LAP Mentor


The highest level of hands-on training is offered via two LAP Mentor platforms that are available with or without advanced haptics.  This tactile surgical tools experience provides a true-to-life feel of tissue resistance during surgery simulation.  Ideal for team training, the LAP Mentor is a flexible simulator that allows case parameters to be adjusted to the needs of the program.

It delivers advanced simulation-based laparoscopic training using innovative learning tools. The LAP Mentor™ simulators provide cost-effective solutions suitable for various settings. Each platform is fully compatible with all simulation modules from basic laparoscopic tasks and suturing (with interchangeable suturing handles), to complete procedure training. The LAP Mentor™ platform enables constant addition of new modules.

LAP Mentor III

The newly designed platform addresses all ergonomic needs essential for comfortably practicing laparoscopic skills and procedures:

  • Adjustable height and optimal monitor position ensure maintaining an ideal posture and hands position for long periods of training.
  • Easy access to the touch screen control panel facilitates operation and administration.

A tactile experience of tissue resistance feedback via the surgical tools provides a true-to-life feel of performing laparoscopic surgery.

LAP Mentor Express

The non-haptic laparoscopic training system is available either as a standalone portable desktop platform or with an optional height adjustable tower, which includes a touch screen.

As well as excellent tasks, skills and suturing simulation, high fidelity hands-on training of complex complete laparoscopic procedures is a unique benefit of the LAP Mentor, providing a safe environment for trainees to:

  • Enhance knowledge of the procedure.
  • Practice decision making.
  • Improve technical skills and performance.
  • Perform critical steps of the procedure.
  • Perform errors and practice control of complications.
  • Encounter difficult or rare cases, which may otherwise not be encountered during a training period.
  • LAP Mentor platforms are available with or without tactile experience when using the surgical tools for enhancing true-to-life feel of tissue resistance during surgery simulation, providing the highest level of hands-on training.


Educational Content

Didactic features and educational aids are developed in collaboration with medical educators. Features include:

  • 3D anatomical maps.
  • Procedural instructions – textual and interactive.
  • Videos of real-life procedures.
  • Trocar configurations.
  • Interactive simulation of procedure specific surgical instruments and the surgical environment.


Technical Skills Reporting and Assessment

Performance reports provide feedback to both the learner and the educator in order to assess skill level and training success. Metric categories include:

  • Time and economy of movements.
  • Safety and electrosurgical dissection.
  • Procedural errors
  • Procedure specific checklist items relating to knowledge of procedure, handling of instruments and many more.
