The ForceSense system has been developed to become the world’s first laparoscopic training system to evaluate tissue handling skills. The medical device developments of the Super Seton and Sensitive grasper have sprouted from the MediShield ‘incubator’ in the daughter companies Super Seton B.V. and Tulipa Medical Technologies B.V. respectively.
