‘Next Gen Geri’ Geriatric Simulator From Simulaids Gets National Media Attention | IMSH 2017 Interview
HealthySimulation.com interviewed Simulaids at IMSH 2017 and learned about the national firestorm that was their Next Gen Geri! A Simulaids employee had left Geri in a car and returned from a quick trip into a store to see the local authorities had smashed his window to get Geri out of the car — not realizing she wasn’t a geriatric patient simulator! Yes — the realism is that good! Check out of video below to see Geri up close:
There aren’t too many details available yet about Geri, but HealthySim has been told by Simulaids reps that they will be releasing details on order, delivery, pricing and features in June for INACSL and AWHONN. The Next Gen Geri mark the new direction that NASCO Healthcare with their flagship brands of Simulaids and Lifeform are going, with the objective to deliver not only new trainers but a new form factor allowing for a new dimension in simulation and training medical and emergency service staff. .
