ReaLifeSim Wearable Simulation Products

ReaLifeSim products are worn by real people to encourage better interpersonal communication or as an "add-on" to manikins for enhanced function and extended sustainability. Our product lines include task-trainers and simulated blood vessels (SBVs).

IV TASK TRAINERS

ReaLifeSim IV Task-trainers are wearable, affordable, durable, and safe. They are available in three sizes (adult, pediatric, infant) 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! RLSimApp screen translations in French, German and Spanish will be available early 2018.

Features

  • Life-life skin with feel of "pop" through the skin and the second "pop" through the vessel followed by a realistic flashback.
  • Loop and hook velcro straps for flexible fitting and positioning on the forearm. Velcro straps are used rather than a full sleeve to protect the wearers from potential exposures and cross-contamination.
  • Entire base of sleeve covered with protective puncture-proof material.
  • Soft, smooth, durable microfiber lining near the skin.
  • Objective & subjective performance feedback quickly and easily accessible with the RLsimApp.
  • Required with App only - 2 AA batteries provide >200 hours of feedback and skills tracking (*2 AA batteries are not included.)

SIMULATED BLOOD VESSELS 

Simulated blood vessels (SBVs) are available in different lengths and diameters to provide a variety of placement and practice opportunities. The SBVs are currently available in three sizes (long, standard, and narrow) with flow-through vessels in field testing January/February 2018. SBVs are leak-resistant and if they are pre-filled, we use a standard non-hazardous re-hydrated simulated blood product. Sustainability varies based on size of vessels and needle placement and gauge of needles inserted. A simulated blood specimen is delivered (via flashback) only when the catheter is correctly inserted and the tourniquet is properly tightened over the proximal end of the vessel. Since the vessels may not be the full length of the sleeve, extra attention to proper tourniquet placement is important. Viewing a flashback for a correct needle insertion is not App dependent.
