Red Llama, Inc. (www.redllamainc.com) announced today that the SimPraxis® surgical simulation platform is now available on iOS and the SimPraxis Laparoscopic Hysterectomy Trainer was released to the Apple App Store. The Trainer can be purchased from the iTunes App Store on your computer or from the App Store app on your iPad.
SimPraxis training modules provide a level of detailed surgical training unmatched outside of the operating room experience through the use of high-fidelity video in highly interactive simulations, didactics, and anatomy quizzes, which now run on the iPad as well as personal computer.
"We are excited to be able to offer our clients the flexibility of using the SimPraxis Lap Hyst Trainer on both the Windows and iOS platforms. The ease of downloading and the video quality on the iPad, iPad Air and iPad Mini has exceeded our expectations," said David Robison, Red Llama VP of Operations and Product Management.
"With the SimPraxis Platform now converted to iOS we will be able to release our other laparoscopic surgical trainers (Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy and Nissen Fundoplication) in the near future as well as all new trainers," said Charles Ruggiero, Red Llama VP of Platform Development.
The learning objectives of the SimPraxis Trainers are: to orient the user to the roles of the surgeon and assistant; learn the relevant anatomy; learn the specific steps of the procedure; understand the required port placements; become familiar with the necessary instruments; and master the key risks of the laparoscopic hysterectomy. Users also have the opportunity to review the potential errors, injuries and complications associated with each step.
All actions and decisions made in each Trainer are captured for complete formative tracking and summative scoring in order to provide meaningful and accurate assessment.
