Arctop technology is used in operating rooms and in training simulators to measure surgeon cognition and connect real-time data to surgical coaching applications. These applications use Arctop data to personalize and accelerate training of new surgeons through the approach below:
- Using a comfortable headband with fabric skin sensors, measure Focus and Enjoyment (on a scale of 0 to 100) of master surgeons alongside surgeons-in-training while they operate.
- Create a library of ideal surgeon cognition patterns that map to successful patient outcomes across a range of laparoscopic (minimally-invasive) surgical procedures.
- Use this new understanding of surgeon cognition to shorten surgical residency by a full year, and train non-medical doctors to perform certain surgeries at the same level as a certified surgeon.
