Visualize spinal anatomy and pathologies, to show and explain options for an endoscopic access.
3D Demo Endoscopes
Practice or demonstrate endoscopic skills, views and handling options with the demo endoscope – simply connected to a computer or mobile device.
Endoscopic Train Box
Practice initial endoscopic skills and challenge eye-hand coordination.
Train or demonstrate endoscopic methods step-by-step at the lumbar spine.
Simulator for endoscopic access to the lumbar spine in prone and lateral patient position.
These models are for demonstration of spinal structures and proportion size of instruments (CESSYS® , TESSYS® , iLESSYS® , MultiZYTE® ). Visualization of anatomy and pathologies, demonstration of options for an endoscopic access and illustration of structures, such as the Kambin Triangle.
3D Demo Endoscopes
The Demo Endoscope allows clinicians to practice initial endoscopic skills. Connected to a computer or mobile device, it is a simple way to demonstrate the endoscopic approach to a team or to patients. Use the demo endoscope with the endoscopic train box to practice your endoscopic skills in a very handy and simple way and challenge your eye-hand coordination.
Endoscopic Train Box (by Dr. Christoph Hofstetter)
Practicing with this endoscopic train box will help to develop initial endoscopic skills such as targeting, grasping, removing parts and challenge the eye-hand coordination. Best use is combined with the 3D Demo Endoscopes.
The Tissue Models are specifically designed to demonstrate endoscopic methods step-by-step at the lumbar spine using TESSYS®, iLESSYS® and MultiZYTE® systems from joimax®. The anatomy and pathology (placed manually and individually) can be viewed with the endoscope in a realistic anatomical scenario.
Lumbar Training Model
The model comes with a lumbar spine and respective nerves. The surface shows various incisions to insert instruments. With an endoscope the pathology can be viewed and identified. The opening on the side can be used to explain specifically the transforaminal access.
Surgery Simulator Torso
Suitable for all endoscopic approaches e.g. with joimax® TESSYS®, iLESSYS® and MultiZYTE®. The spine is radiopaque and gives excellent and realistic images under fluoroscopy. Under endoscopic view, the orientation and handling of the instruments can be demonstrated and trained. The transforaminal access can also be shown with Intracs® making fluoroscopy unnecessary. For this special option a modified model will be available. The artificial torso comes very close to reality thanks to its multi-pathologic “T10/S5 iliac crest” spine including a spondylolisthesis (grade II) at level L5/S1, an extraforaminally herniated disc at level L3/L4 and a foraminally herniated disc at level L4/L5.
With the joimax® EndoTrainer Plus, the transforaminal surgical technique TESSYS® and the interlaminar surgical technique iLESSYS® can be trained in the prone and lateral patient position. Under realistic conditions and constant monitoring via the navigation software, the fluoroscopic technique can be learned.
