RoSS is a portable, stand-alone Robotic Surgery Simulator that teaches novice surgeons the motor and cognitive skills required for operating the da Vinci surgical robot.
The RoSS uses virtual reality to introduce the user to the fundamentals of robot-assisted surgery. It boasts a multi-level curriculum, designed with various levels of difficulty, that takes the user through and teaches the required skills for effectively advancing robotic surgery abilities.
RoSS is the only robotic surgery simulator featuring full-length surgical procedures in 3D, otherwise known as HoST.
RoSS is portable, so novice surgeons are able to practice and train without using valuable OR space and time.
