The medical simulation software publisher InSimo, borne from the Shacra project team, is proposing a new software platform developed amongst other parties by Inria. It will be used to launch a new generation of medical simulators onto the market. Offering greater accuracy and speed, these simulators have a broader scope of application and can therefore meet the new demand for help with planning and performing increasingly complex surgical operations.
Careers at Inria - Interview
Stanley Durrleman recently received the Gilles Kahn award for his PhD carried out at the University of Nice - Sophia Antipolis. Having had his PhD jointly supervised by the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Cachan, as part of the ASCLEPIOS project-team, he is currently conducting post-doctoral research at the University of Utah in the US. We take a look back at a scientific career in applied mathematics, which began with no preference for a specific field. He then moved into medical imaging.

Brain-Machine interfaces (BMI) interpret brain activity to produce commands on a computer or other devices like a robotic arm. A BMI therefore allows its user, and especially a person with high mobility impairment, to interact with its environment only using its brain activity. We will present how it is possible to decode non-invasive or invasive brain signals to perform a reaching or a grasping movement using a Jaco robotic arm by Kinova.
Inria Industry Meeting
Inria, in partnership with the IHU Strasbourg and the Alsace BioValley cluster, organized an Inria Industry meeting about numerical simulation for healthcare and wellbeing, which brought more than 170 persons from companies, universities, hospitals and research laboratories. This day was an opportunity for five specialists: Luc Soler, Jean-Claude Granry, Alain Viari, Regis Caillat-Grenier and Stéphane Eifler to testify to the growing importance of simulation in the health sector, and for Inria Research teams to present their work in the field. Back on the highlights of the day.
Combining Brain-Computer Interfaces and Medical Simulators: Detecting Mental Workload to Adapt Medical Simulator Assistance
In this work we introduce the combined use of Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) and Medical Simulators. We propose to adapt medical simulator guides based on the mental activity measured by a BCI system. The aim of this system is to provide visual and haptic assistance only when the user’s brain activity reflects a high mental workload. This work paves the way to novel passive BCI applications such as medical training simulators based on passive BCI and “smart guides”.
Mario Sanz Lopez, a multidisciplinary engineer, is not only an expert in robotics and designing sensors and interfaces, but also in building prototypes. A member of the Shacra project team, a joint initiative between Lille university and Inria North European Labs, he is currently putting his talents to use in medical modelling, with the help of a rapidly growing technology, 3D printing.
Hugo Talbot has just received his doctorate from Inria. His research focuses on real-time simulation of cardiac electrophysiology. Through his video portrait, let's see an example of an Inria thesis.

It was a request from an American charity that got everything going for InSimo. Co-founder and Chairman Jérémie Allard looks back at that episode and explains what is so special about his young company's medical simulators.
With its retail release planned for 22 July, the eponymous technology created by Leap Motion is set to make waves as a video game interface and computer controller. The accurate detection of each finger means 3D virtual objects can be manipulated remotely. This technology could be highly beneficial in specific environments. The Shacra team researchers have been experimenting with the device for several months in order to integrate it into their medical simulation platform (SOFA) and use it in their interventional radiology applications.
