Robotic Essential Skills
This module enables the trainee to acquire basic-level skills required to build confidence and ease in robotic surgery techniques. Exercises are based on physical box trainer tasks within the Robotic Training Network (RTN) and within the Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery Program (FLS) developed by SAGES. A non-anatomic setting provides a relaxed environment outside of the operating room, aimed at improving basic eye-hand coordination, bimanual manipulation, wrist articulation, camera, clutching, depth perception, and atraumatic handling.
Optimal team training is made possible by connecting the LAP Mentor Express to the RobotiX Mentor. This allows the surgical assistant to practice the skills together with the robotic surgeon in the same training environment.
