What can I do with the TNS Box
Improve your surgical skills in skull base endoscopy
Train on a daily bases your surgical dexterity. Get automatisms related to the use of microsurgical instruments such as the endoscope, dissector and tissue forceps. Through the use of this system you will be able to explore the nasal cavity, and to prepare it to reach a tumor located into the pituitary fossa. Then train your abilities to dissect and remove the tumor endoscopically.
How the TNS Box works
Your Box interacts with an app to give you a 360° training experience.
Download the “Neurosurgery” app, log in and open the “TNS” module to start your personal training programme:
Mental Training: in this section, divided into 5 chapters, you will learn, through the use of interactive 3D models, aspects of 3D imagination, automatism and strategy related with a TNS approach.
Hybrid Training: in this section you will be guided in transferring these notions from the virtual dimension to your TNS Box through the use of augmented reality: the app joins your physical simulator to give you the possibility to visualise and plan your intervention.
Manual Training: follow the tutorials to learn how to handle the tools included in your kit and how to move around during the exploration.

The TNS Box allows you a complete exploration of the nasal cavity, sphenoid sinus and pituitary fossa.
To expand your experience, we have created the TNS Disposable Cavity: this accessory gives you the possibility to dissect and drill your surgical field.
Once the procedure is over, replace the cavity and start again.
