OtoSim Inc.



OtoSim Inc. continues to innovate with a new simulation and training technology for otolaryngology: OtoSim 2™ is the upgraded version of OtoSim™ with new software and hardware, and increased capabilities.

"95% of graduating medical students do not feel comfortable with their level of otology skills at the end of their clerkship1." Many professionals can relate to this in reflecting on the inadequacies of their otoscopy training. There is a need to fix this! Following a three-hour group session using OtoSim™ Otoscopy Training & Simulation System, medical students increased their accuracy in the diagnosis of various ear pathologies from 54% to 78%2.
