Simulated Robotic Surgery Platform Helps Surgeons Learn the Machine
November 1, 2015
The Fundamentals of Robotic Surgery (FRS) dome is a model designed specifically for use with the FRS psychomotor skills curriculum. The dome integrates the seven core FRS exercises on a portable, storable, and reusable device. All of the included pieces are meant to provide a standardized platform for the training and testing of robotic surgical skills.
A complete functional device consists of the hard dome shell, magnetically attached towers, outer flesh-colored skin layer, and inner yellow fat layer with embedded vessels. Each skin layer presents three instances of the exercises. The underlying fat layer aligns with the outer skin layer to support exercises which penetrate both layers. Because the exercises are destructive to the skin and fat layers, customers should purchase multiple sets of the skin and fat layers. Customers may purchase prepackages kits, or select any combination of the three layers.
Four Pack Kit
This Four Pack kit contains one set of the hard urethane parts shown in blue, along with four skin layers and four fat layers with all of the necessary accessories. The individual prices for all of these pieces would be $2,350. But, when you purchase as a Four Pack Kit, you receive a $350 discount. Price $2,000 Order Now >>
The full skin kit consists of all pieces necessary for the skin layer of the Fundamentals of Robotic Surgery psychomotor device. Made of silicone, this synthetic tissue replicates actual skin material. The skin layer is placed directly onto the fat layer of the device and accommodates three repetitions of each exercise. This kit also includes the sutures, which are to be installed by the user prior to testing. Price $200
