The hands-on approach has always been a renowned
educational practice. Zimmer looked to capitalise on
this but, it would mean working with real bones of the
human skeleton. However, these materials were highly
unconventional, leading to excessively high prices.
On top of that, these bones had a short life span and
required constant replacements.

The alternative was to provide printed documents and
videos. But Zimmer aspired to take things a step further.
By creating an interactive program, to communicate
the importance of precision while using the equipment.








To replicate real-life situations, DW Links developed a desktop application with 3D rendered bones and tools for the whole body. This allowed the user to select a specific tool, control the angle of the equipment and insert it into the selected bone.

In addition, users now have a 360-degree view of the bones and insertion points. To enhance the realism of the practice, any incorrect administration of the equipment would result in the cracking of the bone.






Participating trainers and Orthopaedics had nothing but positive feedbacks for the upgraded program. By meeting all their objectives with this cost-efficient solution, Zimmer continued the use of this application within their full range of products.
