At IMSH, 3D Systems demonstrates MentorLearn Online on Mobile Devices in Booth #625

For the first time, 3D Systems will be demonstrating the MentorLearn Cloud-Based Simulation Management System on mobile devices such as mobile phones and personal tablets. MentorLearn provides online access to the Simbionix simulators, and allows to perform administrative tasks with ease of use. A library of ready-to use courses and MentorLearn’s simple interface to design courses makes it easy to create a standardized training curriculum, including flexibility to add educational content and proficiency benchmarks.

This online system takes performance data from all simulation training and saves it to one database, providing a single access point to all the data from the simulator training. Finally, by looking at the performance reports, the program director can see, at a glance, how residents are doing.  MentorLearn is accessible, easy-to-use and has the end-to-end solution needed by simulation users and administrators.

“Modern evidence based training programmes in technical simulation include a period of self-directed training sessions on the simulator before attempting to pass the relevant test and acquiring certification. The MentorLearn Platform is a great help for the course administrator in this respect. It is possible to follow the individual trainee from your home computer, assign cases to train and post study material, keep track of how the trainee does and how much time she spends on the simulator.

The different 3D simulators in our unit may all be found in our MentorLearn access, and it is thus possible to see what other courses the trainee has worked on. A very well thought out and useful administration tool.” Karen Lindorff-LarsenHead of department M.d., Asst. Prof. NordSim Center for Skills Training and Simulation Aalborg University Hospital.

3D Printing

As the world progresses towards personalized medicine and treatment, 3D Systems has re-imagined the future of medicine.  3D Systems provides the most advanced and comprehensive 3D design-to-manufacturing capabilities.

Patient-specific models can be printed from segmentation files that are created by the PROcedure Rehearsal Studio software. Clients can upload their patient’s clinical data on Simbionix software and smoothly plan and print a physical model that will help improve clinical outcomes and increase patient safety.

Printed models are beneficial for:

  1. Medical training programs- to allow better understanding of the anatomy, skills attainment and practice on true-to-life organs
  2. Medical device companies- to provide a solid platform for device bench testing
  3. Physicians planning an upcoming procedure- to enable repetitive practice on patient specific anatomy without putting the patient at risk

3D Systems solutions are used to rapidly design and print devices and assemblies, facilitate communication and planning, and create prototypes to empower customers to manufacture the future.

New RCSA Certification Curriculum Uses ANGIO Mentor Simulators For Advanced Training

Margate, Florida;   RCSA™, in collaboration with Simbionix™, provides medical solutions for certification requirements.  Learners include cardiovascular medical specialists, vascular medical specialists, cardiovascular assistants, medical simulation educators and others.

The Registry of Cardiovascular Specialists and Assistants (RCSA™) is a public, non-profit company that developed a challenging certification curriculum for cardiovascular professionals.  Coursework incorporates a demanding training process that facilitates clinical and technical excellence in cognitive, procedural abilities and the development of critical, psycho-motor skills.

After completing their formal educational training, many medical professionals require additional specialized training to perform complex cardiovascular medical procedures.

Mr. Charles Williams, RCSA’s founder, said, “The cath lab is a fast-paced environment that requires attention to detail, quick assessment skills, and critical situational thought processes.   Unfortunately, it doesn’t provide the ideal learning environment.” As a result, medical professionals often question if they are making the right decisions for a patient.  RCSA was created to address this situation.

Colleges and universities throughout the United States now use simulators to ensure that their graduating students receive the best motor-skill experiences and advanced academic training.  RCSA will now utilize the Simbionix ANGIO Mentor simulator to provide senior cath lab specialists with needed skills and procedural knowledge.  This multidisciplinary surgical simulator provides a realistic hands-on practice of endovascular procedures typically performed under fluoroscopy in the cath lab, interventional suite or an OR.

The course was developed by the RCSA and is the first of its kind that defines cardiovascular simulation training and certification processes to which we will and must adhere. In addition to the basic program, the RCSA team completed the advanced requirements for accreditation as medical instructors and evaluators, as well as the Standards of Training and Practice of Certified Cardiovascular Medical Simulation Trainers (CTAE).

The continuing education accreditation process has been provided by the CaPCE, ASRT and the California Board of Registered Nurses, which are recognized by RCSA’s worldwide cardiovascular professional counterparts.  As a result, RCSA Simulation Certification Program attendees develop a professionally recognized skill set that is second-to-none in the field of cardiovascular medicine.
