Immersion Medical Introduces LaparoscopyVR Surgical Simulation System

June 13, 2007 — Immersion Corporation a leading developer and licensor of touch feedback technology, announced the LaparoscopyVRSurgical Simulation System.

The LapVR System, including hardware and software designed by Immersion Medical, comes in a self-contained cart and provides an effective and convenient tool to assist in training of minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures.

The LapVR System was designed by reviewing the Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery guidelines endorsed by the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons, conducting in-depth research of training needs, and receiving input from surgeons at world renowned institutions.

The base laparoscopy surgical simulator includes an Essential Skills module with unique exercises for developing camera navigation, cutting, clipping, adhesiolysis, and hand transfer skills. The LapChole module provides a simulated environment for removal of the gall bladder, one of the most common types of laparoscopic surgeries in the U.S.

The LapVR surgical simulator provides physics-based simulation that responds to user actions. Immersion Medical's TouchSense technology supports these responses with realistic graphical movement of tissue and organs and realistic forces felt through the trocar arms and handles. The surgical simulation system comes with widely viewable monitor suitable for team training, virtual camera and tools, and modules packaged in an ergonomic, height-adjustable, wheeled cart. It also includes a curriculum that follows industry training standards, providing key material needed to administer effective training programs for both individuals and teams. Institutions can also import their own didactic video content directly into the simulator for customized training.
