Presenting the Most Advanced Hysteroscopy Hands-On Training Simulator

Simbionix and VirtaMed have joined forces to provide OB/GYN surgeons with the most comprehensive training system available for diagnostic and therapeutic hysteroscopy. A study by Bajka et al [1] has shown that the HystSim simulator provides highly realistic and useful training for hysteroscopic surgery, with high acceptance ratings for both experienced and novice surgeons.

A Comprehensive Educational Solution

The VirtaMed HystSim hysteroscopy training system is a comprehensive educational solution. Quality didactic tutorials are used to introduce and explain “best practice” in core procedural techniques. This is followed by a high fidelity simulation providing a realistic hands-on experience that includes mastering instruments and managing complications. Multiple, complete hysteroscopy procedures are available to provide a range and depth of relevant pre-clinical experiences. Meaningful and useful objective feedback facilitates and completes the learning process to provide consistent, efficient and cost-effective results that are difficult to achieve using traditional teaching methodologies.
