Surgery Academy is an online service used for watching or broadcasting live or prerecorded videos of surgeries through a 360 degree immersive operating theatre experience. Surgery Academy plans to industrialize, socialize and collect a curation of surgical interventions. The learning program was developed for head mounted displays such as the Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR.
Surgery Academy uses Meta and GoPro cameras then renders the video themselves in order to create an augmented and virtual reality experience for medical students who are watching surgical procedures.
It helps med students to integrate their studies and improve their knowledge by accessing to extra informations (such as patient’s vital signs, patient’s medical imaging and 3D Computer Generated Imagery).
A student can then watch this footage with a virtual reality headset: the stereoscopic 3D and the wide field of view create a striking immersive effect.
The student can then replay the surgery in detail and watch...

Recommendations

Carlo Serbellani

I would strongly recommend to consider the candidacy of Armando. He is a creative guy, practical and insightful. He has a strong will and a free spirit of marketing.
Surgery Academy is a great idea, it is evolutionary and, coupled with the mentor, Armando could base a startup that could one day be worth a billion dollars or more.
Armando is sympathetic, trained, friendly and amenable. It has a sensitive soul, in fact he is an attentive listener and his generosity has no limits.
Armando is uncompromising, he knows what he wants. He loves to work, loves to improve and better himself.

I've known Armando in person for a couple of months. We previously shared some thoughts on a Facebook Group, Italian Startup Scene.
He is definitely a rain maker. He's got this brilliant idea of applying two trends, MOOCs and Google Glass, to surgery. Well, it looks like no one can stop him at reaching his goal, i.e. having a beta and a pilot site where testing it before the end of the year. In the last two months he has been able to contact and get received by people from the most prestigious hospitals in Milan, to contact the USA surgeon who first in the world recorded an operation with a pair of Google Glass and to partner with a Milan based startup developing white label e-learning platforms.
I do enjoy spending half a day per week with him: I share the knowledge I previously acquired in the innovation-driven entrepreneurship and digital health domain, I give access to my network if necessary and all together we speculate how to expedite the execution of his idea.
