Combined Efforts Add to Realism in Healthcare Simulation Education
B & G Educational Innovations, LLC, (BGEI), parent company of ReaLifeSim, LLC, announced today - a collaboration to produce a new product with Amoveo Training, Inc., a Canadian firm with national healthcare simulation training expertise, based in Medicine Hat, Alberta.
“We’ve got you…. under our skin.”
Well, more precisely ReaLifeSim’s got a new sub-dermal layer add-on!
The first product of this joint effort, released today, is a simulated sub-dermal (skin) layer, which can be inserted into the wearable ReaLifeSim IV simulator, adding another level of realism for those developing and maintaining skills to successfully start an IV.
“We’re pleased to be working with Amoveo. We share the same perspective on the growing importance of simulation and immersive training scenarios to raise the level of learner competence and confidence, improving patient care and safety,” explained Elizabeth Benson, co-founder and CEO of BGEI and its ReaLifeSim. “ReaLifeSim & VetReaLifeSim IV trainers provide high physical fidelity and versatility to teach proper hand positioning, IV catheter manipulation, provider-patient interaction, and situational awareness in a variety of environments.” Benson added.
“ReaLifeSim's focus to replicate real life in clinical training using wearable products works well with our commitment to help organizations use simulation and immersion to enhance quality improvement and safety,” said Matthew Jubelius, Amoveo’s founder. “We’re happy to be working with ReaLifeSim to add another layer. Realistic training helps medical and veterinary professionals provide the highest standards of patient care”, added Jubelius.
The two companies are working together to develop realistic products for improved learner experiences.
Amoveo’s expertise in designing customized simulation solutions complements ReaLifeSim's commitment to improve patient outcomes by enhancing the skills training available to students and existing care providers. This new addition is available directly from Amoveo Training, Inc.
