Project Description


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.

The LapSim System includes a Haptic or Non-Haptic hardware platform with LapCam, a separate laparoscope; Basic Skills, Task Training and Camera Anatomy Training software modules; all necessary computer and monitor hardware; and a height-adjustable rolling SimStation to house the system.

Lapsim Hardware Options:

  • Haptic System – All necessary computer and monitor hardware on a height adjustable rolling SimFrame; includes LapSim core software modules.
  • Non-Haptic System- All necessary computer and monitor hardware on a height adjustable rolling SimStation; includes LapSim core software modules.
    o   Portability Package – Wheeled for convenience (airplane carry-on compatible), the case can be used to set the laptop on for better viewing during use; and has the ability to be utilized in team training with existing OR equipment.
