Simbionix Launches Portable LAP Simulator at Surgeons Congress in New Orleans

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - October 17, 2007) - Last week, Simbionix unveiled the newest member of its extraordinarily successful LAP Mentor simulator line to members of the American College of Surgeons in New Orleans, LA, the compact LAP Mentor Express™.

The LAP Mentor Express runs the same robust, realistic software as the larger LAP Mentor II, offering integrated training on complete laparoscopic procedures, practice of basic skills and validated performance metrics, all in a sleek cost-efficient, and completely portable package. To support the continuing value of the platform, Simbionix will continue its rapid release of new, advanced procedural software for the LAP simulators to meet market demands.

This "personal trainer" for laparoscopic surgery comes complete with a high-performance laptop and all necessary surgical tools, contained in a wheeled case for easy entry and use in clinics, small-scale courses, local meetings, etc.

Dror Paz, Director of US Sales for Simbionix, reported that participants in the ACS Congress received the new system with great enthusiasm. "We expect that the LAP Mentor Express will open the door to more medical centers, training programs and clinicians that have been waiting to enjoy the benefits of a top-quality laparoscopy simulator with training modules that accommodate budgetary constraints."
