Foxpat

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2020

Foxpat is a training simulator for prospective surgeons to perform knee joint replacement operations. After all, an inexperienced surgeon usually needs about 25 operations to become familiar with this complex procedure and operate on "real" patients. Simply developing more efficient and ergonomic surgical tools without an exercise platform is not enough. Foxpat is a realistic physical simulation of the knee with integrated sensors that provide feedback on the effectiveness of the procedure.

This innovative solution allows a novice surgeon to acquire specific training in the most realistic and efficient way possible. It has been meticulously designed down to the finest detail. It balances effort and usage value and ensures a positive experience.
