VirtaMed GynoS™

  • Single-platform training for IUD, embryo transfer, and hysteroscopy
  • Teach diverse cases in a risk-free environment
  • Prepare trainees for clinical practice

VirtaMed GynoS™ provides life-like gynecology training at no risk to live patients. It is the most realistic virtual-reality simulator for uterine sounding, IUD insertion, embryo transfer, and hysteroscopy. Trainees learn using original medical instruments, making their skill directly transferable to a clinical setting. Ghost tools demonstrate the correct movements and the unique patient comfort scale makes sure the doctor gets the most realistic experience possible.

What I like best about the VirtaMed GynoS™ is the combination of real tactile sensation provided by the pelvic model and the large variety of training scenarios thanks to virtual-reality simulation. We have been working hard to make the feeling of entering the cervix, passing through the internal os, and carefully touching the uterine fundus a life-like experience. At any time of the running procedure, if desired, GynoS™ gives detailed instructions on what to do and what not to do, as well as immediate feedback when something is going wrong. I am convinced that the GynoS™ will improve education in gynecology, and thus enhance patient safety and comfort.

1st Trimester Transvaginal Obstetric UltrasoundNEW

The realistic tactile sensation of the transvaginal probe facilitates the transfer of skills from the simulator to the patient. Focusing on fetal ages between 5 and 12 weeks, clinicians learn to assess the viability of the 1st trimester fetus, including pregnancies of unknow location and ectopic pregnancies.

2nd Trimester Transabdominal Obstetric UltrasoundNEW

As the first simulator incorporating the 20+2 scanning protocol, the VirtaMed ultrasound simulator offers the most systematic approach to training the mid-trimester scan. Equipped with a proprietary probe that allows for a free navigation across the entire abdomen, the simulator experience is as close to real life settings as possible. Clinicians can practice across over 50 cases, various fetal positions, different placenta locations, and doppler imaging. Fetal ages range between 14-26 weeks.

Embryo transfer

Developed in collaboration with the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), the ultrasound-assisted embryo transfer simulator allows trainees access to expert-informed courses and a library of increasingly complex cases. Trainees gain transferable skills by practicing with authentic instruments, such as an adjustable transabdominal ultrasound probe, bendable catheters, a syringe, and a stylette. Training cases are based on real patient ultrasound images, and five different anatomies combined with a multitude of virtual cases prepare the trainee for clinical practice. This module accommodates three transfer techniques: afterload, transfer with trial, or transfer without trial.

IUD placement

A diversity training cases teach doctors how to safely insert intra-uterine devices (IUDs) such as the Mirena®, Skyla®/Jaydess® or ParaGard® in anteverted or retroverted uteri, along with nulliparous or parous patient cases. Repeatable cases help trainees to quickly master the relevant motor skills while safely handling and correctly placing the inserts. Again, the patient comfort scale gives immediate feedback on the safety and quality of the procedure. Outside views and ghost tools guide the trainee during the first placements. Afterwards, unguided procedures are recorded and can be looked at for debriefing.

Hysteroscopy

Accelerate student learning with a variety of pathologies and cases at all difficulty levels. GynoS™ hysteroscopy offers on-demand, comprehensive, and risk-free endoscopy training where students use original medical instruments to treat virtual fibroids, establish uterine distension, clear viewing conditions, and how to safely handle loop electrode and rollerball for resection, coagulation, and endometrial ablation. For the more experienced learner, there are patients with more serious gynecological pathologies, including multiple polyps, intramural fibroids, uterine adhesions, or a septum. In the risk-free environment provided by simulation, more advanced endoscopic techniques can also be trained. For example, reducing the fluid inflow leads to a reduction of uterine distension, allowing the intramural parts of fibroids naturally to expand into the cavity for easier resection.

VirtaMed GynoS™ 

VirtaMed GynoS™ is available with a full pelvic model. The pelvic model can be mounted onto a mobile platform equipped with a high-end PC and height-adjustable 23” multi touch-screen.

The simulator features a diagnostic hysteroscope with tracked ACworking channel and/or original resectoscope. Other original instruments are also supported, e.g. IUDs (Liletta™, Mirena®, Skyla®/Jaydess®, ParaGard®) and micro-graspers and scissors.

All hysteroscopic scopes feature in- and outlet valves for fluid handling, different cameras (0, 12, and 30 degree optics) and working elements - just as in real life. Trainees can also get used to handling a speculum and tenaculum during IUD placement and uterine sounding.

VirtaMed GynoS™ Portable

The GynoS™ Portable is a lighter version of the full GynoS™ simulator, featuring the full-sized anatomical model, a simulation cube, and a collapsible touchscreen. The portable GynoS™ can be transported comfortably in two luggage-sized boxes, while still supporting all the gear and software modules available. This platform has been used by our clients at conferences around the world.

VirtaMed GynoS™ Mini

 
The GynoS™ Mini is the latest iteration of the GynoS™. The anatomic pelvic model is stripped down to contain only the essential parts, and the software can be operated on a simple laptop. The Mini, weighing only 22 kg when packed, is so compact that it can be carried as a single piece of luggage on any commercial flight.

Training & Education


Our T&E team is here to help you get the most out of your simulator. In addition to introductory sessions, the T&E team offers in-depth training in a variety of areas and in multiple languages (English, German, French, Italian and Chinese). The T&E team can organize trainings that are as diverse as our customers, catering to groups of all sizes and interests. For example, they have helped customers develop courses for trainees preparing for the European board exam or the Swiss Orthopedic exam as well as courses for experienced professionals looking to train on the less-common joints such as the ankle. More about the VirtaMed Training & Education services
