Description: B. Braun Aesculap Spine VR is an interactive Virtual Reality application that offers an overview of lumbar spinal surgery using instruments produced by B. Braun Melsungen AG, one of the world’s leading providers of healthcare products. The application features two interactive surgery sequences using ENNOVATE, a new screw model for spinal cord surgery, and XP, a new disk implant.

The instruments were carefully rendered and programmed to allow a natural and precise interaction sequence. The environment reacts to changes in user input and to scene transitions. A special feature of the application is a level that represents the osseous tissue of the bone: Bone Land. Before entering the operating room to perform the implant surgery with XP, the player changes to microscopic scale and travels through the bone structure. Bone Land is comprised of algorithmically generated 3D units.

Review: Put simply ‘B. Braun Aesculap Spine VR’ is an advert for B. Braun Melsungen AG healthcare products. There is a nice little lobby area to teleport around in (only at chosen waypoints) and a few of the products they offer. There is no real educational content here but the main arena and items within it look good I suppose. There really isn’t any reason for most people to download this, but if you like the look of it or plan to have spine surgery sometime soon maybe it will be of interest to you.
