In October of 2017, Precision OS was able to participate in the 6th annual Interface Summit held in Vancouver Canada. Precision OS attended one of two days, being engaged and inspired by an incredible group of digital health innovators.
The Interface Health Society
“Interface Health is a platform and community that cares about innovators, the future of health and about making a difference in the world. This is where you can find the right solutions, connections and resources, anytime, anywhere — which means faster access, reduced costs, improved experiences and better outcomes for everybody.”
We had great opportunity to put our orthopedic VR platform in front of a great group of researchers, innovators, potential business partners and consumers.
The Vancouver Convention Center provided an incredible backdrop for our demonstration. We allowed users to experience our educational VR platform termed “Trauma OS”. Trauma OS is a virtual reality (VR) platform that allows students, resident, surgeons, and Implant company representatives to practice and perform procedures in VR. The benefit of this form of learning embodies principles of deliberate practice. This includes permitting learning from error-reflection and repetition. We provide the user is provided metrics to maintain objectivity and to improve performance.
Additionally invited to participate in Fast Pitch Canada where startups competed for $2.5 mil. in INTERFACE money. CEO and Co-Founder of Precision OS, Danny Goel, rose to the challenge of the three minute time limit and managed to deliver an information packed pitch under time. Precision OS place third and was granted four hundred thousand dollars in INTERFACE dollars, by judges including Paul Geyer(CEO, Discovery Parks), Brenda Irwin(Managing Partner, Relentless Pursuit Partners), and Rob Peets (Director, TELUS Ventures)
We look forward to the next Interface Summit and thank Founder and CEO of the Interface Health Society, Micheal Bidu, for his invitation and warm welcome.
