“I was looking for a home laparoscopic simulator. As an OBGYN resident, I find it extremely important to have the ability to expand practice and improve one’s skills beyond the boundaries of the lab in the medical school or hospital. As such, I looked up the available simulators that are for sale.

I came across Inovus Medical and upon my first inquiry about the system, I was provided with extensive information about their different product.

Customer experience:

The sales respresentative was prompt in her replies and provided me with the needed details to make up my mind. The reps replies were always quick, direct and honest. The experience was that of a company that believes in its products and trusts in their functionality, while being humble and modest in advertising them. Honestly, it felt like purchasing a home-made custom-made product.

Placing the order, shipping and delivery:

Placing the order was extremely simple and straightforward, no issues or problems encountered. Within 24 hours, the product was shipped via DHL and I received updated tracking from the UK to the United States. The product was received a few days later as promised, complete and without delays or unexpected turns.

Inovus Pyxus:

Description: This product included the simulator box, a USB HD camera, various laparoscopic tools (Maryland graspers, Johan Graspers, Curved scissors and needle holders) and a bunch of tasks and practice models (I selected the OBGYN set). The included models and tasks are fascinating and very robust and rich.

Assembly and setup: Assembly was extremely simple and takes about 30 minutes or less. The instructions were clearcut and all objects clearly labeled. I don’t believe it required the use of any tools to complete the assembly.

Camera: the camera functions as a webcam. The resolution is impressive. The connection requires a computer and the platform to project the associated image is via Quicktime player for mac computers (or the main camera app for Windows). This is very simple and allows recording of one’s performance if desired.

Conclusion:

My experience ordering the Pyxus HD was nothing but exemplary. The sales representatives genuine investment in the product is clear and was at the heart of my ease and trust in investing in purchasing this product. The product itself along with its included items (e.g. graspers) are robust, sturdy and of professional quality. No doubt this simulator is a great advantage to own.”
