The NEW UpSurgeOn Box Suite


A new revolution in training has arrived thanks to the new mobile NAVIGATION!

The new UpSurgeOn Box Suite offers a lot of new features:

  • Neuronavigation from smartphones, accessible anywhere
  • More detail thanks to 100 micron capillaries
  • New design and improved aesthetics
  • New scenarios available

Scientific accuracy

You need this level of detail

Brainbox is the result of a novel process called Scientific 3D Modeling.

An example? Here is what you can explore in a PterionalBox:

II: Optic Nerve
ICA: Internal Carotid Artery
ACA: Anterior Cerebral Artery
A1: First segment of ACA
AComA: Anterior Communicating Artery
MCA: Middle Cerebral Artery
III: Oculomotor Nerve
PComA:Posterior Communicating Artery
PCA: Posterior Cerebral Artery
Ophtalmic Artery
Pituitary Stalk
Perforating Arteries
Lamina Terminalis
Heubner Artery (origin)
Optic Chiasm
Basilar Tip

What is BrainBox?

Neurosurgical simulator for hybrid training: both virtual and physical

  • BrainBox is a hyperrealistic simulator of neurosurgical approaches and intracranial scenarios

  • It has been conceived to be fused with an augmented reality app to improve the simulation experience

  • BrainBox is modular: you can change the internal scenario to switch from one approach to another


UpSurgeOn Psychomotor Skill Training

AcademyLab is the first cadaver-less psychomotor skill training course based on our technologies.

We are launching the first studies to prove how a weekly, low-cost simulation-based program could speed up the learning curve and improve the surgical skills of neurosurgery residents.

Do you want to organize a course with our cadaver-less technologies?

UpSurgeOn Technologies for your hands-on courses

Manual Training: BrainBox

BrainBox is the most hyperrealistic simulator designed for psychomotor skill augmentation. Neurosurgery residents from all over the world are already practicing on this tool to perform neuroanatomy exploration, craniotomies and aneurysms clipping.

Pterional Box: brain box for pteronial approach

The most life-like training experience

No cadavers: practice everywhere!

BrainBox is manufactured with innovative materials able to mimic human neuroanatomy in any detail, from the cranium to the deep neuroanatomy.
An example? Capillaries down to 0.1mm in diameter on a soft, realistic optic nerve. This is what you need.

Cognitive Design

Knowledge + Beauty = Magic

A simulator should put function over form, but why stop there? Brainbox is modular and intuitively functional in order to make learning more efficient that ever before. In addition to the high-quality educational experience, BrainBox is designed to look as cutting-edge as it feels.
The result? A work of art on your desk.

Hybrid Experience in your hands

Amplify your Brainbox with AR

For the first time simulation becomes hybrid: use your smartphone to amplify the educational experience through Augmented Reality.
Complete and animate your physical scenario with AR Box, a free module included in Neurosurgery app.

Customer Reviews

  • The concept and the quality of the BrainBox is amazing! With AR technology, it’s much more awesome. This will be a greatly helpful for the residents and even fellows to prepare for certain cases in preop and also helpful when reviewing the case as postop. It’s a lot more accurate and delicate than I expected. Truly recommend trying it!

    David Park – Neurosurgeon – NY, USA

  • The PterionalBox is a new excellent, comparatively inexpensive training tool to train new generations of both neurosurgeons and medical students to further visualize surgical anatomy from different perspectives and how to work in a surgical corridor.

    Felix Corr – Medical Student – Mainz, Germany

  • Simply amazing!! BrainBox has changed the way I learn neurosurgery. The extreme accuracy of anatomical details and the possibility of practicing when and where I want before surgery, make it an essential daily tool during my residency in neurosurgery.

    Simona Serioli – Resident in Neurosurgery – Brescia, Italy

  • I really appreciate the BrainBox models that mimic the features of the brain tissue in any aspects. We can focus on performing the craniotomy with real instruments, exposing the dura mater, the brain tissue and exploring all the structures and their anatomical relationship. It allows residents to train on a daily-basis to improve their mental and manual skills.

Psychomotor skill training

What can I do with BrainBox?

  • HYBRID TRAINING: virtually traverse the skin and subcutaneous tissues to the skull

    1. Learn correct patient positioning by moving the BrainBox in VR
    2. Learn the approaches of a specific cranial region using the AR animations projected on BrainBox
  • MANUAL TRAINING: physically explore from the bone to deep neuroanatomical structures

    1. Perform a full craniotomy and open the dura
    2. Manipulate parenchyma and nerves
    3. Simulate a microscope using the special lens
    4. Suture the dura and close the skull
