SIMETRI is excited to be attending and exhibiting at this year’s International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH), a scientific conference that explores the latest innovations and best practices in healthcare simulation. The conference, which takes place January 18-22 in San Diego, California, provides the tools and resources healthcare professionals need to advance their skills, impact change in delivery systems and practice, and, ultimately, to improve patient safety.
“We value the opportunity to share the work we’re doing with the U.S. Army and the difference our training solutions are making for the warfighter,” said Carlos Cuevas, SIMETRI’s business development manager. “This conference also allows us to see others’ work and possible ways we can collaborate to create new solutions or improve upon existing ones.”
Partnering with the U.S. Army Futures Command, SIMETRI will be exhibiting the gender retrofit kit, the fasciotomy part task trainer, and moulage.
SIMETRI has developed the gender retrofit kit to integrate with existing human patient simulators. The gender retrofit kit facilitates using an existing human patient simulator, originally configured as a male, to simulate a female patient, therefore extending the training capability of an existing asset to better prepare the trainees to care for female patients.
Traumatic medical situations require a provider to sometimes expose and examine a female patient’s body. The gender retrofit kit addresses the element of hesitation on the part of the provider that could compromise the injured patient’s life.
SIMETRI was recently awarded a contract by the Army Futures Command to revise the breast design for movement and realism while still targeting maximum durability. This was in response to testing by the Army Medical Department (AMEDD), which also indicated these design changes could result in a much-needed training capability.
SIMETRI will also be demonstrating their lower extremity fasciotomy part task trainer, developed in partnership with the Army Futures Command. A fasciotomy is performed to treat compartment syndrome, an extremely dangerous condition caused by swelling in the extremities. The research, design and testing continue to improve the solution, including recent integration with the advanced modular manikin (AMM), a program managed by the Joint Project Manager Medical Modeling and Simulation (JPM MMS).
SIMETRI is exhibiting both the stand-alone trainer and recent updates which include the design updates facilitating attachment to the Rescue Randy and Laerdal manikins, two of the most commonly used human patient simulators used by the U.S. Army, other U.S. forces, and first responders.
Finally, SIMETRI has moulage and trauma tattoos used for training that will also be highlighted in the exhibit.
