Press release date: October 4, 2012

CLEVELAND,  -- Simbionix USA Corporation, a world leader of medical simulation training and education products, will introduce the new advanced U/S Mentor(TM) simulator [ ]. This new Simbionix simulator offers realistic hands-on training for diverse ultrasound examinations and interventions, and will be shown for the first time at the upcoming American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Exhibition in Denver, Colorado.

Ultrasound is the second most-widely used diagnostic imaging modality after X-Ray. The last decade has seen a significant shift from "provider performed" ultrasound, done by trained sonographers in the radiology (imaging), obstetrics, and cardiology departments, to "point of care" (POC), "bedside" ultrasound procedures performed by various specialists as part of their patient care. This trend is driven by the advent of more compact, higher quality, and less expensive ultrasound equipment, practicality, efficiency and demand.

Today ultrasound has medical applications for every area of the body and provides accurate results regarding overall structural composition, considered the "stethoscope of the 21st century". 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 Simbionix U/S Mentor features highly realistic simulation within a comprehensive educational environment. The simulator is comprised of a palpable mannequin and true to life simulated anatomies, physiology and pathologies, with skill tasks and structured step-by-step procedural guidance available alongside virtual patient cases.

The first training package is designed to develop basic ultrasonographic psychomotor skills and advanced hands on training for Bedside Echocardiography. A variety of hands-on tasks and cases accompanied by comprehensive didactics enhance procedural and clinical understanding. The unique module incorporates ECG, image enhancement tools, measurement tools, color doppler, cine-loops recording and clinical findings reporting, all supporting training to the full extent of the actual procedure.

Ran Bronstein, Simbionix President COO, remarked: "The new simulator joins the line of successful Simbionix medical education products already embraced by the medical community. Standing at the forefront of providing training solutions, Simbionix is once again one step ahead of the market, keeping up with the evolving needs of the field to provide physicians with the most effective and safe training solutions."

Stop by Simbionix booth #627 at ACEP, October 8-11, in Denver, CO, to be one of the firsts to experience the ground breaking U/S Mentor.
