Owned by MicroPort, MicroPort Knowledge and Action Medical Training Institute is a professional training center for clinical medicine and professional education. Its name originates from the Ming Dynasty philosopher Wang Yangming's "Unity of Knowledge and Action"， a philosophy of mind. "Knowledge" indicates the scientific knowledge while "Action" refers to people's practice. The unity of knowledge and action represents that MicroPort combines the high-tech products with doctors' action, and through academic promotion, the developed products are safely applied to the clinic.
Located in Shanghai-based MicroPort, MicroPort Knowledge and Action Institute was completed in November 2015, equipped with high-tech facilities and equipment, such as Cicada Lecture Hall, Tele-Medicine Global Center, 3D Experience Center, Intervention Simulation Training Classroom, Orthopedics Training Classroom, DSA Simulation Operating Room, zSpace, 3D printing, etc.
The main function of the hall is to relay industry conferences, annual meetings and remote surgery, and to conduct internal training and executive lectures. Each table has been equipped with advanced audio and video recording equipment, which can switch intelligently according to different usage functions.
Equipped with 8 training tables with each table connecting to audio and video, this classroom has a capacity of up to 32 people and has the ability to conduct group training. The room can also be divided into two separate classrooms, each of which is equipped with 4 training tables to satisfy different training in terms of scales.
Equipped with audio and video equipment, HD projection system and 7 stainless steel artificial bone operating desks, this classroom can carry out training for less than 30 people. Each top of the operating table is equipped with a ceiling-mounted camera that can transmit the filming of each operating table to the projection screen in real time for the students to communicate and learn.
3D Experience Center is equipped with 3D printer, zSpace 3D teaching device and holographic equipment. ZSpace is one of the advanced 3D interactive devices today. Visitors could wear 3D glasses and view 3D anatomical images of the human body, having light and amicable experience. Referring to the holographic equipment, it has utilized virtual reality technology to provide the visitors with vivid 3D images without wearing 3D glasses.
The Operation Room is used for simulating coronary intervention surgery, nerve intervention surgery, equipped with hydraulic surgical bed and C-arm machine. Cooperating with intervention operation simulator, it can vividly simulate the works in the Intervention Operation Room. The external computer can be used to broadcast the real situation in the operation room and achieve synchronous online feedback during the operation. Specially designed, the ball tube does not generate radiation, which enables safe training experience.
Combining the space positioning device and VR virtual reality imaging technology, this room not only restores the real environment and facilities of a catheter room, but also simulates every step of interventional surgery that allows the experiencer to participate in it through interactive links. It is widely used in internal and external basic intervention training. Through the experience in VR environment, doctors and internal staff from MicroPort who have not been exposed to interventional surgery can operate in virtual environment and form an intuitive sense of interventional surgery, so that they can better cooperate in the operation.
