The system features 13 training modules and over 65 tasks and cases, including general surgery, gynecology, urology, bariatric surgery and colon and rectal surgery. Add-on modules are continuously being developed in pace with ongoing surgical advances, to provide the most value possible for the LAP Mentor system.

The Only Laparoscopic Simulator Proven to Improve Performance in the OR

The LAP Mentor’s proprietary technology enables high fidelity procedure simulation that is backed by over 50 clinical validations. Learners are able to experience a wide range of complex laparoscopic tasks and procedures in a safe environment.

The highest level of hands-on training is offered via two LAP Mentor platforms that are available with or without advanced haptics.  This tactile surgical tools experience provides a true-to-life feel of tissue resistance during surgery simulation.  Ideal for team training, the LAP Mentor is a flexible simulator that allows case parameters to be adjusted to the needs of the program.

Enhancing Patient Safety

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.
