|Title:||SIMULATED TISSUE CARTRIDGE|
A tablet is provided for simulating abdominal first entry in laparoscopic surgery. The tablet includes a screen configured to display visual content input from a connected scope located inside a trocar. The tablet includes a removable simulated tissue insert configured to simulate an abdominal wall located adjacent to the screen. The insert is penetrable from the front of the tablet through to the back of the tablet where the depth of penetration of the tip of the trocar beyond the insert can be evaluated. The penetration of the insert is observed in real time on the screen. Trocars are interchangeable and the insert is penetrable many times before being easily interchanged. The tablet is useful for demonstrating surgical trocars and practicing laparoscopic techniques and approaches to minimize entry-related injuries.
