A colonoscopy is a very important and regularly conducted procedure that requires practice to develop technical skill. This device is a synthetic silicone colon that simulates a human GI tract and allows for realistic simulation of endoscopic procedures. The model realistically recreates human anatomy so trainees and physicians can practice difficult cope maneuvers and endoscopic procedures. The model also allows for more advanced practice, such as the process of identifying and removing polyps.
Functional Prototype has been created and is currently being used by CCF students and staff.
