Realize Medical’s VR 3D modeling software integrates with Logitech stylus

Realize Medical, a Canadian VR-based medical 3D modeling company, has announced a new partnership with Swiss computer and software company Logitech. The companies will work together to further develop Realize Medical’s Elucis platform, the first program developed specifically for designing patient-specific 3D medical models directly in a virtual reality environment.

By partnering with Logitech, Realize will be able to integrate the former’s VR Ink Pilot Edition stylus with the Elucis platform, which will make it easier for users to draw and edit models with precision. Realize’s software gives users the tools to transform medical images into 3D medical models using virtual reality. The models can then be 3D printed or used for other advanced visualization purposes. Logitech’s stylus, a first generation VR product, will facilitate the image viewing and modeling process by enabling users to intuitively “write” on 2D surfaces while transforming the 3D model.

“We are constantly on the lookout for innovative ways to improve our Elucis platform, and this partnership with Logitech does just that,” stated Justin Sutherland, CEO & Co-Founder of Realize Medical. “Giving users the ability to draw seamlessly within our program will greatly improve the user experience, bringing us closer to meeting our mission of providing healthcare professionals with the 3D modeling tools they need to improve patient care and education.”

Realize Medical was founded by medical physicists from the Ottawa Hospital and the University of Ottawa who  recognized the potential benefits of using VR technology for medical modeling early on. The company has brought to market a platform, Elucis, which functions as a clinician education and training tool, using 3D models to help plan patient-specific interventions and guide treatment decisions. The virtual reality setting that makes Elucis unique offers a more dynamic way for medical professionals to create 3D medical models. Down the line, the Ottawa-based company believes that technologies like VR, AR and 3D printing will transform healthcare, leading to more efficient and tailored treatment plans and procedures.
