Are you looking to add "Real Life" realism
to your training experiences?

Now YOU can provide more realistic opportunities
to safely experience the influence of human factors with
ReaLifeSim & VetReaLifeSim.

Help reduce preventable medical errors and minimize human factor mishaps by improving the realism in clinical skills practice.

Wearable ReaLifeSim & VetReaLifeSim IV trainers & blood draw trainers provide high-quality, smart, and efficient experiences for learners to "train the way you treat."

Realism in IV training for every level:

  • fundamental,

  • advanced (geriatric, pediatric),

  • emergency.

Realism in IV training for every environment:

  • classroom and lab,

  • hospital and clinic,

  • parking lots, fields, and farms,

  • close-spaces and austere environments.

Quick & Easy Set-up - 
Routinely 5 minutes or less, from storage bag to ready for IV catheter insertions.

Develop and test IV start skills under pressure while working with a live person! Simulated skin provides a realistic feel and "pop" with catheter/needle insertion. Simulated vessels feel like they're rolling and "pop" at cannulation. Artificial blood in a flashback with proper vessel cannulation.
The closer we can get the students to a ‘real call’, the better we can transition them from students to practitioners. ReaLifeSim IV trainer added another level of realism to our scenarios. This tool really helps achieve that goal.

ReaLifeSim & VetReaLifeSim patented product design is lean and high functioning without being over-engineered.

ReaLifeSim provides a high level of physical fidelity, while providing the opportunity to relate to a “patient” on a human level - exactly what’s needed for developing health care professions learners.

This is great! Our devices are so bulky…not really practical to put on an SP. The arms and manikins we use don’t really simulate an actual patient, so ReaLifeSim is fantastic!

High Physical/Biologic Fidelity in anatomy, interaction, and technology

  • REALISTIC: Haptic feedback: palpate rolling vessels, feel skin and vessel “pop”, auditory feedback: tone with deep IV catheter insertion, and visual feedback with flashback.

  • DURABLE: Maintains integrity for 250+ insertions.

  • ADAPTABLE: Available in adult, child, and infant sizes for human training PLUS four animal sizes fit jugular and cephalic. Can also be used on manikins and other simulation trainers to extend the life of your existing devices.

  • PORTABLE: Can be used in any setting: classrooms, laboratories, emergency vehicles, field scenarios, drills, austere environments, etc. Durable cloth cinch bag included.

  • VERSATILE: Multiple vessel size and placement options.

  • SAFE: Impenetrable metal backing prevents actual contact with wearer. Velcro straps maintain infection control.

  • AFFORDABLE: Price comparable to most clinical textbooks.


ReaLifeSim App (RLSimApp) 
Learner Centered Measurable Outcomes

Used in Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE), Competency-based Training (CBT), and Competency-based Assessments (CBA)

  • MEASURABLE AND TRACKED OUTCOMES: Embedded sensors track each IV catheter insertion that goes beyond depth of vessel.

  • RECORDED FEEDBACK: App records real-time audio for individual and team communication skills development.

  • Cloud syncing and secure remote instructor access for review, assessment, and feedback.

  • English, French, German and Spanish RLSimApp screen and facilitator portal language localization is standard.


Add more realism to training and scenarios by emphasizing communication and interaction skills.


High quality simulation can be substituted for up to 50 percent of traditional clinical experiences. 

ReaLifeSim & VetReaLifeSim IV trainers are worn by real people to add the human factor and real animals to encourage team and provider-patient communication.

They can also be used as an "add-on" to manikins and simulators for enhanced function and extended sustainability. 

Compare us to any of these: a simple practice block; a bulky, complex hydraulic sleeve; and part and full body simulators. You'll see we're the perfect fit for realism, function and price.


Highly functional. Surprisingly affordable!


ReaLifeSim IV Trainers in Telemedicine & Developing Countries

As someone who’s tested ReaLifeSim IV trainers, I can tell you first hand that they work wonderfully.
— Waseem Ghannam, MD, MBA, MHSA, CEO & Co-founder Tele-Health Solution

Telemedicine assistance from a distance is a great option to have. 
Higher acuity patients remain closer to their homes and support systems, where local healthcare professionals are expected to provide care under the guidance of the telemedicine team. Our ReaLifeSim Team focuses on the essential element of direct person-to-person healthcare delivery in those remote and rural areas. ReaLifeSim provides safe and affordable opportunities to practice clinical hands-on skills to draw blood and learn to start an IV. And, like telemedicine, providers have the opportunity to practice IV competency with expert guidance from a professional in a different location.


There is an ancient proverb that says that if you give a man a fish, he will eat today, but teach a man to fish and he will eat forever.  People in remote clinics and villages can practice clinical hands-on skills to draw blood and start an IV over 200 times, sharing one wearable ReaLifeSim standard adult IV trainer. Our ReaLifeSim IV trainers provide a means to inexpensively and comprehensively teach and assess clinical skills to improve health and wellness worldwide during our lifetime and for future generations.
