As part of the official handover, the project management team delivered the OR-X to the users. The test phase can now begin and is expected to last until August 2023. The OR-X team will install the medical technology, IT systems and research equipment and set up the surgical infrastructure for operation. Selected experiments and test courses will be conducted to optimize processes and familiarize personnel with the procedures.
OR-X will help keep Switzerland at the forefront of surgical innovation. The completion of construction marks an important milestone towards this goal. Prof. Mazda Farshad, initiator and founder, explained: “The OR-X will be a national platform for translational surgical research and training. I look forward to the great surgical discoveries and breakthroughs made in OR-X.”
OR-X (Operating Room X) is a state-of-the-art infrastructure for surgical research and education based on the latest technology. It will simplify surgical education without placing unnecessary burdens on patients. Researchers can develop and validate new technologies and innovations more efficiently.
