Simbionix Launches Portable LAP Simulator at the European Association for Endoscopic Surgery Meeting

CLEVELAND, OH and LOD, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - July 16, 2007) - Participants at the European Association for Endoscopic Surgery Meeting in Athens, Greece were treated to the first public test-drive of Simbionix's newest laparoscopic training system, the LAP Mentor Express™.

LAP Mentor Express offers all the advantages of its predecessor, LAP Mentor, including integrated training and practice for complete laparoscopic procedures, laparoscopic skills and performance metrics, but in a more cost-efficient and completely portable package.

This "personal trainer" for laparoscopic surgery comes complete with a wheeled carrying case for easy entry and use in clinics, small-scale courses, local meetings, etc.

Simbionix Marketing VP Inbal Mazor reports that participants in the EAES meeting 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."
