SIMIS: Simulation for Intervention and Surgery

Real-cases based simulator for advanced and basic training, preoperative planning and research
Dieser Inhalt ist nur auf englisch verfügbar!

We create realistic simulators for students, surgeons and clinicians.

SIMIS is aboucamt new cutting-edge technologies brought into practice by the collaboration between engineers and clinicians: 3D printing of soft materials allows to achieve unprecedented realism of physical simulations, augmented reality unlocks flexible simulations, and the integration physical-digital leads to next-level simulations.

Our neurosurgical simulator is an innovative tool designed to bridge the gap between theoretical learning and practical experience in the field of neurosurgery. It provides an immersive, realistic environment where students and professionals can hone their skills, learn complex neuroanatomical structures, and practice surgical techniques without the risks associated with live operations.

Key Features:

  • Realistic Simulation: Experience the closest thing to real-life neurosurgery with our highly detailed and accurate simulations.
  • Interactive Learning: Engage with interactive modules that offer hands-on practice in a variety of neurosurgical procedures.
  • Cutting-Edge Technology: Utilize the latest advancements in simulation technology, providing a seamless and intuitive learning experience.
  • Customizable Scenarios: Tailor the simulator to fit specific learning objectives, with a range of scenarios from basic to advanced complexity.

A Global Impact:
Our project is not just about developing a tool; it’s about shaping the future of neurosurgical education worldwide. By providing a safe, controlled, and comprehensive learning platform, we are empowering the next generation of neurosurgeons with the skills and confidence they need to excel in their field.

A Tool for All Levels of Expertise:
Whether you're a seasoned neurosurgeon looking to refine your skills or a medical student taking your first steps into the world of neurosurgery, our simulator offers a rich, adaptable learning experience. It's not just about practicing techniques; it's about understanding the intricacies of the human brain and developing the confidence to perform complex procedures.

Mixed 3D+AR simulator:
We are currently focusing on merging 3D printing and augmented reality in a new disruptive simulation platform that will allow unprecedented training functionalities.

Safe the date:

We are happy to invite you to our next event in Vienna: the 11th European-Japanese Cerebrovascular Congress on 27-29 June 2024 at the Museum of Medical History – Josephinum.


The physical simulator has obtained funds from AWS’s program “Prototypenförderung für Universitäten und Fachhochschulen” in 2023 (Nr. P2410019).
