Cleveland, OH: Simbionix USA Corporation, the world’s leading provider of medical simulation, training and education products, is proud to announce the release two new platform designs this week: the new GI Mentor™ Express simulator and the enhanced hardware for the URO Mentor™.
The GI Mentor Express is an elegant portable platform offering the most advanced hands-on training in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. This high end virtual reality trainer offers over 60 tasks and virtual patient cases for endoscopy skill enhancement, colonoscopy, gastroscopy, sigmoidoscopy and gastric bleeding. Just as in the full sized GI Mentor, training on this portable solution is done utilizing an actual scope, realistic tactile sensation and true to life anatomy, physiology and pathologies. All of the mentioned features, together with performance metrics validated in more than 40 studies, contribute to preparing the trainee for performing actual cases on live patients. The GI Mentor Express is offered in several configurations for enhanced flexible pricing. Simbionix will unveil the new GI Express at the DDW in San Diego, CA, May 20-22, booth #3025.
The newly enhanced URO Mentor being launched this week by the company was designed to enable future simulation content on the same platform. Currently the system combines training for both endourology and percutaneous access procedures. The unique cost effective design utilizes the latest technology, and is ready to be upgraded with female urologic anatomy, for future modules and training procedures. The new system will be unveiled at the upcoming AUA in Atlanta, GA, May 19-22, at booth #2761.
