U.S. Army Selects METI to Supply 41 New Simulators for Its Medical Simulation Training Centers (MSTC) Program

SARASOTA, FL--(Marketwire - September 29, 2009) - METI, the worldwide leader in medical simulation and educational software, today announced that it was awarded a contract from the U.S. Army's Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI) to update 13 of its Medical Simulation Training Centers (MSTCs) with a total of 41 new Emergency Care Simulators (ECS).

The $1.8 million contract is part of PEO STRI's MSTC Program to refresh the technology and resources at its installations as demand for simulation-based medical training and education in the military continues to increase. Currently, the MSTC Program has 17 simulation centers worldwide.

The contract will equip current simulation centers with METI's high-performance, blood-on-board ECS, which comes with a vast array of airway, pulmonary and cardiovascular systems as well as trauma features and METI's Combat Medical Advanced Simulation Training (CMAST) Learning Module.

"METI is dedicated to creating technological and educational innovations and excellence for every aspect of health care -- both military and civilian," said Lou Oberndorf, chairman and CEO of METI. "We are honored that the U.S. Government continues to recognize METI's advanced technology and engineering in its ongoing efforts to develop best-practices in medical education for the military."

METI expects to deliver the new simulators to PEO STRI by the end of 2009.
