MetadataShow full item record
Because of the long and variable learning curve of laparoscopic surgery, before its actual application, awell-designed practical simulating instruments like laparoscopic training boxes are needed. But becauseof unfavourable cost-effectiveness and huge sizes of these boxes, surgeons hardly procure, and carry them.We aimed to design a new, cheap, light and handy laparoscopic training box. Our training box is made ofaluminium and used with smartphone or tablet. There is no need for a power unit. Our foldable box hasdimensions of 52x38x4 cm, and weighs 2.8 kg and foldable. There are 5 working ports in it. Compared toits alternatives “Fu-Lap T-Box” is much cheaper, lighter and more comfortable. In our opinion it is possibleto design and use a new cheaper and portable simulator to gain more hands-on experience before the realsurgery.
