Training Program

Laparo Training Program is a unique and comprehensive skills training program for learning laparoscopy. Students on this training path are guided from the simplest exercises all the way to the most advanced suturing techniques, complex instrument movements, and techniques. By breaking down each complex skill into separate exercises and by steadily increasing the difficulty, this program aims to make the steep learning curve easier for the trainee.

The program is divided into four parts: Basic Skills, Intermediate Instrument Specific Skills, Basic Suturing, and Advanced Suturing. Each chapter features a variety of exercises with detailed tutorials and educational materials. All of these exercises are performed on special training modules which make analysis and evaluation possible with the systems we have in our high-end systems such as the Analytic and the Apex.
LAPAROSCOPIC TRAINING PROGRAM
Genesis

Genesis

The Laparo Training Program is a comprehensive program of exercises that guide a trainee through the development of all the manual skills necessary to develop techniques with laparoscopic instruments. The courses are designed to take trainees from the first steps and guide them along with all the way up to complex suturing techniques.

This program has been designed to be compatible across the entire Laparo product line-up. This includes the simpler low-cost trainers designed for individual customers such as the Laparo Aspire and Advance, as well as advanced virtual reality training stations intended for medical simulation centers and educational facilities. All of the modules used in this program are also backward compatible with all existing Laparo trainers.
Moving forward we believe that in this way we can maximize the number of exercises while minimizing the number and size of the necessary accessories necessary along with our laparoscopic training devices. Although we will continue offering the modules which have existed in our products for the last several years, we believe that these new modules will eventually replace the old selection.

LAPARO Training Program for Laparoscopy is has been developed in collaboration with practicing surgeons. Detailed video recordings and descriptions walk trainees through and explain how to best use these modules step-by-step.
ADVANTAGES

4 Complete Laparoscopic Courses

1
Level 1
Level 1 (Basic Skills)
  • 14 Tasks

This course walks the trainee through 14 different exercises which are focused on developing entry-level instrument handling skills. These skills go along with educational segments which explain the core concepts useful for accelerating the development of Laparoscopic skills. After this course, the trainee will be ready to learn suturing.

What is practiced
  • a sense of flexibility
  • tool control
  • moving objects from hand to hand
  • spacial perception
  • string manipulation
  • precision in guiding the tools
  • dexterity in transferring small and light elements between instruments

 

 

2
Level 2
Level 2 (Basic+Suturing)
  • 25 Tasks

This course takes place entirely on the Suturing Module. It splits up suturing skills into easier-to-learn sub-skills. By first training to rotate and handle needles and then to tangle and untangle the pieces of rope, the program gradually takes trainees step-by-step before finally introducing more complex techniques for creating intracorporeal knots. At the end of this course, the trainee will have acquired a basic understanding of laparoscopic suturing techniques.

What is practiced
  • learning knots
  • continuous suturing
  • a sense of flexibility
  • tool control
  • moving objects from hand to hand
  • spacial perception
  • string manipulation
  • precision in guiding the tools
  • dexterity in transferring small and light elements between instruments
3
Level 3
Level 3 (Intermediate Instrument Specific Skills)
  • 34 Tasks

These exercises take place mostly on the Tissue Holder Module and rely heavily on consumable silicone inserts which simulate the properties of real-life tissue. By doing these exercises the surgical trainee can learn to execute blunt and sharp tissue dissection as well as simulate vessel clipping, ligation, and resection. This course also includes valuable techniques for handling scissors as well as tricks and tips for using clip applicators inside the operating area. At the end of this course, the trainee will have acquired all the necessary skills and knowledge to handle instruments on tissue.

What is practiced
  • learning knots
  • continuous suturing
  • a sense of flexibility
  • tool control
  • moving objects from hand to hand
  • spacial perception
  • string manipulation
  • precision in guiding the tools
  • dexterity in transferring small and light elements between instruments
4
Level 4
Level 4 (Advanced Suturing Skills)
  • 46 Tasks

Also taking place on the Suturing Module, this course elevates the difficulty and complexity of suturing skills. An Advanced Suturing Platform is used to create challenging configurations. In several exercises, this platform limits the amount of space available around the target tissues, and in several others, it is used to suspend silicone inserts for learning how to suture under tension. The course finally concludes with a variety of anastomosis exercises which are intended to be challenging even for skilled practicing surgeons seeking to push their skills to the limits. By the end of this course, the trainee will have demonstrated skill in all aspects of Laparoscopic procedures.

What is practiced
  • learning knots
  • continuous suturing
  • a sense of flexibility
  • tool control
  • moving objects from hand to hand
  • spacial perception
  • string manipulation
  • precision in guiding the tools
  • dexterity in transferring small and light elements between instruments
