eoSurgical join Limbs and Things
eoSurgical are very happy to announce that on 4th July 2023 we became part of the Limbs and Things family of innovative surgical and medical training tools. With over 30 years of experience improving surgical education and training, Limbs and Things is a natural home for eoSurgical.
Since eoSurgical incorporated 11 years ago, we have grown from putting a webcam in a shoe-box, to selling surgical simulators and software to over 95 countries world-wide.
The eoSurgical team will join Limbs and Things, maintaining our mission to make surgery safer globally. As well as continuing to guide the development of the eoSim laparoscopic simulator and SurgTrac training software, we look forward to bringing our software and data experience into the fold of the many exciting and ground-breaking models and simulators developed by Limbs and Things.

Roland Partridge MA(Oxon) MBChB PhD FRCS(Paeds) - Founder & Director of Product Design.
Roland is a Consultant Paediatric and Neonatal Surgeon with an interest in Upper GI and Minimally Invasive Surgery and a PhD in developmental biology. He built his first simulator when a trainee, initially to develop his own skills, and then rapidly recognised it's potential to train others. The eoSim simulator and SurgTrac instrument-tracking software are the culmination of over a decade of work to refine and optimise these training tools. They are now used in over 90 countries, facilitating hub-and-spoke surgical skills training worldwide, bringing together real instruments, tissue-like models, and mobile device instrument-tracking performance feedback. He has driven the academic assessment of these tools to ensure that they are robustly validated, and is particularly proud of the growing evidence-base.
Paul Brennan BSc (Hons) MB BChir PhD FRCS(Ed) - Founder & Director of Sales and Marketing.
