Our team won the first place in the category “Surgical Education and Training” at the Medical AR Summer School hosted by #TUMCamp, #JohnsHopkinsUniversity, and #BalgristUniversityHospital.

Fifteen Teams of experts from all over the world participated in the competition.

Together with our clinical collaborator Sebastian Andress from #LMUHospitalMunich, we could push forward a design study to an initial proof of principle.

A poster abstract of this work in progress that the team entitled “ARTFM: Augmented Reality Visualization of Tool Functionality Manuals in Operating Rooms” was also published at this years IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces.

We thank the organizers and congratulate our students to the great result. What an amazing success! Congratulations Hannah and Constantin!
