IUD placement and more on new PelvicSim™January 21, 2013
PelvicSim™ is more than just a new platform for HystSim™. It is the first virtual reality simulator for uterine sounding and IUD insertion.
At the IMSH conference in Orlando, Florida, USA, we present a new platform for our hysteroscopy simulator: the PelvicSim™. In addition to the existing HystSim™ that runs on this new platform, there are also new modules.
Virtual patients on PelvicSim™ include uterine sounding in anteverted and retroverted cavities and the placement of intrauterine devices.
The version and flexion of the uterus can be straightened for the procedure with a tenaculum forceps. Ghost tools show the correct movement, and a patient comfort scale gives the doctor feedback on how comfortable the patient feels during the procedure.
