The ORSIM bronchoscopy simulator is designed to encourage deliberate regular practice of bronchoscopy skills. The following features allow rapid and easy use:

  • User friendly interface
  • Small and lightweight (2kg/ 4.4lbs)
  • Laptop compatible
  • Easily stored in a drawer
  • Easily transported in a briefcase
  • Rapid start-up
  • Robust construction

The ORSIM system consists of three main parts: a replica video bronchoscope, a desktop sensor and a dedicated laptop with software program.

The replica video bronchoscope is connected to the small desktop sensor. The sensor registers movement of the insertion tube and translates this to a three-dimensional virtual airway displayed through the software on the laptop screen. The user can progress through a range of upper and lower airway scenarios receiving instant feedback as well as scoring metrics, recording and play-back.

The ORSIM bronchoscopy simulator provides comprehensive training for a common diagnostic procedure, which until now has required lengthy specialist training. Based on its size, simplicity and economy, it is suitable for large training organizations as well as individual practices.
