The SOFA technology is at the core of a advanced eye surgery simulator developed in the context of the HelpMeSee project. HelpMeSee is an American foundation with a singular mission: eradicate preventable blindness caused by cataracts — the leading cause of blindness worldwide — within two decades.
In this international journey, InSimo, one of the member of the Consortium, is subcontractor to develop a high-fidelity biomechanical simulation of the eye. HelpMeSee selected Moog for a joint development contract to design and produce this Eye Surgery Simulator. SenseGraphics and InSimo are acting as subcontractors to Moog on this project.
