SPECIAL

Laparoscopyboxx - Pediatric and Single Port

The Laparoscopyboxx Pediatric and Single Port  was inspired by my passion for pediatric surgery. Pediatric surgery is a subtle form of surgery: it requires extra skills to be able to operate in a small space between especially vulnerable tissues. That’s why it’s so important to train. The Laparoscopyboxx Pediatric is one of the few – if not the only – pediatric box trainers on the market. This box differs from the normal version in two ways: it has two extra rubber ports that are situated close to each other and extra short legs so that the training is close to the camera. The normal-sized legs are also included.

Single port? Yes! Situated directly under the camera are two holes (without rubber): by inserting your instruments through here, you can experience the feel of a single port.

Exchange and return

Service comes first, so we strive to resolve all problems as colleagues. Return/refund is not a problem as long as it is within 30 days of receipt of your order.

Is the Laparoscopyboxx validated?

Not yet. Although we are currently working on this, I am personally of the opinion that we should stop with the validation of training material and begin with the actual practice of training itself. Would you like to collaborate on a study with me to validate a cardboard box? Then contact me!

Isn't virtual reality a better training method?

The development of virtual reality trainers has increased enormously in recent years. And yet, it’s still difficult to simulate tactile feedback  in a realistic way.  Moreover, the feel of the tissue and the behavior of a simple suture is nowhere near what it should be. Box training is, therefore, still the best training method.

About me

That would be me, Guus Bökkerink. In the first year of my surgical residency, I quickly developed a huge interest for laparoscopy.  Because I wanted to improve my skills in this area, I went out in search of a box trainer. Unfortunately, they were unaffordable. Price tags of a thousand euro were more the norm than the exception – so, I decided to build one myself. After trialing many designs (some of which failed, but that happens), I finally came up with the Laparoscopyboxx. A simple but qualitatively good box trainer that’s not only incredibly affordable but also very practical to use.

Do you have questions, suggestions or other comments? Then email me at: info@laparoscopyboxx.com. Or you can call me: (+31) 6 19532738.
