EVANSTON, Ill., Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Mentice, Inc. and MATC have forged a relationship that will allow the two entities to work on multiple and mutually beneficial projects to further advance the use of simulation in technical colleges and teaching institutions throughout North America.
Mentice's Procedicus VIST Simulator allows a student, fellow, resident, nurse, technician and/or attending physician to gain exposure to routine and sophisticated procedures. The user can perform simulated procedures on a mannequin-type simulator in the areas of interventional radiology, interventional cardiology and vascular surgery. The simulator provides a realistic and hands-on experience which requires assessments to be made and associated clinical decisions to be executed.
In addition, MATC will support Mentice in its quest to broaden the scope of its capabilities while broadening the market for medical simulation.
