SAGES-ACS Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery™ (FLS) announces new supplier for the FLS Trainer Box and Accessories.
The committee overseeing the FLS Program, a joint educational program of the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) and The American College of Surgeons (ACS) will be granting exclusive rights for the manufacture and sale of the FLS Training Simulator and associated accessories and supplies to Limbs & Things, Inc. (LTI), a medical training simulation firm.
LTI will supply updated versions of the FLS Trainer Box that are designed to suit the individual needs of the training center and trainee. All new task accessories and supplies will be comparable to current FLS products being used and compatible with existing FLS systems. While the new products will feature an updated look and refinements, the basic parameters affecting the skills training and performance will remain. FLS products from LTI will be available in the near future at www.fls-products.com.
“We are excited about partnering with Limbs & Things Inc.” said Steven D. Schwaitzberg, MD FACS, chairman of the SAGES FLS Committee, “which will offer an updated look, flexible options and excellent value to purchasers.”
