Sep. 21st 2009, Cleveland, OH, USA: Simbionix USA Corporation, the world’s leading developer of medical simulation systems, just released two new products: a new Laparoscopic Essential Tasks Module for its LAP Mentor™ and a breakthrough technology for patient-specific simulation based on actual patient data – the PROcedure Rehearsal Studio™.
The new Laparoscopic Essential Tasks Module is an addition to the LAP Mentor’s ever-expanding library of modules. This new module takes hands-on skill training another step forward, enabling the trainee to practice three essential tasks, similar to the Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery Program (FLS) developed by SAGES.
“The module is a breakthrough technology that provides an efficient and exciting virtual reality environment”, explains Simbionix President Ran Bronstein.
During the same week, Simbionix released a new, enhanced version of the PROcedure Rehearsal Studio™ marking another important advance in its innovative simulation technology.
This unique product, previously introduced by Simbionix last year, is the world’s first medical simulator to enable clinicians to create practice scenarios based on their patient’s unique anatomy as reconstructed from CT data.
Inbal Mazor, Simbionix Vice President of Corporate Marketing, adds:” This week’s release of the PROcedure Rehearsal Studio with the PACS-enabled capability allows for a wide range of scans and enables the sharing of training cases for educational use. With this new version, the system is now more efficient, easier to use and extremely reliable. “We are extremely proud of this new product which will undoubtedly benefit both patient and clinicians”.
Simbionix will present these new releases at upcoming US medical tradeshows this fall: The PROcedure Rehearsal Studio on September 23rd at TCT 2009 in San Francisco, and the new Laparoscopic Essential Tasks on Oct 12th at the ACS 2009 annual meeting.
