New Product Launch: Bozzini™ Hysteroscopy Simulator
The Bozzini™ Hysteroscopy Simulator by Inovus Medical is a world first in the delivery of close to life, affordable, turnkey hysteroscopy simulation. The simulator offers an anatomically correct uterus with interchangeable pathologies for practising diagnosis and intraoperative management. Pathologies include endometrial polyps, intrauterine adhesions and endometrial cancer/fibroid as well as a bicornate uterus. The pathologies offer real to life tissue handling and are a low-cost way of delivering repeated practice of these core hysteroscopic skills. The uterus can be positioned in an anteverted and retroverted orientation allowing trainees to experience the different approach needed for each.
The Simulator is supplied with a standard 4mm hysteroscope, two hysteroscopic instruments, a HD camera system and 15” monitor and monitor stand. The camera and hysteroscope are powered by the proprietary Bozzini™light system. The Bozzini™light system really does put the “key” into this turnkey simulator allowing simulated endoscopic procedures to be performed with real endoscopic devices at an affordable price and from a compact, table top simulator.
Inovus Medical CTO and lead designer for the Bozzini™ project, Jordan Van Flute, had this to say about the new product: “The Bozzini™ Hysteroscopy Simulator offers a unique solution to the delivery of hysteroscopic simulation. Prior to its launch, options for training in hysteroscopy were limited to basic uterine models or full VR systems. Both of these options represent their own drawbacks. Basic uterine models require the acquisition and addition of expensive imaging systems, light sources and instruments, representing a significant overall cost to deliver training. The VR simulators represent a similar barrier to entry with high price points and often-expensive ongoing licencing fees and maintenance costs.”
The fully turnkey Bozzini™ solves these issues by providing everything you need to deliver comprehensive hysteroscopic skills training in a single package. The simulator allows practice of camera holding and navigation, instrument handling, tissue handling, recognition and diagnosis of pathologies and management of pathologies. The interchangeable consumable pathologies are low cost and easy to change in and out of the simulator making it highly practical as well as cost effective for repeated training and education activities.
The launch of the Bozzini™ is supported by EIT Health through a 50,000 Euro Headstart award. The Heastart funding, awarded in June, came at the perfect time in the development of the product, enabling Inovus to expedite the final R&D stages and test bed activity. Having now tested the product with major simulation centres across the UK the remainder of the Headstart funding will be utilised in the launch and marketing of the new device.
