Advanced Ankle Arthroscopy Simulation
VirtaMed ArthroS™ Ankle arthroscopy simulator features an anatomic left ankle model with bones and tendons providing learning-essential haptic feedback.
The model allows for realistic physical manipulation of the joint such as traction and flexion, and trainees can quickly switch between supine and prone positions.
Learn joint navigation
Navigating the ankle joint is difficult, as the joint is narrow and the risk of cartilage or nerve damage higher than in most other arthroscopic surgeries. The curved bone horizon is disorienting, and surgeons often struggle to triangulate the arthroscopic camera in the absence of visual landmarks. With an outside view option and instrument guidance, trainees can hone instrument usage and anatomical knowledge in a risk-free environment.
Diagnostic and therapeutic arthroscopy
Along with the other VirtaMed ArthroS™ modules, the ankle module features diagnostic training that will aid in improving dexterity and triangulation. Trainees are able to manipulate the joint, including applying traction and flexion. They also learn how to maneuver their instruments in the narrow spaces available.
For more advanced trainees, the simulator offers a wide variety of therapeutic patient cases that include anterior impingement, cartilage defects, synovitis, and loose bodies.
Easy integration into a training curriculum
With simulation, the next patient is just a click away!
