Woburn-based haptic products maker SensAble Technologies Inc. this week is showcasing new software and hardware medical training offerings based on its technology.

The idea behind its haptic devices, toolkits, and 3-D modeling applications, the company explained, is that it wants to create a virtual reality environment for use in medical simulation to reduce patient risk and expense. It also allows doctors and other medical care staff to perfect their various tasks while requiring less manpower because the SensAble software and devices oversee the doctor during the training process, eliminating the need for an instructor.
