The VITO(pn 20150100457, 2015) is a novel training kit that has been designed to be portable, light, mobile, and non-expensive, adjusted to the clinical needs of both beginners and advanced surgeons allowing a continuous and systematic self-centered and/or collaborative training in Surgical Endoscopy. The VITO(pn 20150100457, 2015) assisted endoscopy training kit impact on the learning curve in terms of the ‘’machine learning curve’’ which refers to the training process and computation of the time point considered as that, that an endoscopic operation is learned in the training process of Endoscopic Hemostasis is initially evaluated.
