The Mimic is a da Vinci robotic surgeon virtual reality simulator. The system very closely mimicks the actual control console used with the da Vinci surgical robot. It is connected to a computer system which processes the inputs from the controller into the virtual environment, allowing one to practice robotic, laparoscopic techniques and procedures.
State-of-the-art virtual reality simulator for multiple laparoscopic surgical procedures and techniques. Device incorporates a built-in haptic feedback system which very closely mimics the actual operational environment. This includes distinguishing between harder and softer tissues. The system additionally incorporates a randomized generator for characteristics such as vessel diameter, vessel length, blood volume, etc., allowing the program to randomly vary these characteristics on a case by case basis, further mimicking conditions found in actual surgeries.
Virtual reality simulator of the operating room environment, specifically designed to test and improve group dynamics within the OR. Similar to the LapSim, the TeamSim randomly generates scenarios in which certain aspects of the surgical procedure fail, such as a camera failure or an instrument failure. The team must learn how to prioritize and who performs which aspect of troubleshooting, thereby helping to optimize the interactions between the various team members in the OR during dire, high-pressure situations.
Box trainers designed to simulate the laparoscopic surgery environment (the thoracic cavity), which includes ports for trochar insertion and thus laparoscopic tool insertion into a cavity which houses exercise modules. These exercise modules are interchangeable and enhance different laparoscopic surgical maneuvers, including basic object manipulation, suturing and cutting, and endoloop manipulation.
