GI Endoscopy – Fundamental Skills training module.
3D Systems has expanded its range of surgical planning and personalised medical solutions with the launch of a new range of breakthrough virtual modules and simulators designed to enhance the training of surgeons and improve patient outcomes.
The company’s newest products include a virtual reality Lobectomy training module, a new GI Endoscopy – Fundamental Skills module, and the RobotiX Mentor for robotic surgery training.
With almost two decades providing tailored medical training solutions, all 3D Systems’ tools can be customised to the exact needs of a program or used for patient-specific pre-operative preparation to provide realistic training experiences.
“We are fortunate to work with leading experts to develop true patient-specific healthcare solutions, that are transforming personalised medicine,” said Kevin McAlea, Chief Operating Officer, Healthcare, 3D Systems. “Our surgical simulators already offer the most realistic hands-on experience to master critical skills to ensure procedural efficiency while reducing patient risk. Our new virtual module and actual 3D printed anatomical models further enhance the effectiveness of our tools and are part of our continuing commitment to deliver training and planning tools that are designed to improve the quality of patient outcomes.”
The new lobectomy training module, available on the Simbionix training platform, helps surgeons prepare for the technically complex video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy procedure. This module is based on an existing modality with comprehensive training tools, and it allows practice in all key components of a lap lobectomy procedure.
3DS will demonstrate its RobotiX Mentor simulator, the only fully interactive, cross-specialty system that addresses the increased demand for robotic surgery training. The RobotiX Mentor enables surgeons and residents to experience partial and entire robotic clinical procedures alongside basic skills and suturing modules for surgeons of all levels of expertise.
3DS will showcase these new surgical training products and 3D printed anatomical models at the 2015 Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons annual meeting in Nashville, Tennessee, April 15-18.
