Customized coursework. Dynamic assessment.
High-performance laparoscopic skills come only with repetition. With LapSim, techniques and complete procedures can be practiced again and again at increasing levels of difficulty, with thousands of new challenges, scenarios and complications to make each experience unique. Each exercise is digitally recorded with detailed metrics, statistics and video debriefing, providing both immediate and long-term skill development feedback.
Proven skill transference from VR to OR
LapSim is the only virtual reality training system proven to improve OR performance. In fact, multiple randomized published studies have demonstrated that the skills practiced during both short–term and long-term training with LapSim are directly transferable to the operating room.
Best practices for better outcomes
With LapSim, the procedures and environment of abdominal and pelvic keyhole surgery look and feel remarkably similar to a real case, without putting any patients at risk. The system’s customizable scenarios allow trainees to experience rare and life-threatening events while their decision processes are challenged and refined. They can develop and practice critical skills repeatedly until they and their instructors feel confident and competent, resulting in improved performance and better patient outcomes.
Improved communication & collaboration
With the LapSim camera, trainees learn to work in a realistic OR environment by practicing alongside colleagues and other OR staff. As trainees build confidence in hand-eye coordination, depth perception and other vital techniques, they’ll also hone critical communication and collaboration skills.
