The GI Mentor Express is an elegant portable platform offering the most advanced
hands-on training in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. This high end virtual reality trainer
offers over 60 tasks and virtual patient cases for endoscopy skill enhancement,
colonoscopy, gastroscopy, sigmoidoscopy and gastric bleeding. Just as in the full sized GI
Mentor, training on this portable solution is done utilizing an actual scope, realistic
tactile sensation and true to life anatomy, physiology and pathologies. All of the
mentioned features, together with performance metrics validated in more than 40 studies
[http://simbionix.com/simulators/clinical-validations/gi-mentor ], contribute to preparing
the trainee for performing actual cases on live patients. The GI Mentor Express is offered
in several configurations for enhanced flexible pricing. Simbionix will unveil the new GI
Express at the DDW in San Diego, CA, May 20-22, booth #3025.

The newly enhanced URO Mentor being launched this week by the company was designed to
enable future simulation content on the same platform. Currently the system combines
training for both endourology and percutaneous access procedures. The unique cost
effective design utilizes the latest technology, and is ready to be upgraded with female
urologic anatomy, for future modules and training procedures. The new system will be
unveiled at the upcoming AUA in Atlanta, GA, May 19-22, at booth #2761.

Ran Bronstein, Simbionix President and COO, commented that “Simbionix continues to
enhance existing products and develop new products in order to provide the best value for
our clients. Work on a specific trainer is on-going even after the simulator is released,
as we keep on developing new modules and working on the existing configurations and
platforms to improve the products and keep them updated with the latest technologies.”
