OBSTETRICS AND GYNECOLOGY
Our advanced models simulate all critical elements of a specific procedure. The materials included have biomechanical characteristics similar to those of human tissue, and behave in a similar manner during cutting, manipulation, suturing, and electro-cautery. Relevant anatomical elements like bowel, vasculature, fat, and other features of internal viscera are included. The advanced trainers have full medical imaging compatibility (CT scan, 2-dimensional and 3D ultrasound) and simulate true operative metrics of performance (blood loss, tumor margins, operative and ischemia time, amongst others). Please contact us for product and pricing information.
SIM is developing advanced surgical training models for the following procedures:
Minimally invasive surgery is becoming the standard of care for pelvic pathology and new training modalities are needed to prevent errors on live patients. Our soft tissue pelivic trainer is ideal for practicing laparoscopic and/or robotic skills on a life-like bleeding replica. Seen in the video is a robotic myomectomy that allows the surgeon to practice all steps of tumor resection including, intraoperative ultrasound, blunt/sharp dissection skills, hand-held suction, use of the 3rd arm tenaculum, and hysterorrhaphy.
