The Immersion Corp. LaparoscopyVRSurgical Simulation System provides a tool to assist in training of minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures.
The LapVR System includes hardware and software designed by Immersion Medical and comes in a self-contained cart.
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 a physics-based simulation that responds to user actions. Proprietary 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.
