Polecam Medical Rig

Polecam Medical Rig

Project cost: £26,958

The Polecam medical rig is a specialist piece of filming equipment which will be used by the hospital’s Blended Learning team to film surgical procedures, for training and education purposes.

The Polecam allows the videographer a unique ‘birds eye view’ enabling them to capture an uninterrupted focal view of surgical procedures, without disturbing the surgeon or interfering with the surgical environment. The camera base is positioned in the corner of the theatre with a long arm that extends over the shoulders of the surgeons in the operating theatre to give an unrestricted ultra-high, high-definition view of the procedure without compromising the medical team.

The Polecam will enhance our hospital’s ability to provide the surgical workforce with a range of high-quality surgical training videos for use in medical training. The optimum view of surgical procedures would support our status as providers of high-quality teaching resources and remain at the forefront of technological advances.
