CLEVELAND, November 2, 2010 - Simbionix USA Corporation, the world's leading provider of medical
education and simulation technology, is pleased to announce they have signed
a collaboration agreement with the American Association for Bronchology and
Interventional Pulmonology (AABIP) on the development of a Bronchoscopic
Essential Skills module.

Simbionix new Bronchoscopy essential skills module is being developed in
conjunction with, and endorsed by the AABIP. The new module offers designated
skill tasks covering the spectrum of Bronchoscopic skills required. This
module is intended to provide the trainee with solid habits for safe and
efficient performance, and to enhance hand-eye coordination, 3D perception
and anatomical knowledge.

Gerard Silvestri, AABIP President, said that "The daily practice of
clinicians is highly affected by the progression of medical technologies, as
they are required to adapt to fast changes and developments. It is therefore
essential to develop new training programs that utilize the advanced
technologies, such as virtual reality simulators, to assure that the
educational curriculum is entirely covered. We chose to work with simbionix
since we believe that only close collaboration between the medical community
and companies that provide cutting edge technologies are essential to
successfuly design these programs for the benefit of the physicians, the
patients and the entire medical field."

"We are very excited to have reached yet another collaboration agreement
with a leading medical society" commented Mr. Ran Bronstein, Simbionix
President. "All of our products are designed with the cooperation of the
medical community, who play an active role in simulation design, content
definition, and product testing and validation. Simbionix continuously
provides the procedural and technological know-how and actively joins forces
with the leading medical associations and the medical industry to optimize
training solutions and to advance clinical performance."
