Laparoscopic Simulation Based on Validated Concepts

LaparoS™ is based on validated studies which demonstrate simulation as a valuable training and assessment tool in laparoscopy, complemented by long-term cooperation with a group of leading laparoscopic surgeons in Switzerland and internal expertise from Dr. Martina Vitz, the co-author of several studies leading VirtaMed’s Training & Education team.

VR is more likely to be successful if it is systematically integrated into a well-though-out education and training program which objectively assesses technical skills improvements proximate to learning experience.
