Founded in 2015, LAPARO is focused on bringing digitalization to medical simulation. As a technology company, LAPARO creates innovative solutions to improve medical professionals’ access to laparoscopic training – that is training for minimally-invasive surgery. Having started the business by developing simple trainers for surgery students who want to learn at home, Laparo moved on to develop an entire line of sophisticated Laparoscopic training solutions. These include advanced professional training stations for use at hospitals, universities, and medical simulation centers. These devices feature complex computer vision software and compact sensors with electronics that analyze a surgeon’s performance and provide valuable feedback. LAPARO medical simulators enable surgeons to feel as though they are standing at the operating table, seeing every move in real-time. This helps surgeons improve their technique, avoid common errors, and gain confidence during operations, enabling them to concentrate single-mindedly on helping their patients. Currently, the company has launched a new solution for laparoscopy training that features advanced virtual reality functionality with cutting-edge technology. Each product introduced by LAPARO makes a leap forward in complexity and sophistication.
