities in Touch
Surgery as a high-end provider of state-of-the-art surgical simulations. It has
been a fruitful partnership and we are delighted with the outcome. Most
importantly, the Touch Surgery platform will give us access to a global
community of orthopedic surgeons previously unavailable to us”, says Rosemary
Cunningham Thomas, CEO, Episurf Medical.
