CLEVELAND, June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Simbionix USA Corporation, a world leader of medical simulation training and products, will be exhibiting its new U/S Mentor™ Simulator for the first time in Europe at the upcoming SESAM (Society in Europe for Simulation Applied to Medicine) exhibition, in Paris, France.
Ultrasound is widely used in medicine, as it is possible to perform both diagnosis and therapeutic procedures using ultrasound to guide interventional procedures. It is increasingly being used in trauma and first aid cases, with emergency ultrasound becoming a staple of most EMT response teams. Physicians and other healthcare professionals who provide direct patient care are using ultrasound in their office and hospital practices for efficient, low-cost, dynamic diagnostic imaging that facilitates treatment planning while avoiding any ionizing radiation exposure.
In correspondence with the rapidly growing utilization of ultrasound technology by various medical specialties, the Simbionix U/S Mentor provides a unique training opportunity, allowing healthcare professionals and clinical practitioners to independently acquire sonography skills in their field of practice. The innovative platform is comprised of a palpable mannequin and true-to-life simulated anatomies, physiology and pathologies, offering a selection of tasks and virtual patient cases for comprehensive training, incorporating didactics, real time guidance and captured metrics for objective assessment. Training modules incorporate ECG, image enhancement tools, measurements tools, color Doppler, cine-loops recording and clinical findings reporting, all supporting training to the full extent of the actual procedure.
"Developing the U/S Mentor follows the Simbionix mission to provide healthcare professionals with the most advanced training solutions," said Gary Zamler, Simbionix CEO. "This new simulator is the first in our line that is not intended only for MIS procedures, and addresses the current market needs and requests from our customers. The new U/S Mentor has been extremely well received in the United States, as clients were especially impressed with the realistic imaging and training options that it offers."
Stop by Simbionix booth #15 B+C at SESAM, June 13-15, in Paris, France, to experience the ground breaking U/S Mentor as well as our complete line of MIS simulators.
