Date:11/7/2013

CLEVELAND, November 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Pelvic examinations are routinely performed for testing and evaluating various medical conditions including screening for cervical cancer and sexually transmitted diseases. Learning the female anatomy and how to conduct pelvic exams have posed a challenge due to the nature of the exam. Simbionix USA Corporation, the world's leading provider of medical simulation, training and education products, is excited to introduce an advanced training tool for clinicians enabling hands-on practice for pelvic exams on a life-like computerized mannequin.

The Simbionix PELVIC Mentor™ simulator was designed to allow OB/GYNs, family doctors, medical students, nurses and other clinicians, the ability to obtain detailed hands-on knowledge of pelvic anatomy and to acquire the comprehensive skills required to perform pelvic exams. The integrated hybrid system combines a physical mannequin with a computerized 3D virtual system. A net of sensors translate the palpation, abdominal press and cervix manipulation into a real-time virtual reality visual image. The realistic mannequin provides learners and educators with the ability to identify anatomy, conduct an exam and receive feedback.  The unique system provides a stress free learning environment, and increases the comfort level for both clinicians and patients.  

The Pelvic Exam module includes 6 interchangeable anatomies, each representing a different medical condition. Trainees have the opportunity to identify various pathologies before they encounter diverse health conditions in live patients.

"Conducting a pelvic examination can be especially challenging for new clinicians, as it requires both sensitivity and skill", said Inbal Mazor, Simbionix VP of Global Marketing. "Simbionix chose to use its expertise in advanced simulation of surgical procedures to develop a simulator for this essential exam. We believe this comprehensive product meets the needs of both patients and learners, who we expect will benefit from the reduced learning curve and the realistic hands-on training opportunity it offers.  

Stop by Simbionix booth #345 at the upcoming AAGL Exhibit in Washington, D.C., November 10-14, to experience our training solutions for women's health including the LAP Mentor™ for the training of laparoscopic skills and tasks, suturing, fundamental GYN procedures and hysterectomy; PELVIC Mentor™ for pelvic exams and anatomical recognition; and the VirtaMed HystSim™ for practicing hysteroscopic procedures.

Simbionix USA Corporation is the world's leading provider of simulation, training and education products for medical professionals and the healthcare industry.
