We help teach doctors using video-game-inspired virtual reality software.
Dr. Carl Nelson
Professor of engineering, professional engineer, consummate maker: Carl Nelson is the go-to partner if you need something made but you don’t know how. His laboratory built the controllers for the original training products. Carl currently supervises teams of student engineers in building the future of medical training.
Dr. Hesham Ali
Educational leader, luminary academic, expert computer scientist: Dr. Ali works with the team to build artificial intelligence systems to assess trainee performance. Working closely with the team Dr. Ali provides the theoretical and applied programming experience to better measure medical skills mastery.
Dr. Joseph Siu
Movement scientist, inventive researcher, a keen observer of human motion: Dr. Siu applies multiple disciplines to measure human performance. Joseph’s collaboration with UNMC’s surgeons and doctors helped give rise to the research powering Adeptus Interactive’s next-generation medical training platform.
The following article was written by Dr. Joseph Siu, inventor of The Adept and associate professor & director of the Global Health Opportunity Program. With a team of experienced engineers, Dr. Carl Nelson, Dr. Hesham Ali and human learning scientist, Dr. Joseph...
What if the best way to improve healthcare is to improve the caregivers? Medical education, despite the advances in technology, often resembles education from 30, 40, or even 50 years ago. Just like a generation ago, medical students spend years in lecture. Technology...
The Adept, a laparoscopic surgical trainer, uses motion capture to translate the movement of real surgical tools into a 3D simulation. Inspired by popular video games, the surgeon completes competitive tasks. An internet- enabled AI finds patterns in the motion of the tool and provides a score of the doctor’s proficiency.
