Cleveland, OH: After performing various hardware and software upgrades to the ARTHRO Mentor, Simbionix is now pleased to announce the addition of a comprehensive training curriculum designed for orthopedic and sports medicine programs.

ARTHRO Mentor is an advanced arthroscopic training simulator, which provides an unlimited resource of cases and tasks for hands-on arthroscopy training in a safe and controlled environment.

This Industry leading advanced simulator was recently upgraded to include MentorLearn™, Simbionix' web-based simulator curricula management system.

 ARTHRO Mentor with MentorLearn provides access from a remote location 24 hours-a-day 7 days-a-week.

Arthroscopic surgical techniques require a high level of skills which may take years of training using traditional methods.  The new comprehensive ARTHRO Mentor training curriculum now being introduced teaches the basics for various arthroscopic procedures and contains a set of online courses for the following procedures: Diagnostic knee arthroscopy, Microfractures, ACL reconstruction, Bankart repair and Rotator cuff repair.

 The courses all include step-by-step explanations accompanied by videos of live procedures performed by leading physicians.

After viewing didactic material, physicians may practice performing the procedures on the simulator.

The product's virtual reality capabilities combined with tactile feedback are designed to improve the ability to teach and train surgeons, while achieving clinical proficiency in the safest, most efficient manner possible.

"The premium content we added enhances the didactic value of the simulator", said Inbal Mazor, Simbionix VP of Global Marketing.

"We are working on additional content and courses for the benefit of our clients, and enriching the training offering of this advanced simulator.

On top of that, we are continuing our investment in the ARTHRO Mentor and are developing several new shoulder modules expected to be released later on this year."
