The Inovus appendix model is a low cost, single use model designed to allow training surgeons to work through the critical steps in laparoscopic appendectomy. The product represents ‘standard anatomy’ including terminal caecum, Ilium, appendix and mesoappendix, whilst offering close to life tissue handling and real time haptic feedback.
The product has been developed by the Inovus design team alongside our in house clinicians in order to offer the most real to life appendectomy model on the market. This product will allow training surgeons to carry out multiple simulated laparoscopic appendectomies at an affordable cost. Better yet the model has been designed to be compatible with all existing laparoscopic ‘box trainers’ on the market.
The Inovus appendectomy model can be held in place with the Inovus suturing base or the soft tissue retaining clip available on the Inovus store and on the drop down menu for this product. We strongly recommend buying one of these retaining options for optimal performance of the model.
The core skills that can be developed with this model include:
• Walking the Ilium
• Mobilising the appendix
• Dissection of mesoappendix
• Ligate Appendix
• Dissect Appendix
• Visceral control
Compatible with all box trainer systems
**Please note this is a single use product**
