Airway Limited was founded by Dr Paul Baker, who is known internationally for his research and teaching in the field of airway management. Through Airway Limited, Dr Baker recognised the need for a small, portable simulator and started the development of the ORSIM bronchoscopy simulator in 2006.
The ORSIM system has been designed as an affordable solution to address an urgent need to improve bronchoscopy training. We have developed a high quality, virtual reality, bronchoscopy simulator that is small, portable and capable of running off a laptop. This combined with the latest computer graphics and simulation technology takes hands-on experience to a new dimension.
The ORSIM system consists of three main parts: a replica video bronchoscope, a desktop sensor and a dedicated laptop with software program. The replica video bronchoscope is connected to the small desktop sensor. The sensor registers movement of the insertion tube and translates this to a three-dimensional virtual airway displayed through the software on the laptop screen. The user can progress through a range of upper and lower airway scenarios receiving instant feedback as well as scoring metrics, recording and play-back.
