ReaLifeSim & VetReaLifeSim in Education Settings
Clinician created wearable products for safe healthcare and veterinary skills training accessible to any person, any time, any where!
We are passionately committed to improving patient outcomes by improving the skills training available to new and existing care providers. We all go into healthcare to help, and we certainly want to do our best...so with improved competence and more confidence, everyone wins.
Our safe, affordable, wearable IV task-trainers enhance the realism of clinical skills practice, providing smarter, more efficient experiences to train the way you treat. They are worn by real people to add the human factor, real animals to encourage provider-patient communication, and can be used as an "add-on" to manikins for enhanced function and extended sustainability. Our product lines include task-trainers and simulated blood vessels (SBVs). All of our products are made in the USA.
- Task-trainers are available in seven sizes (adult, pediatric, infant, large animal neck, medium animal neck, medium animal leg, small animal leg) and two versions (basic and advanced with the companion RLSimApp).
- The RLSimApp is the first and only one of its kind, bringing IoT into the medical field along with expert developed technology, for secure access to track/record individual learner hands-on and communication skills performance, with cloud syncing and remote instructor access for review/assessment and feedback! French, German and Spanish RLSimApp screen translations – available early 2018.
- The SBVs are currently available in three sizes (long, standard, and narrow) with flow-through vessels in field testing January/February 2018.
ReaLifeSim in Telemedicine & Developing Countries
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 start an IV. And, like telemedicine, ReaLifeSim advanced version provides the opportunity to work with expert guidance from a professional in a different location.
In developing countries, an additional approach to provide care is being adopted from lessons learned in the International Space Station - task-shifting. Task-shifting requires people, training and cooperation between all levels of the health system. Task-shifting has dramatically expanded human resources in areas with a chronic shortage of health-care workers. 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.
The Bible says that if you give a man a fish, he will eat today, but teach a man to fish and he will eat forever. Our ReaLifeSim products provide a means to inexpensively and comprehensively teach and assess healthcare skills to improve health and wellness worldwide during our lifetime and for future generations.
