Aaron Oliker, Chief Innovation Officer, Bio DigitalTrack 2 HEALTHCARE
In 1999 an innovative charity, Smile Train, set out to tackle the problem of cleft deformity in the developing world by educating the local physician with sophisticated surgical techniques. To address this problem they harnessed the power of 3D technology with BioDigital to develop one of the most widely distributed virtual surgery simulators. This session will describe the technological 20-year journey to change the lives and smiles of over 1,000,000 children around the world, and the development and evolution of the BioDigital Platform. This session will detail the development from the first surgical animation in 2000, to the February 2021 release of the mobile surgery simulator.
