The EndoVR enables learners literally “get a feel” for both gastrointestinal and bronchial assessment. State-of-the-art haptic technology provides active force feedback during insertion and removal of the scope from the mannequin as well as correct anatomic and physiologic responses throughout the procedures.
EndoVR features advanced modular curriculum derived from actual patient data, and permits the upload of supplemental multimedia content to enrich the learner’s experience. Administrators may easily customize case parameters to match each learner’s performance level. At the conclusion of each case, learners are debriefed with evidence-based metrics and outcome measurements. The recorded metrics and post-case debriefing provide analytical feedback for continuous trainee development.
“Now, using simulation, instead of walking in as novices, our fellows walk in with a fairly high level of experience.”
- Dr. James C. Reynolds, Interim Chair of Medicine, President of the Philadelphia Gastroenterology Training Group, Drexel University College of Medicine
“In the operating room, charges are made by the minute.
The repetition provided by the simulators can reduce time in the OR. This translates to cost savings without compromising quality of care.”
- Dr. Matthew Blum, Section Chief of Thoracic Surgery, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine
EndoVR offers three learning modules covering bronchoscopic, upper gastrointestinal tract (GI) and lower gastrointestinal tract (GI) procedures, including transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA), GI bleeding and introduction to colonoscopy and biopsy. The modules help users quickly develop an understanding of relevant anatomical structures and the procedural methods for conducting the exams.
Redesigned in 2012 for better performance, the new EndoVR is easier to configure, requires fewer clicks throughout and saves time for instructors. The streamlined modern design delivers an enriched end-user experience. With a brand-new user interface, learners can interact with cutting-edge graphics while instructors enjoy enhanced ease-of-use.
