Gynecologists Get First Hands-On Experience With Simbionix LAP Mentor(TM)

GYN Surgeons had Their First Opportunity Last Week to Experience the World's Most Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery Simulator at the 36th AAGL

Global Congress

CLEVELAND, Ohio, November 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Simbionix unveiled the latest module of its highly successful LAP Mentor(TM) simulator line to members of the Global Congress of Minimally Invasive Gynecology.

The LAP Mentor(TM) multidisciplinary laparoscopic simulator is the first and only simulation system to provide training in complete advanced procedures. The system enables training and practice in essential surgical and suturing skills on a single, integrated platform. During the AAGL congress, Simbionix presented its newest module that offers hands-on training experience on two fundamental GYN procedures: ectopic pregnancy and tubal sterilization.

"Simbionix invests heavily in bringing surgeons the most advanced laparoscopic simulation possible," explains Niv Fisher, Simbionix VP of R&D. "The technological challenges met by Simbionix' R&D group are both vast and unique". The module uses Simbionix's new proprietary technology, Free Form Simulation Platform (FFSP). FFSP analyses the physical connections between organs to provide an accurate simulation of subtle tissue responses experienced by laparoscopic gynecologists.

"FFSP is another first-of-its-kind technological coup for Simbionix" says Simbionix President, Ran Bronstein. "Open surgery simulation has finally made the leap from science fiction to fact".

Simbionix is continuously innovating and increasing its product offering. Its wide range of training modules, case studies and scenarios has been developed in response to the expanding demand for advanced clinical training and education. Already a world leader in the field of simulation-based medical education and training, Simbionix's plans for 2008 include more industry leading training solutions for advanced medical procedures
