Our system is the highest fidelity training platform available for medical education. With an anatomical gift, simulated blood and a custom pulsatile pressure system, envivoPC™ replicates a live patient as closely as possible. Although mannequins are undoubtedly useful for training for certain procedures and techniques, our system provides the highest quality and most realistic training platform to advance surgical readiness in trainees with previous mannequin experience.
The envivoPC™ Solution
Our research and experience show that students learn better and gain greater confidence when working with human tissue compared to a plastic simulator or computer. Surgeons have called our system the best possible training platform.
Students perform realistic surgeries without the risk of patient injury or death
Life-like bleeding mimics intense situations with challenging and realistic physical and time constraints
Practice in high pressure situations builds muscle memory for the skills that save lives in the operating room
It eliminates the need for live specimens and veterinarians
The system is portable, flexible and cost effective and can be used for multiple procedures, with multiple students, over multiple days
Highlights of Recent Labs and Training
University of Washington, Harborview Medical Center Lab
During our two-day training lab, the system ran for ten hours each day, allowing for more than fifteen procedures to be performed on a single cadaver with very little fluid loss and no breakdown.
In front of an audience of senior residents and fellows, we demonstrated the complications that can arise from bleeding during a surgery. If this demo had been a real trauma situation, the patient would not have survived the blood loss.
Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center New Orleans
We conducted a boot camp for more than thirty first-year residents from local hospitals. Over eight hours, the residents were simultaneously trained in multiple procedures, including central line access, trocar and laparoscopic surgery.
