Abstract

The use of simulation in laparoscopic surgery training appears to be qualitatively effective if supported by a suitable evaluation system. The increasing demand of more complex laparoscopic simulators has inspired the creation of a 4d simulator which is a physical low-cost laparoscopic training platform that reproduces the tactile feedback: eLaparo4d) integrated with a software for virtual anatomical realistic scenarios (Unity3D V 4.1). The aim of the present project is to show the platform validation results using two instruments: the face validity and the construct validity. The results have been obtained by a 12 items standardized questionnaire focused on the "user's satisfaction" submitted to two 15 users groups . 4 basic skill have been chosen to be analyzed: laparoscopic focusing and navigation (2 different exercises), Hand - eye - coordination (HEC) (2 different exercises).
