Democratising high fidelity surgical simulation


LapAR™ a true ‘Model T Moment’ in healthcare simulation. Patent pending Augmented Reality (AR) technology, combined with the Inovus Medical box trainer model makes the LapAR™ the world’s first affordable and accessible high fidelity laparoscopic simulator.


The LapAR™ represents a paradigm shift in haptic realism utilising real feel soft tissue models and real laparoscopic instruments to provide unparalleled functionality.


The simulator will allow surgeons to practise a range of procedures across the specialities of general surgery and gynaecology. Instrument tracking technology enables capture of instrument handling and performance metrics with performance data displayed in an online portfolio.

LapAR™ is the world’s first ‘high fidelity laparoscopic box trainer’, bringing together the realism of expensive VR and the affordability of box trainer simulation, truly democratising access to high fidelity laparoscopic simulation and pre-operative warm up. 

Full procedure simulation across gynaecology and general (including paediatric) surgery.
