CAE Healthcare Launches LucinaAR – Augmented Reality Maternal/Fetal Simulator for IMSH 2018
With IMSH 2018 starting this Sunday at the Downtown Los Angeles Expo Center we are already starting to see some massive product announcements from industry leaders like CAE Healthcare. Last year you may remember CAE released their VimedixAR system, allowing for an Augmented Reality cutdown for ultrasound training. Now, the company has doubled down on AR technologies to provide for real-time 3D anatomical training for the discipline of OB. Also at the event is a special workshop on AR/VR entitled “Early Learnings and Successes About The Use of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality in Healthcare Education” with the details shared below!
Lucina is the only wireless childbirth simulator with validated, integrated maternal-fetal physiology and interchangeable static cervices to train on all the stages of delivery and the rare emergency scenario. Lucina brings an impressive blend of features to the market including a more realistic and controllable birthing process, better articulation for labor and delivery maneuvers, and predicted APGAR scores based on the integrated maternal-fetal physiology. From normal delivery and breech birth to shoulder dystocia and eclampsia, Lucina does It All. With 5 pre-configured Simulated Clinical Experiences (SCEs), Lucina allows instructors to increase throughput and manage multiple demands effortlessly.
CAE LucinaAR with Microsoft HoloLens is a breakthrough in healthcare simulation, the world’s first patient simulator with modeled physiology that is represented in stunning anatomical holograms. Learners gain a view inside the mother as the fetus descends the birthing canal, and they witness how their actions impact mother-baby safety. CAE’s integration of augmented reality into a simulator with responsive physiology delivers deeper understanding and an unprecedented shared training experience.
More About Lucina, CAE’s Maternal Fetal OB Simulator
Two Adult Female Patients, One Simulator: Lucina is a hybrid solution for both obstetrical patient management training and non-gravid, female patient care education. Tuck the simulated fetus into the delivery abdomen and Lucina is ready for OB rounds
Beauty Meets Functionality: Realistic palpable uterine contractions, a reliable birthing mechanism supporting automatic descent, and crowning and rotation of the fetus provide true-to-life learning experiences
Advanced Programming For Life-Saving Skills Training: Advanced CPR metrics measure the consistency of compressions and ventilations, as well as coronary and cerebral perfusion. Hand placement, chest recoil, and left lateral tilt are detected and logged by the Müse operating system.
Impressive Library of Scenarios: 10 pre-configured Simulated Clinical Experiences (SCE’s) that come ready to operate, from normal vaginal delivery to urgent and interventional birthing maneuvers (including Leopold’s Maneuver, Zavanelli Maneuver, Trendelenburg position, shoulder dystocia, vertex and breech delivery).
