ROCK HILL, South Carolina, May 17, 2018 – Today, 3D Systems (NYSE: DDD) announced its new Simbionix ANGIO Tab Pro endovascular simulator. The ANGIO Tab Pro is a first-to-market solution designed for step-by-step training of endovascular interventions - including 30 modules from basic skills to advanced and complex endovascular procedures, and more than 250 patient scenarios. The lightweight construction renders the ANGIO Tab Pro to be an ultra-portable solution, making it ideal for use at conferences, as well as in the physician's clinic or home.
The ANGIO Tab Pro simulator is easy to set-up – requiring significantly less time than traditional simulator solutions. It runs complete procedures with full functionality, and enables physical device introduction as well as deployment using an authentic handle. The angiographic visualization of the anatomy and instrument activity combined with haptic feedback results in a simulator that realistically imitates the look and feel of actual endovascular interventions.
The ANGIO Tab Pro released early to medical device companies and is receiving very positive feedback. “We are using the ANGIO Tab Pro to practice TAVI,” said Nathalie Ganas, TAVI (Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation) European training manager, Boston Scientific International. “It is very easy to set-up and use. It’s great to have a simulator that is so easy to carry.”
The ANGIO Tab Pro is the latest addition to 3D Systems’ line of ANGIO Mentor endovascular simulators including ANGIO Mentor Suite and ANGIO Mentor Flex. With a comprehensive suite of modules and patient scenarios, the ANGIO Tab Pro is well-suited for learners of all levels across multiple specialties including: Interventional Cardiology, Interventional Radiology, Vascular Surgery, Cardiothoracic Surgery, Electrophysiology, Interventional Neuroradiology, Neuro Surgery and Trauma.
“We are excited to see the ANGIO Tab Pro join our full line of ANGIO Mentor simulator platforms,” said Ran Bronstein, vice president, chief research and operation officer, healthcare, 3DSystems. ”It was a challenge to have such advanced functionality in such a compact offering, but the need in the marketplace drove us to find innovative solutions that are simple, practical and affordable.”
Experience the ANGIO Tab Pro in booth M12 at EuroPCR, May 22–25 in Paris.
