SPINE Mentor

True-To-Life Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Training

True-To-Life Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Training

The SPINE Mentor simulator combines synthetic soft tissues, a 3D-printed spine model, and advanced virtual reality capabilities to enable training with a highly accurate tactile sensation and visual realism.

It enables practicing a complete spine intervention under real-time fluoroscopic guidance, including palpation, needle positioning using LOR technique and puncture.  Immediate feedback guides the trainee until a successful puncture.

The simulator is suitable for anesthesiologists and pain medicine surgeons.
