Simedic Trauma is an Israeli start-up company founded by Tova and Boaz Cern in August 2016, with the goal of making realistic trauma training available to emergency medical and tactical personnel by providing accessible and affordable tools. A longtime EMS educator, an artist and volunteer EMT for over two decades, Tova saw a need for accessible high-fidelity simulation solutions specifically for professional emergency response teams in the pre-hospital setting. Knowing first-hand what the available options were and their limitations, she set out to develop new ways to provide caregivers with trauma effects that are extremely realistic, easy to use and quick to apply at any setting.
