MentorLearn, the company's web based Simulator Management System,
provides the optimal solution for managing training and education needs
for the Simbionix line of simulators. Being available on both the LAP
Mentor and the GI-BRONCH Mentor allows training centers the opportunity
to incorporate multi-disciplinary simulators into the residency
curriculum, and provide documentation of training for accreditation and
certification - which is the ideal solution for the ACGME requirement
for simulation based training.
The LAP Mentor Appendectomy Complete Procedure Module provides training
for the skills and knowledge of key components of the Appendectomy
procedure. The module enables practicing a variety of techniques and
appropriate use of surgical instruments. An anatomical 3D map,
real-life videos, interactive 3D guidance and comprehensive objective
performance metrics enrich and enhance the learning experience.
Simbionix has partnered with Intuitive Surgical® to develop the Simbionix Suturing Module for virtual reality simulation
of suturing on the Skills Simulator™ for the da Vinci®Si™ System.
This module is a continuation of Simbionix's effort to provide highly
realistic and effective tools designed for cost-effective integration
in surgical curricula across multiple disciplines and technologies.
The new LAP Mentor curriculum deployed on the MentorLearn application-
"Simbionix Suggested Implementation of the ACS/APDS Surgical Skills
Curriculum for Residents, Phase 2: Advanced Procedures", adheres to the
objectives outlined by ACS/APDS and their corresponding training
modules, incorporating Simbionix complete procedure simulation within
the modules where applicable, and premium video based educational
Gary Zamler, Simbionix CEO, commented: "I am proud to work in a company
that has maintained its mission as stated when established, to
continuously create partnerships and products to provide the most
advanced tools in the market. Our close collaboration with the surgical
community is one of our building blocks, assisting us in our ongoing
process of enhancing our simulators by adding training modules to both
our systems and to additional surgical solutions created by others,
and expanding learning opportunities and learning processes. Our goal
is to provide medical education programs and accrediting bodies with
flexible yet complete training tools."
