RoSS Lite II

The most portable and compact training system for robotic surgery

RoSS Lite II

Utilizing the same physician designed curriculum of the advanced RoSS system, RoSS Lite II brings effective, high-quality training that is affordable to even the most limited budgets.

The RoSS Lite II solution comes neatly packed and protected in a military grade protective case that can be carted around like your carry-on luggage.

The RoSS Lite II simulator addresses the rapidly growing need for a realistic training environment for robot-assisted surgery:

  • Offers 16 surgical simulation training modules with progressive difficulty
  • Develops motor and cognitive skills for performing robot-assisted surgery
  • Provides in-vivo virtual operative steps with three levels of complexity
  • Stores performance metrics for all users in a comprehensive database for export to Excel

Validated Curriculum

Virtual Reality Based Training Modules

The RoSS Lite II solution offers 16 modules with progressive difficulty from pinching, camera and clutch operation to tissue cutting and cautery

  • Knowledge of use of controls: camera, clutch, pinch
  • Coordinated Tool Tasks: learn to use and coordinate various tools
  • Basic Motor Skills: precision control of tools
  • Surgical Skills: tissue cutting, needle handling, suturing, electrocautery
  • Procedure Skills and Knowledge: skill to complete procedures
Module one
orientation Skills
Instrument Control This task teaches the trainee how to move the arms and helps orient the user to the feel of the RoSS™ console.
Camera Control This task teaches the trainee how to use the camera.
Coordinated Tool Control This task teaches the trainee how to use the camera and the clutch together in a coordinated manner.
4th Arm Control This task teaches the trainee how to use the 4th arm.
Module Two
Motor skills
Ball Drop This task helps the trainee develop precise control of their instruments by picking up balls and placing them on trays.
Ball Placement This task helps the trainee develop accurate and precise control of their instruments by picking up balls and placing them atop columns
Spatial Control I In this task, the trainee must pass a ring along a curved wire to hone their spatial awareness, instrument control, and fine motor skills.
Spatial Control II In this task, the trainee must pass a thread through a series of rings to hone their spatial awareness, instrument control, and fine motor skills.
Module Three
basic surgical skills
Needle Handling and Exchange This task teaches the trainee how to handle a needle properly.
Needle Removal This task teaches the trainee how to properly hand off a needle to a bedside assistant.
Basic Electrocautery This task teaches the trainee how to use the electrocautery hook.
Tissue Cutting This task teaches the trainee how to use the scissors to cut tissue.
Module Four
Intermediate Surgical Skills
Tissue Retraction This task combines the trainee’s previously acquired skills and requires coordinated control of the 4th arm to retract tissue.
Blunt Tissue Dissection This task combines the trainee’s previously acquired skills and requires coordinated control of their instruments and the camera to separate two layers of tissue.
Vessel Dissection This task combines the trainee’s previously acquired skills and requires coordinated control of their instruments and the camera to dissect the vessel.
Knot Tying This task combines the trainee’s previously acquired skills and requires coordinated control of their instruments to effectively tie common surgical knots.

I am grateful and thrilled to inform that I have done my first robotic hysterectomy three days after my arrival from your training program. The Ross has been of great help in understanding the robotic principles.

Training with the RoSS is going well. The residents are actually using it without encouragement, which is unusual for a simulator.

The HoST system is nothing less than a game-changer in the world of surgical education. Why nobody thought of it before is hard to fathom in hindsight.

It’s amazing how similar it is to the da Vinci console!

The Ross simulator allows our residents to become proficient at the robotic console outside the OR. Residents are better able to focus on critical elements of the surgery when they are not attempting mastery of the console at the same time. Skills practice on the RoSS simulator has quickly become a key part of our surgery training.
