The first-of-its-kind device integrates augmented reality, AI-guided assessment and tactile feedback. It aims to enhance the surgical skills and training experiences for general, gynecological and laparoscopic surgeons.
Ethicon debuted the system at the American Association of Gynecological Laparoscopists (AAGL) Global Congress. The company said in a news release that its technology “ushers in a new era in surgical training.” The Ethicon Laparoscopic Skills Training Platform offers a highly portable connected digital learning experience. It features adaptability to the learner’s evolving circumstances and integrates into everyday quality education and training routines.
The platform offers personalized and innovative education to expand reach and deepen knowledge. Its built-in learning courses combine tactile skill-building with intelligent learning technology. This provides evidence-based cognitive and psychomotor skill development.
Other features include fundamental surgical training tasks for individual surgeons to hone in on essential skills and techniques. In these tasks, the device detects shapes, orientations and more to provide real-time, objective feedback.
