Realistic and life-like simulation for all core robotic skills
Mimic’s proprietary® simulation engine is at the heart of Mimic’s mission to prepare surgeons to deliver better care. Mimic’s MSim® software provides realistic simulation to address all core robotic skills:
- Wristed instrument dexterity
- Camera/endoscope control and clutching
- Grasping and retraction
- Needle driving, suturing, and knot-tying
- Monopolar and bipolar energy application
- Safe and efficient use of 3rd instrument arm
- Advanced instrumentation such as robotic staplers, vessel sealers, and clip appliers
Advanced curriculum development and sharing
In addition to simulation training, MSim® provides best-in-class administration tools for educators to create, import, and export customized training protocols, as well as assign and track user’s progress through designated curricula.
The global leader in simulation
MSim® was first unveiled to world in 2008 to provide the first-ever simulation training for the da Vinci® robot. Since 2010, Intuitive Surgical has been licensing MSim® exercises from Mimic, which have been deployed on approximately 3,000 da Vinci® Skills Simulators, and it is estimated that over 6 million Mimic exercise sessions have been performed.
Since 2012, Mimic has extended MSim® beyond the dV-Trainer® to provide the benefits of Mimic simulation to team training (Xperience Team Trainer™ ), procedure-specific modules (MaestroAR® ) and to Mimic's new portable platform for console training (FlexVR™ ).
