Dara's project - Development of a laparoscopic surgical simulator for the teaching & practice of inguinal hernia repair 

This project was done in conjunction with University Hospital Limerick and involved the creation of a novel, realistic, inexpensive, and easily reproducible simulator for the teaching and practice of laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal inguinal hernia (TAPP) repair. A realistic simulator for TAPP inguinal hernia repair enhances surgeons' training experience before they enter the operating theatre. The simulator also acts as an anatomical teaching aid for the pelvic region.
