Simulab Joins Katrina Relief With TraumaMan® Donation

SEATTLE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 1, 2006 -- Simulab Corporation, a world leader in surgical simulation technology, has donated a TraumaMan® System to Louisiana State University's School of Medicine and two TraumaMan Systems to Tulane University's School of Medicine in relief of Hurricane Katrina valued at $75,000.

"At Simulab, providing solutions to the medical community is one of our top priorities," said Christopher Toly, CEO of Simulab. "Through these donations of TraumaMan, we hope to support LSU's and Tulane's School of Medicine in their recovery from Hurricane Katrina."

LSU's Medical school was nearly destroyed by the hurricane and their World Class Simulation Center that they just completed was 5 feet under water. The entire medical school has temporarily relocated to Baton Rouge.

Tulane's School of Medicine was the most damaged of all their buildings due largely to the effects of the flood on the generators and electrical circuits. The entire medical school was temporarily relocated out of the state.

As the residency program and clinical experience is being rebuilt and reopened at both these Universities, Simulab applauds the courageous efforts of all those involved in rebuilding their much-needed programs.
