Immersion Medical has added a module that includes Suturing and Knot Tying procedures and Needle Orientation and Driving skills to their LaparoscopyVR (LapVR) surgical simulator. The simulator's suturing procedure provides:
- Practice in ligating loops, simple-interrupted, continuous and horizontal-mattress techniques.
- The ability to present users with a realistic animated bowel of lifelike thickness.
- An experience where users must correctly drive the needle through exterior and internal surfaces of the bowel, bring the cut edges together, and tie knots securely.
