Simbionix New ANGIO Mentor™ Suite Promotes Endovascular Team Training in a True-to-Life Clinical Environment
CLEVELAND, Ohio, November 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Simbionix USA Corporation, the world's leading provider of medical education and simulation training is pleased to announce the release of its next generation simulator platform for endovascular training, the ANGIO Mentor™ Suite.
The ANGIO Mentor family of products provides clinicians with various platforms on which to practice endovascular skills and full procedures on realistic fluoroscopic images using the same tools used in real procedures. In addition to the technical skills, clinicians can benefit even more from hands-on training when it is provided in a true to life clinical environment, in a setting that facilitates team training.
To address this need Simbionix designed the ANGIO Mentor Suite. Training is done on a realistic human patient mannequin that allows introduction of endovascular devices through the actual access site required for the procedure, such as Femoral, Radial, Pedal and Subclavian, as in real life. Additional features help create an ergonomic and realistic cath lab / interventional suite environment, including a height-adjustable patient table, a large monitor for Fluoro, Echo and hemodynamic display, as well as a large selection of devices and drugs. As the physical attributes of the system are very close to an actual patient, team training becomes more realistic, allowing practicing communication among the clinicians in the drive to improve patient safety and reduce medical errors.
The ANGIO Mentor Suite is fully backwards compatible and enables operation of the entire Simbionix ANGIO Mentor / PROcedure Rehearsal Studio library of modules (18 ANGIO Mentor endovascular modules to date).
"We purchased three ANGIO Mentor Suite systems for our simulation center at Nancy University-Hospital", said Nguyen TRAN, Nancy School of Surgery COO. "This project is supported by the French Ministry through a program called 'IDEFI = Excellent Initiative in Pedagogy'. These simulators are constantly being used in training sessions, and we are pleased with the simulation experience they provide. The haptic is very realistic and the ergonomic setup makes the system an ideal platform for team training. In my opinion this is the ideal tool for educating and training the physicians and the clinical staff."
Stop by Simbionix booth #110 at VEITH/AIM, November 19-22, in New York, to experience the ground breaking ANGIO Mentor™ Suite.
