Endoscopy Training System

Product No. KKMW39


You will receive:

  • Colon model with cover
  • Straight colon model with feedback tones and lights
  • Scope manipulation screen overlay
  • Simulated biopsy tool
  • Power supply
  • User guide 

Specifically designed to improve endoscopic performance as measured by national assessment programs such as the Fundamentals of Endoscopic Surgery (FES), Global Assessment of Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Skills (GAGES) and Assessment of Competency in Endoscopy (ACE).

Developed in partnership with Kyoto Kagaku and in collaboration with the development team at the National Capital Region Simulation Consortium and the USU / Walter Reed Department of Surgery.

Skills Gained:

  • Scope manipulation
    • Performing basic endoscopic navigation, using tip deflection and torque of the scope
  • Tool targeting
    • Hand-eye co-ordination with biopsy forceps and an endoscope
  • Loop management
    • Scope navigation to manage the correct reduction of a standard alpha loop
  • Mucosal inspection
    • Via the colon, evaluation and identification of polyps
  • Retroflexion
    • Bending the endoscope backward to identify and navigate to targets. Simulates evaluation of cardia of stomach and distal rectum

Product Qualities:

realism
  • Built upon a platform identified as highly realistic in trial comparing GI endoscopy simulators
  • Allows use of actual colonoscope or gastroscope
  • Requires use of suction and insufflation for optimal performance
  • Haptic feedback nearly identical to actual endoscopy
features
  • Electronic sensors provide visual and auditory feedback and help track task completion
  • Five discrete tasks facilitate deliberate practice and distributed training
  • Peer reviewed evidence for effective use in assessment and training
  • Established proficiency based skills curriculum with expert derived performance benchmarks for each task
versatility
  • Represents fundamental skills for all types of endoscopy
  • Can be used to simulate a simple colonoscopy, redundant sigmoid, alpha loop, reverse alpha loop, and others
  • All tasks are re-usable so there is no additional cost for consumables

You will receive:

  • Colon model with cover
  • Straight colon model with feedback tones and lights
  • Scope manipulation screen overlay
  • Simulated biopsy tool
  • Power supply
  • User guide
