Inside dV-Trainer®

The benefits of stand-alone simulation


Mimic has collaborated with Intuitive Surgical® since 2003. Building off of this partnership, the dV-Trainer delivers a feature-packed solution for robotic surgery training that fits on a desktop.

Unmatched quality and efficiency for da Vinci® simulation training

  • Promote overall efficiency with customized training when and where desired, while ensuring that the OR robot is used for procedures
  • Empower residents, fellows and novice robotic surgeons to accelerate learning and increase confidence
  • Enable experienced surgeons to stay current on robotic techniques, and develop new skills (especially for those with lower case volume)
  • Encourage surgeon adoption of the da Vinci system, with the potential to improve efficiency and decrease procedure times
  • Mitigate surgical risk by deploying extensively validated simulation rather than training on humans or animals

Compact and ergonomic hardware platform

  • Tabletop-sized system minimizes space requirements and maximizes mobility and access
  • Dual-platform capability simulates both S and Si robots, including precise modeling of robot kinematics, foot pedals and master grips
  • Realistic representation of da Vinci workspace, EndoWrist® instruments, foot pedals, and master controls
  • Ergonomic hardware option with height-adjustable table, touch screen, casters, and monitor and keyboard tray

Comprehensive service plan

  • One-year limited warranty and first year service plan included
  • Regular software updates, including new exercises, content, and feature updates to administrative tools and MScore™; previews of new technology and modules
