IV Trainers - Wearable Hybrid Simulators
to Practice Realistic Vascular Access
ReaLifeSim IV Trainers
The 1st and only IV Trainers with embedded sensors to record, save, and store hands-on skills performance & interpersonal communication skills performance on the RLSimApp.
Help reduce preventable medical errors and minimize human factor mishaps by providing more realistic "train the way you treat" opportunities with ReaLifeSim wearable IV trainers.
Realism in IV training for every level - Fundamental, advanced (geriatric, pediatric), and extreme (emergency).
Realism in IV training for every environment - Classroom and lab, hospital and clinic, parking lots and fields, and close-space and austere environments. Quick & easy set-up is routinely 5 minutes or less from storage sack to arm, ready for your IV catheter insertions.
Real-time subjective and recorded objective feedback measures -
- Haptic feedback: Simulated skin provides a realistic feel and “pop” with catheter/needle insertion. Simulated vessels feel like they’re rolling and “pop” at cannulation.
- Visual feedback: Artificial blood in a flashback with proper vessel cannulation.
- Auditory feedback (with RLSimApp): A tone signals IV catheter insertion too deep causing potential injury.
- Recorded skills performance measures with RLSimApp include: Time and date stamped outcomes with embedded sensors tracking each IV catheter insertion that goes beyond depth of vessel. App real-time audio recordings for individual and team communication skills development, with cloud syncing and secure remote instructor access for review, assessment, and feedback.
Highly functional. Surprisingly affordable!
Add Human Interactions & Measurable Outcomes
with Wearable Hybrid Simulation Solutions
Direct Benefit #1:
Your students benefit from wearing ReaLifeSim IV trainers as they safely “treat” each other in any environment, from classroom to austere. They practice hands-on techniques and interpersonal communication, contributing to the most realistic clinical simulation possible.
Direct Benefit #2:
These hybrid simulation IV trainers encourage students to self and peer assess, promoting active involvement in their learning process.
Direct Benefit #3:
Students AND instructors/facilitators can review and evaluate real-time objective & subjective performance feedback with ReaLifeSim advanced version's App and embedded sensors to record hands-on and communication skills.
Direct Benefit #4:
ReaLifeSim also adds new life and enhanced function to your existing lab equipment when worn by high and low fidelity "human" manikins to further enhance their realism and sustainability.
Direct Benefit #5:
ReaLifeSim products are accessible to any person, any time, any where and, most cost less than the average clinical textbook!
"Customer Favorite" for High Quality Realism
ReaLifeSim IV trainers are routinely complimented for their effectiveness in replicating the ‘real world’ experiences in which skills are learned.
Multiple vessel placement options for the "anatomical" configuration you desire with realistic "rolling" vessels.
Adds the human factor with individual provider-patient and team interactions.
Realistic feel with the "pop" through the skin and "pop" through the vessels followed by a flashback.
Lifelike-feel simulated skin provides repeated opportunities to safely practice hands-on skills with a variety of IV Trainer sizes.
Pre-filled (and refillable), leak resistant simulated blood vessels offer easy setup/cleanup options with a variety of length and diameter sizes.
Flow-through vessel options for administration of IV meds, IV Fluid boluses, IV Fluid infusions and to practice blood extraction.
RLSimApp: Individual & Team Skills Recording
Self Assessment, Peer Assessment, and
Instructor Assessment with Feedback
ReaLifeSim advanced version with App and embedded sensors, records hands-on and communication skills to provide real-time objective & subjective performance feedback.
Used in Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE), Competency-based Training (CBT), and Competency-based Assessments (CBA). Tracking outcome measures contributes directly to sharing “best practice” methodologies.
The ReaLifeSim App (RLSimApp) provides:
- Secure access to track/record individual learner hands-on IV skills performance using embedded sensors.
- Secure access to track/record individual learner provider-patient communication skills performance.
- Secure access to track/record team interaction skills performance.
- Cloud syncing and secure remote instructor access for review, assessment, and feedback.
- English, French, German and Spanish RLSimApp screen and facilitator portal language localizations are standard features.
Available for download from Google Play and iTunes Apple stores. The App records your first 60 minutes for free. Then, unlimited recording is $1.99/month.
ReaLifeSim IV Trainers in Academia
Educational Benefit #1:
Learners in traditional classroom lab settings benefit from enhanced simulation scenarios, static skills and interpersonal communication practice, as well as individual recording and review of their skills performance.
Educational Benefit #2:
Online learners in hybrid labs benefit from the addition of realistic hands-on clinical skills practice integrated with skills performance recording and review with their facilitator.
Educational Benefit #3:
ReaLifeSim hybrid simulation products encourage students to self and peer assess, promoting active involvement in their learning process. Learners also benefit from the RLSimApp self-assessment option promoting student-directed learning, with facilitator assessment and feedback options to complete traditional instructional models.

ReaLifeSim IV Trainers in Telemedicine & Developing Countries
We're dedicated to improving the delivery of healthcare worldwide by going back to the beginning - high quality skills training accessible to any student, any time, any where. ReaLifeSim IV trainers provide the opportunity for people to realistically practice how to start an IV, while working with expert guidance from a professional that may be in a different physical/geographic location, similar to telemedicine.
Our ReaLifeSim Team focuses on the essential element of direct person-to-person healthcare delivery on the other side of the monitor. ReaLifeSim provides practice for clinical hands-on skills to start an IV and communication skills.
One wearable ReaLifeSim standard adult IV task-trainer can be shared among communities and villages to provide over 200 people the opportunity to practice clinical hands-on skills to draw blood and start an IV. Corresponding instructional tools include free user guides for product and RLSimApp, as well as support for users, facilitators, and for any tech questions.
