Advanced Course in Endoscopy and Laparoscopy (ACEL)



The Laproscopic Surgical Simulator, is an advanced virtual reality based laparoscopic simulator which permits surgical students to experience hands-on laparoscopic surgery before ever touching a real patient. It replicates laparoscopic procedures with accurate haptic technology. The patient cases are developed using real patient data and physiological models, to enhance this training experience.

Endoscopic Virtual Reality Simulator  both for Upper & Lower gastrointestinal training. This new generation of interventional simulation, uses advanced graphics that depict anatomical structures with stunning realism. The haptic technology that accurately replicates the use of a scope during the procedure, brings this learning exercise so close to an actual OR experience.

All patient cases are developed using real patient data and physiological models. An extensive library of pathologies can be utilized for the training curriculum.

The simulators tracks each and every action during the procedure, and gives detailed results to the trainer to give an analytical feedback to the learner during the post debrief session, metrics to track time, proficiency, dexterity and complications on each task and compare a learner’s results with the instructor’s established acceptable results.
