In 2018 Inovus Medical launched the the bozzini™ Hysteroscopy Simulator the world’s first training device that delivers close to life, affordable, turnkey hysteroscopy simulation, the launch of which was supported by EIT Health through a 50,000 Euro Headstart award.
Soon after its entry to the market It became evident that there was an opportunity for Inovus to develop this simulator further in order to meet the needs of medical device companies and simulation providers who already possess the imaging required for hysteroscopy simulation but were lacking in access to affordable and highly realistic anatomical models. In answer to this the Inovus design team have created the bozzini™ Hysteroscopy Basic.
The basic package allows the end user to experience hands on “wet-lab” simulation thanks to its fully irrigatable uterine models. The models are specifically designed to offer highly realistic simulation of irrigation management during hysteroscopy. Each wetlab uterus comes complete with 8 to 10 resectable polyps that are manufactured form a proprietary water-based substrate. The polyp substrate reacts like real tissue when operated on with energy devices and morcellators making this the perfect option for demonstration and training of medical devices. The real to life tissue not only shows medical devices in their best light but also offers the perfect platform for affordable, high volume training with standard hysteroscopy instruments.
The bozzini™ Hysteroscopy Basic comes complete with a drip tray as standard, allowing irrigation fluid to be captured throughout use so the system can be used anywhere from the skills lab to a conference centre, making it an extremely clean and portable solution for training the skills required for operative and office based hysteroscopy procedures.
Inovus Medical CEO and Medical Director, Dr Elliot Street, said “The basic system is primarily designed for use with our wetlab uterine models which I have to say are a real achievement in design and functionality from our R&D team who have created extremely realistic pathologies that encourage affordable, high volume hysteroscopy simulation and work perfectly with an array of medical devices. We plan to release more variants of the wetlab model over the coming months that will further add to the training experience possible with the bozzini Basic system.”
