One Platform for All Your Ultrasound Training Needs
Simbionix Ultrasound Mentor is the answer to the growing need for ultrasound training among multiple medical specialties. This modular simulation platform enables easy manikin rotation (male, female, pediatric and interventional), and offers diverse applications for a range of specialties such as OB/GYN, Point-of-care Ultrasound (POCUS) and Echocardiography.
Ultrasound Mentor accelerates the development of basic to advanced technical and cognitive skills, by providing not only the probe manipulation training, but also a didactic environment enabling structured, self-guided learning including step-by-step instructions and educational aids such as 3D anatomical map and probe positioning assistant, all backed up with our progress monitoring tool MentorLearn.

We developed a test for the assessment of clinical competences in basic thoracic ultrasound with solid validity evidence, and a pass/fail standard with no false positives or false negatives.
Simulation-based teaching of TEE showed a significant improvement in the knowledge, skills, and self-assessment of proficiency of cardiology fellows, as well as a reduction in the amount of time needed to complete the examination. These results should encourage further investigation of clinical performance and patient benefits of TEE simulation training.
