Development of disposable epidural catheter for animals
WSI(299170), a pharmaceutical and medical device distribution company, will enter the veterinary market in earnest with 3DMEDIVISION, a medical edutech company.
WSI announced that it has signed a strategic business agreement with 3D Medivision, which operates the veterinary education platform "Veterflix" to advance into the pet medical field through the development of animal endoscopy.
3D Medivision, which has the largest veterinary online education content in Korea, is solidifying its position in the field of veterinary education by producing and supplying educational content, online and offline combined education, and seminars through Veterflix, an education platform exclusively for veterinarians.
WSI is pushing to develop a disposable epidural catheter for animals to expand the scope of use of the disposable epidural catheter product KESS300 to animals, and held a seminar on how to use the model at the Veterflix Global Training Center (VGTC) in Songdo, Incheon on the 29th.
"As a result of continuous cooperation with related institutions and researchers to enter the veterinary market, we received a positive response that technology can be applied to the market," a WSI official said. "We will make various efforts to expand the scope of surgery while allowing the product to be applied to animal surgery."
Currently, with most animal surgeries performed as open surgery, animal endoscopy is expected to leave only small scars and enable rapid recovery, reduce bleeding during surgery, and significantly reduce exposure to the risk of infection.
Meanwhile, VGTC, the Veterflix Global Training Center, offers a variety of training for veterinarians, including Live Surprise, Hands-on Course, Dry-Lab, Wet-Lab, and Seminar. Surgical practice on December 11 and TPLO practice conducted by Professor Kang Byung-jae of Seoul National University on December 18 will follow.

We developed a disposable epidural catheter for animals
[Financial News] WSI, a KOSDAQ medical device distribution company, will develop an endoscope for animal medical devices and enter the so-called "pet economy" market.
An official from WSI said on the 30th, "We have signed a strategic business agreement with 3D Medivision, a company specializing in medical edutech, to carry out projects related to pet medical care."
3D Medivision has online educational content related to veterinary medicine. It will produce and supply educational content through the vet-only 3D surgery education platform "Veterflix."
Based on the previously developed disposable epidural catheter product "KESS300," WSI plans to develop disposable epidural catheter applicable to animals.
An official from WSI said, "As a result of continuous cooperation with related institutions and researchers to enter the veterinary market, we received a positive answer that technology can be applied to the market. We will conduct various studies to expand the scope of surgery."
"Currently, most animal surgeries are open surgery methods, and endoscopy for applicable surgeries will enable surgery with relatively little bleeding and less blood transfusion," he said. "It will significantly lower exposure to rapid recovery, small scars, and infection risks."

