The Most Advanced Technology

The highest level of hands-on training is offered via two LAP Mentor platforms that are available with or without advanced haptics. The most realistic tactile surgical tools experience provides a true-to-life feel of tissue resistance during surgery simulation. State-of-the-art soft tissue interaction capabilities allow for simulation of the most complex anatomy, different tissue types and dissection planes and realistic tool – tissue interaction. Unprecedented graphics brings the experience as close to reality as possible. Wide range of surgical instruments and virtual trocar configuration provide flexibility and practice of different approaches to the procedure and decision making. Easy plug-and-play Team Training setting is ideal for reinforcement of non-technical skills and enhancement of the OR team performance. Newly developed Proctor mode further enhances the training by enabling real-time intervention of the instructor during the procedure.

Enhancing Patient Safety

The LAP Mentor’s proprietary technology enables high fidelity procedure simulation that is backed by over 60 clinical validations. In a rapidly developing field, with obstacles such as the reduction of working hours by legislation, it has become difficult to provide the necessary training in the operating room. The LAP Mentor provides a safe and motivating learning environment, as well as providing a complete educational solution integrated into training programs. Scientific data supports the effective use in training and assessment, proving transfer of skills to the OR.
