The validated LAP Mentor has become the laparoscopic simulator of choice by many physicians and renowned training centers worldwide. Simbionix is now releasing a new platform for laparoscopic training - LAP Mentor III. As the number of training modules available on the LAP Mentor has greatly increased, providing trainees with hours of true-to-life practice of laparoscopic tasks and procedures, much thought and planning were invested into creating an ergonomic solution for maximum efficiency. The cutting-edge sleekly designed platform includes a work deck with adjustable height, large monitor placed in an optimal position, a touch screen control panel and superior haptic feedback.

Learning the female anatomy and how to conduct pelvic exams have posed a challenge due to the nature of the exam. Simbionix designed the PELVIC Mentor™ to allow OB/GYNs, family doctors, medical students, nurses and other clinicians, the ability to obtain detailed hands-on knowledge of pelvic anatomy and to acquire the comprehensive skills required to perform pelvic exams. The integrated hybrid system combines a physical mannequin with a computerized 3D virtual system. A net of sensors translate the palpation into a real-time virtual reality visual image. The unique system provides a stress-free learning environment, and increases the comfort level for both clinicians and patients.

Simbionix will also present its new team training solution for endovascular procedures, the ANGIO Mentor™ Suite. Training is performed on a realistic human patient mannequin in a true to life clinical environment. In addition to practicing technical skills, clinicians can benefit from hands-on training in a setting that facilitates team training. As the physical attributes of the system are very close to an actual patient, team training becomes more realistic, allowing practicing communication among the clinicians in the drive to improve patient safety and reduce medical errors.

In correspondence with the rapidly growing utilization of ultrasound technology by various medical specialties, the U/S Mentor provides a comprehensive training environment on an innovative platform comprised of a palpable mannequin and a true-to-life ultrasound simulated image.

Ran Bronstein, Simbionix President and Co-founder, noted, "Simbionix continues to invest in new products for the benefit of our clients. Our development rate is one of the most intensive in the field of medical training products and also in comparison with hi-tech and bio-tech companies in general. Being able to launch a number of new products at the same time shows our ongoing commitment to our customers' needs and growing market demands."

Stop by Simbionix booth #425 at IMSH in San Francisco, January 26- 29 for a hands-on experience of our innovations, alongside our existing comprehensive line of virtual reality medical training simulators.

Simbionix USA Corporation is the world's leading provider of simulation, training and education products for medical professionals and the healthcare industry.
