For thousands of surgeons the Simendo has become an iconic training solution and for so many hospitals an integral part of the training program. Imagine, you have just one product servicing all the needs to level up the skills of laparoscopic doctors.
Our state-of-the-art scientifically validated training programs provide training for all levels and all laparoscopic disciplines, including surgery, gynaecology, urology and OR Nurses.
With the most advanced online platform MySimendo.com available the options are endless. From configuring your simulator and certification programs to online competing. Ask us for a demo to see the full functionality.
The software comes standard with the Laparoscopic Fundamentals. This package contains the most important training programs to obtain the laparoscopic skills, such as novice, intermediate and advanced training curricula including surgical knot tying.
You can extend the Simendo software with several add-ons such as a simulation of a laparoscopic cholecystectomy and camera training for a zero and thirty degrees camera.
If you are looking for a simulator, stop searching, you just found it 🙂.
