SurgTrac is now FLS compatible

World-leading instrument tracking software meets well established web-based education in minimally invasive surgery

10years ago, the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) launched a web-based education module designed to teach the technical skills, physiology and fundamental knowledge of laparoscopic surgery. The Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery (FLS) provides surgical residents, fellows and practicing physicians with a tool to develop their cognitive, decision-making and technical skills in the context of laparoscopic surgery. Now it is considered to be a valuable supplement to minimally invasive surgery curricula around the globe. 

Here at eoSurgical we have been working tirelessly to ensure that our world-leading objective performance tracking software – SurgTrac -  suits the needs of all our customers. Using our software you can now perform FLS tasks in any compatible simulator whilst also reaping the benefits of a cloud based portfolio, a range of objective performance metrics and natural language feedback. 

Preparing to perform FLS tasks

When performing FLS tasks, SurgTrac will automatically adjust the tracking algorithm to track your performance.

Use any FLS model

Once your SurgTrac trackable stickers are in place on your instruments, you are ready to perform any FLS tasks of your choice! SurgTrac then records the task in your online portfolio along with objective performance metrics and natural language feedback.

The FLS compatibility add-on is available NOW
