Inventum Bioengineering Technologies, a Chicago-based firm, is behind the project. “We are combining the latest advancements in virtual reality to develop the world’s first protocol for preparing the patient for bodily freedom after the transplantation procedure,” Alexander Pavlovcik, chief executive of Inventum tells the Daily Mail.
