Our history

The SURT simulator was invented by cardiothoracic surgeon Peyman Sardari Nia, MD, PhD at Maastricht University Medical Center (MUMC+).

EMTRAC, an educational foundation of the MUMC+, founded MA-TRAC BV to commercialize the SURT simulator. MA-TRAC BV was reorganized and privatized in the end of 2019 to develop the educational programs with external partners.

Delayed by Covid-19 pandemic MA-TRAC was relaunched in 2021 as Simurghy with focus on developing services, processes, and technologies for the Smart Surgery concept.
