Independent validation, proven results


At Mimic, we understand that independent validation is of utmost importance to our customers. We are proud to say that the dV-Trainer® has demonstrated face, content, construct, and concurrent validity in multiple studies. More recently, studies have concluded that the dV-Trainer® is comparable to dry-lab training on the da Vinci® robot (concurrent validity), and efforts are underway to assess the predictive validity of the simulator.

Search for a Study by year, publication, institution or validity.

Validation Definitions:
Face: Realistic look and feel   Content: Useful as a training tool   Construct: Ability to distinguish between Novice and Expert users    Concurrent: Compares to a similar or related construct (Dry Labs, Tissue Lab, etc.)  Predictive: Predicts actual performance in the O.R.
