The most comprehensive fertility and OB-GYN training platforms developed in close collaboration with societies and subject matter experts
VirtaMed's fertility simulation program results from our close collaboration with ASRM. Our training curriculum meticulously aligns with industry protocols and society-approved benchmarks, making VirtaMed the ultimate mixed-reality training solution for enhancing procedural efficiency and effectiveness.
Train at multiple locations. The portable platform can be easily transported while offering the benefits of realistic anatomy for better skills transfer and team training.
The ergonomic platform is compatible with all ob/gyn training modules, as well as with other VirtaMed specialties, such as general surgery, orthopedics and urology, making it an all-in-one training tool.

GynoS™ ASRM embryo transfer simulator and intrauterine insemination
Developed in collaboration with the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), the Embryo Transfer simulator is used to train clinicians in embryo transfer for both in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intrauterine insemination (IUI), with 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 uteri and cervix models with unique features, such as straight, bent, and tortuous cervical canals, canals with false passages, and retroverted uteri. The simulator accommodates all three embryo transfer techniques defined by the ASRM: afterload, transfer with trial, and transfer without trial.
GynoS™ First trimester transvaginal obstetric ultrasound
The realistic tactile feedback from the transvaginal probe helps clinicians transfer their skills from the ultrasound simulator to real patients. Clinicians learn to assess the viability of first-trimester fetuses, including pregnancies of unknown location and ectopic pregnancies, by focusing on fetal ages between 5 and 12 weeks.
GynoS™ Second trimester transabdominal obstetric ultrasound
As the first simulator to incorporate the ISUOG 20+2 scanning protocol, the VirtaMed ultrasound simulator offers the most systematic approach to examining the second-trimester fetus. Equipped with a proprietary probe that allows for free navigation across the entire abdomen, the simulator provides an experience as close to real-life settings as possible.
Clinicians can practice across over 100 cases, including various fetal positions, different placenta locations, and Doppler imaging. Fetal ages range from 20 to 26 weeks.
A comprehensive, risk-free endoscopy training simulator that offers students a variety of pathologies and cases at all difficulty levels. Students use original medical instruments to practice treating virtual fibroids, establishing uterine distension, clearing viewing conditions, and safely handling loop electrodes and rollerballs for resection, coagulation, and endometrial ablation. For more experienced learners, there are patients with more serious gynecological pathologies, such as multiple polyps, intramural fibroids, uterine adhesions, or a septum. In the risk-free environment of simulation, students can also train on more advanced endoscopic techniques, such as reducing fluid inflow to reduce uterine distension and allowing intramural fibroids to expand into the cavity for easier resection.
LaparoS™ Gynecological laparoscopy
This module offers condensed diagnostic and surgical training cases for laparoscopy with highly realistic scenarios derived from both fertility surgery and other gynecological procedures. It can be combined with the GynoS™ platform for a full OB-GYN offering.
GynoS™ IUD Placement
A diversity of training cases teach doctors how to safely insert intrauterine devices (IUDs) in either anteverted or retroverted uteri, and in both nulliparous and parous patients. Repeatable cases help trainees quickly master the relevant motor skills while safely handling and correctly placing the IUDs. A patient comfort scale provides immediate feedback on the safety and quality of the procedure. Outside views and ghost tools guide the trainee during their first placements. Trainees can then record and review unguided procedures for debriefing.
The Embryo Transfer Simulator is truly a game changer. Universally, those using the simulator have expressed their surprise in how realistic the experience is for them. There has been tremendous excitement generated about the gap filled with this new teaching tool.
