Angled Scope Views

Zero Degree Scope View

  • For a zero degree (0◦) view, place the smartphone on Part E so that the screen faces you and the camera points into the rectangular cutout.
  • The phone will rest against the top lip of Part B
  • Adjust the smartphone position and/or the training object in the box until the proper view is acquired
  • A zero degree view is used for assessment of the learners' performance
0 Degree Scope View

Thirty Degree Scope View

  • Having the capability to simulate an angled scope is a novel component of the laparoscopic box trainer. Learners can practice using this view in any module.
  • For a 30-degree (30◦) view, stretch the free rubber band hanging from the top of Part E around the smartphone in the vertical direction
  • Lower the smartphone into the rectangular cutout in Part E
  • Use the rubber bands attached to Part B to secure the smartphone
  • Adjust the smartphone position and/or the training object in the box until the proper view is acquired
