Touch Surgery: the iPad app that teaches surgeons how to operate

Touch Surgery, the new mobile surgical simulator lets you tap and swipe your way through the steps of an operation in a radical new model of interactive training. With an effortless swipe of the finger, you slice open the patient's skin. A gentle pinch and the flesh is prised apart to reveal layers of tissue. Another swipe and a pair of scissors descends into view and begins to cut into the muscle. A few more swipes, taps and pinches and, hey presto, you've removed an appendix.

Touch Surgery, is a new iPhone and iPad app designed to help trainee surgeons learn the steps of their operations. Touch Surgery takes simulation to a whole new level: every step of each procedure is animated in graphic 3D detail. It's not for the squeamish.
