Why Should You Create Your Own Custom Medical Simulator?

1. ROI Secured: Huge Decrease in Training Costs

Simulators decrease the costs of disposable material throughout physician training. There are no extra costs involved whether a physician needs 2, 20, or 200 procedures to reach proficiency. Equipment breakage costs are also decreased. After a short period of time the long term financial benefits outweigh the initial investment so investing in simulation pays off.

2. Increase Your Sales

More physicians are willing to attempt a first case, because they will build up an understanding of the procedure which is realistic. These initial cases go quicker, better, and smoother, with a simulator, which creates a better patient and physician experience. The clinicians’ learning curve towards independence is shorter and they are more able to handle challenging cases, and errors in real procedures are decreased.

3. Use Your Original Medical Devices From the OR

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.

Simulation training also lets you perform over 10 procedures in an hour, which means a more efficient and comfortable learning curve and effective training of physicians. Simulators are available 24/7 and are set up in around 15 minutes, meaning there is no need for messy cadaver training.
