The Regional Anesthesia RA, Ventriculostomy EVD, and Central Venous Access CVA mixed reality simulators are ready to be delivered to the DoD. All simulators exceed original specifications. The CVA simulators preliminary data indicated a potential self-study option for self-debriefing to be successful. Most training scenarios occurred with a human instructors supervision and minor intervention or interfacing. A working proof of concept TransRectal UltraSound TRUS-Imaged Prostate Biopsy model has been produced and initial data shows a need for the simulator among urologists. The SMARTS SDK has allowed implementation of new mixedaugmented reality simulators beyond the original five deliverables to the DoD.
