Immersive, Risk-Free Laparoscopic Training Environment

Learn essential laparoscopic techniques and hone surgical decision-making skills

CAE LapVR Surgical Simulator for Laparoscopy Training

Practice, learn and improve minimally invasive surgical (MIS) skills, from basic to advanced laparoscopic procedures with the CAE LapVR simulator. LapVR gives learners the opportunity to develop proficiency in techniques such as suturing, knot tying and loop ligation as well as some frequently performed laparoscopic surgeries like gall bladder removal and tubal occlusion for risk-free learning before they touch their first patient. Unlike other simulators, LapVR permits the upload of supplemental multimedia content to enrich the learner’s experience. The simulator supports setup for individuals or groups, and easy course planning. 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.
