Employing the original instruments for training eases the transfer of skills to the operating room and makes the surgeon familiar with the look and feel of your devices. Adapted original tools create a complete simulation experience and familiarization with your devices. For diagnostic and operative procedures surgical tools like a grasper, morcellator, shaver, resectoscope, camera, or punch can be utilized.
