VIRTUAL CLASSROOM: Simulator for Urologists

Touch of Life Technologies (ToLTech) has developed a virtual reality-based cystoscopy simulator to train and evaluate urologists on the procedure of injecting Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) into the detrusor muscle of the bladder to treat leakage of urine (incontinence) in adults with overactive bladder due to neurologic condition. Candidates would include adults with conditions such as. multiple sclerosis (MS) or spinal cord injury (SCI) — who still have leakage or experience too many side effects after trying an anticholinergic medication.

The cystoscopy trainer is the latest in a series of anatomically detailed, high-end medical procedure simulators from ToLTech. The simulator was developed to support global health care company Allergan’s commitment to educate and train urologists on the proper technique for injecting Botox to treat incontinence in adults with overactive bladder due to neurologic condition as a second-line treatment when anticholinergic medications have failed or were intolerable. The simulator and injection procedures comply with the instructions for use outlined in the product label approved by the FDA for this Botox indication.
