We are proud to announce the launch of the Advanced Training in Laparoscopic Suturing (ATLAS) training kit, the latest edition to the Limbs & Things Range.
Developed in collaboration with the Association of Surgical Educators (ASE), ATLAS aids the training of surgical fellows to confidently handle complicated laparoscopic surgery. ATLAS provides advanced training scenarios by simulating needle handling and suturing under restricted viewing angles and manoeuvrability.
Six unique task modules allow for training in proficiency benchmarks associated with complex minimally invasive surgery. These task modules are as follows:
• Needle handling and positioning
• Forehand suturing
• Backhand suturing
• Confined space suturing
• Suturing under tension
• Continuous suturing
The innovative design means that restricted viewing angle, needle handling, manoeuvrability space, and suture tension skills can all be tested within the ATLAS trainer.
