Modern experience technology (q.v. VR and AR) poses to benefit not only the entertainment industry but the field of medicine as well, and Touch Surgery is a tech company looking to combine augmented reality with medical training. The London-based company offers scientifically and medically vetted training procedures to help new doctors and surgeons learn and practice their craft.

Touch Surgery's system uses cognitive mapping, cutting edge AI, and 3D rendering to codify surgical procedures. The system itself consists of an app and dozens of surgery simulations built into it. Using their smartphone or tablet, doctors and surgeons are thus able to exercise their dexterity and decision-making skills while not in the operating room. By providing practice in a no-risk environment, the trainees are thus freer to experiment, make mistakes, and expand their skills altogether.
