VirtaMed GynoS™

  • Covers the entire spectrum of OB/GYN training: from obstetric ultrasound, to hysteroscopy, embryo transfer, and IUD placement
  • Validated to accelerate the learning process and improve student performance
  • Provides the most realistic training environment possible with photorealistic graphics and natural haptic feedback
  • Reduces training time and cost with proficiency-based training and assessment

Ensure that your trainees reach a defined level of proficiency in ob/gyn before examining real patients. VirtaMed GynoS™ provides a structured training approach based on progressively more complex cases. Trainees learn to recognize pathologies and handle complications, while having the time to ask questions during procedures and reflect on findings. Through the use of original medical instruments, skills are directly transferable to clinical settings.

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 ultrasound 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 unknown 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 examining the first and second trimester fetus. 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 100 cases, various fetal positions, different placenta locations, and doppler imaging. Fetal ages range between 10-26 weeks.

Embryo Transfer

Developed in collaboration with the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), the Embryo Transfer simulator is used for training in embryo transfer in In Vitro Fertilization and Intrauterine Insemination, both under and without ultrasound guidance. The simulator combines an anatomically correct pelvic model, original Wallace® and Cook Guardia™ catheters, and a proprietary transabdominal probe. Training cases are based on real patient ultrasound images and include interchangeable unique uteri / cervix models: straight, bent, and tortuous cervical canal, canal with false passage, and a retroverted uterus. The simulator accommodates the three transfer techniques, as defined by the ASRM: afterload, transfer with trial, and transfer without trial.

IUD Placement

A diversity training cases teach doctors how to safely insert intra-uterine devices (IUDs) 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.

Modular Platform

The modular platform is compatible with all ob/gyn training modules, as well as with other VirtaMed specialties, such as orthopedics and urology, making it an all-in-one training tool.

  • Anatomically correct pelvic model for realistic tactile sensation
  • Sub-millimeter tracking of instruments
  • Interchangeable modules for a comprehensive ob/gyn training: transvaginal and transabdominal ultrasound, hysteroscopy, embryo transfer, and IUD placement
  • High-fidelity images containing anatomical structures, pathologies, and complications 


 

Portable Platform

The portable platform is a lighter and more compact version of the full GynoS™ platform. As it can be easily transported in two luggage-sized boxes, the portable platform is the ideal solution for teaching at different sites.

This contains the anatomically correct pelvic model and tracked instruments, as per the modular platform.

Support

We offer several different levels of service and support packages tailored specifically to the needs of hospitals and training centers. These can provide you with completed coverage (and peace of mind) when it comes to protecting your investment and getting the most out of your simulator. More about VirtaMed customer service and support

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
