Our team has been working hard to bring our low cost surgical skills trainers to the newly formed simulation center in Mulago Hospital in Kampala, Uganda.
Medjules are a suite of modular trainers intended to objectively asses skills such as knot-tying, suturing, and tool articulation. Each new skill comes in the form of a modular top to be attached to the universal base.
Like a 3D game of "Operation" meets "Simon Says", the tool articulation task tracks speed and accuracy while transferring metal rings from one S-shaped post to the next. This Medjule records the frequency and duration of error each time a ring touches a post.
Medjules are being developed for use within the University of Minnesota curriculum. For more information on Medjules, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
