Dear partners, clients, friends and innovation enthusiasts

Our new generation of simulators enters the market! PelvicSim™ and ArthroS™ are currently on a road show at IMSH conference in Orlando, USA and at Arab Health conference in Dubai, UAE.

PelvicSim™ combines highly realistic simulation software with rubber model hardware. This approach broadens the possibilities for simulation in the gynecology field. Now, gynecologists can train how to place intrauterine devices. And they experience a hysteroscopy simulator that appears very close to a real patient – now even from the outside.

Our simulators around the world: Meet us in there!

PelvicSim™: IUD insertion and more

The new PelvicSim™ combines high-fidelity virtual reality simulation with the advantages of a traditional box model: realistic tactile feedback. It offers training for the placement of intrauterine devices such as Mirena® or ParaGard®.

Also other simulation modules like essential hysteroscopy skills training or Essure® placement work on this new platform.
