Johnson & Johnson Institute Simulates “Hands On” Learning at a Distance
How to train safely with COVID-19 restrictions
The Johnson and Johnson Institute developed an effective method to train safely at a distance to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
Each “simulator in a box” is shipped to teaching hospitals in a compact transport case with hygiene guidelines for using the technology in a safe manner. The Johnson & Johnson Institute also provides a “train the trainer” remote session to help medical educators optimize the simulator’s use to support their learning objectives.
“One of the impacts of this pandemic is that it has encouraged us all to reexamine the status quo and challenged us to discover new and better ways of training and educating the surgical community,” said Tim Mauri, Director of Technology & Innovation for the Johnson & Johnson Institute. “The potential to expand our work with SIMENDO is a great example of this.”

Training OR nurses to safely assist during robotic surgery
With the rise of robotic surgery, laparoscopic surgeons are no longer the only group to benefit from extensive training to safely perform laparoscopic surgery. OR nurses are increasingly asked to assist by using laparoscopic instruments to provide the surgeon with the tools needed during a procedure. For this reason OR nurses have embraced the Simendo as their most popular training tool. Featured below is an informative article about OR nurses using the Simendo.Read more +