On the 5th (Saturday), the medical endoscope company Karl Storz Endoscopic Korea (CEO Kim Tae-hyun, Carlstoltz Korea) held an arthroscopic workshop for veterinarians at VGTC in Songdo, Incheon.
The Small Animal Artistic Masterclass Workshop was the first workshop (hands-on course) organized by Karl Storz Korea for domestic veterinarians.
The event was held with lectures and hands-on guidance by Professor Mark Glyde of Murdoch University in Korea. Professor Mark Glide, an AOVET instructor and European veterinary surgeon (DECVS), is a world-renowned authority in veterinary orthopedic neurosurgery. He has also visited Korea several times and is well-known among domestic veterinarians.
The workshop consisted of theoretical lectures, hands-on practice, and Wrap-Up, which lasted from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Theoretical lectures and hands-on practices were alternately conducted, starting with a subjective joint (front leg bend joint), which is good for applying arthroscopy for the first time.
Professor Mark Glide explained with an easy example and helped the participants understand. Veterinarian Kim Ah-young, who majored in veterinary neurosurgery at Seoul National University's veterinary school and completed the American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation (ACVSMR), also had a smooth translation.
Participants in the workshop said, "I wanted this type of lecture," adding, "I thank Carlstoltz for providing me with a good opportunity to learn, and I've solved a lot of questions."
In particular, veterinarians who directly participated in the hands-on course said, "I found out that I didn't need much equipment to start arthroscopy."
Veterinarians who could not participate in the hands-on course stayed in the lecture hall and watched the course in real time through VGTC's system. Practice videos, arthroscopic images, as well as voice were shared in real time. Veterinarians expressed satisfaction with the latest real-time relay system.
VGTC (Veterflix Global Training Center), established by 3D Medivision Veterflix in Songdo for veterinary clinical practice training, has a Wet-lab facility including real-time 3D relay equipment so that you can perform surgery or perform ultrasound tests while watching 3D images.
Karl Storz Korea explained, "Karl Storz is the only company that provides the largest range of animal-only endoscopy products, from micro to super-large animals," adding, "We communicate with veterinarians at a global level and provide various educational opportunities."
"This workshop was Karl Storz Korea's first step for domestic veterinarians who wanted to acquire the latest knowledge and skills in the developing veterinary field," he added. "We will continue to actively carry out domestic workshops."
Meanwhile, Karl Storz runs the Center for Advanced Veterinary Education (CAVE) with Murdoch University. Two workshops are scheduled for November, and can be reached at CAVE@murdoch.edu.au or +61 (08)93606342 (Principles of Arthroscopic for Small Animal Practice from November 16 to 17, Small Animal Advanced Arthroscopic – Stile Joint).
Surgical education platform for veterinarians VETERFLIX ....“The 3D image education method has clear sustainability”
CEO interview Kijin Kim, CEO of 3D Medivision Co., Ltd.
“We started 3D shooting to change the paradigm of effective teaching methods.”
Kim Ki-jin, CEO of 3D Medivision, developed a camera that records the surgical process in 3D and received a patent. The time when companion animals become cultured is when the price is more than 30,000 dollars. Therefore, the possibilities of veterinarians are infinite, and the need for training and contents for surgery was judged, and 3D imaging techniques were created.
All surgical contents for veterinarians are being distributed as 3D files. 3D Medivision's VETERFLIX is a surgical education platform for veterinarians. The reason why CEO Ki-jin Kim developed 3D was that he got the idea from shooting in 3D when he was shooting a movie in Hollywood.
The effect is much better when viewed in three dimensions than when viewing a three-dimensional screen flat. In addition, since it is VR, it is developed into AR, etc., and the image itself is unconditionally oriented to 3D. Only 5% of robotic surgeries can perform during surgery. In the end, people have to do it.
According to the thesis, it is necessary to train for more than 20,000 hours before surgery is possible. Assuming that you study 58 hours a week, this period is over 10 years. After all, surgery education has entered the era of studying with a computer or cell phone rather than studying with a book as RCT technology develops. Therefore, there is a growing awareness that computer or mobile phone education is necessary in medical education. 3D Medivision's education platform can be viewed on a computer or mobile phone.
In the case of Seoul National University Hospital or Yonsei University Hospital, CEO Kim Ki-jin is continuously filming clinical cases for each surgical case and clinical case.
#360 content user loyalty is over 40%
Currently, we are collecting content to provide free service to conferences. The veterinary school started shooting content three years ago and has about 360 pieces of content. Currently, about 17% of them are studying this content, but they say that their loyalty exceeds 40%.
We started from the basics together with professors for quality educational content. The good thing about digitalization is that it is possible to produce good contents from the preparation for surgery to the prognosis after surgery, in the professional field. In fact, the content can be extended to veterinary use, veterinary substitute, and animal health use.
In accordance with the veterinary school curriculum for two years with the Association of Veterinary Professors, the dog surgery process was actually filmed, and this content is being used by 8 veterinary schools.
“The 3D video education method is clearly sustainable.”
Because it looks three-dimensional, the effect of learning is clear. 3D video teaching method has proven to be the most effective
#Surgery education platform for veterinarians VETERFLIX

Practice is possible at the training center located in Songdo. VGTC stands for Veterflix Global Training Center and is the largest retraining center in Asia.
# Practical training center located in Songdo
An investment company called Notus is conducting clinical reagents using experimental animals. We have a seminar room where veterinarians or veterinary students can actually practice with IOCC-approved laboratory animals. It was completed at the end of last year and started the first hands-on course in May of this year. Structure of re-training at VGTC in Songdo after studying with 3D images. This is the goal of 3D Medivision's educational platform.
Now, the era in which surgical methods of doctors around the world are shared with 3D surgical images does not seem so far away. At the heart of it is 3D Medivision.
