Real Practice with VetReaLifeSim on Live Animals…
...Before Live Animal Practice

Realistic "train the way you treat" opportunities with wearable VetReaLifeSim IV trainers help minimize human factor mishaps. 

The VetReaLifeSim IV/Blood draw task-trainer is the first IV trainer of its kind to integrate realistic simulated skin and blood vessels with aerospace industry technology to safely practice your hands-on IV skills and human-animal interaction skills on live animals or animal simulators. 

VetReaLifeSim IV trainer is a unique device in the veterinary market that will allow the flexibility needed for learners to improve their skills and confidence before using those skills in actual patients.

Benefit #2: Competence
Learners and patients benefit from repeated safe practice to help prevent dangerous complications and prepare providers with competence and confidence to provide good emergency care in potentially dangerous places.

Benefit #3: Confidence
Learners have more opportunities to self and peer assess as they work together practicing provider-patient interactions and positioning, promoting active involvement in their learning process.

VetReaLifeSim Advanced Version with App

Objective Measurable Outcomes - VetReaLifeSim with App - Real-time Objective & Subjective Skills Performance Record

Available for ReaLifeSim and VetReaLifeSim* (*by request), ReaLifeSim App (RLSimApp), was designed to help the learner and instructor “see” what’s going on beneath the skin with insertion attempts. We created and embedded sensors to identify IV catheter or needle insertions that go beyond the depth of the vessels, which is a patient safety concern. Using the RLSimApp, the learner can review a report of their hands-on skills performance, plus audio recordings of their provider-patient interactions on their mobile devices.


Learners must identify an instructor or facilitator to provide access to the same information. Using the facilitator web portal, instructors can sort reports by name or date for review, share feedback, and track and trend progress.

Self-Assessment, Peer Assessment, and Instructor Assessment with 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.

We created VetReaLifeSim to offer you the high quality, affordable options you deserve: wearable IV trainers that provide opportunities ‘to train the way you treat’.
