Dear partners, clients, friends and innovation enthusiasts

Surgical training has finally evolved – that was our message to spread during AGA conference in Zurich. How we did that? With a high-cost movie production on the story of evolution, with gorillas taking over the congress hall, and bananas floating around in the ArthroS™ simulator. If you always wanted to have proof that engineers do have dancing skills: just click on the link below and you’ll be amazed…

But there is one thing our geeks are even better at: developing high-fidelity simulators. The new modules for essential skills and advanced hysteroscopy training and the new laser module for the treatment of benign prostate hyperplasia are visible signs of the continuing progression of our best-in-class simulators – evolution made in Switzerland!

New HystSim™ features: Essential skill training and Advanced hysteroscopy

From essentials training to advanced hysteroscopy

Experienced surgeons need different training than residents. For beginners, navigation and distention are huge challenges, while experienced hysteroscopists know these principles by heart.

That is why HystSim™ now offers difficult cases such as multiple, intramural pathologies or a septum, and easier cases for essential skills training.
