Echo Healthcare Showcases Unique Healthcare Educational Tools at #IMSH2020
This weekend in San Diego at the 2020 International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare, Florida-based Echo Healthcare is showcasing key innovative products and services in the medical simulation space. From hyper realistic human patient simulators and simulated patient face masks, to cutting edge immersive room technologies, patient monitor simulators and most unique of all, a powerful technical support service program to extend the life your manikins and clinical simulation technologies. Let’s take a closer look at what’s in store for us this week at IMSH!
MeLiSA: Mater Level Service Agreement
MeLiSA demystifies medical simulators hardware and software with on call technical support plans to eliminate downtime and maximize operational functionality for greatest simulation program ROI. Healthcare Simulation programs without full time simulation technician support (or even those with support but face dramatic growth bottlenecks) can activate ongoing technical support assistance from Echo Healthcare with MeLiSA to stabilize annual capital equipment maintenance costs. Reduce headaches and increase utilization with MeLiSA!
Jeff Dawes, Clinical Simulation Learning Centre Manager from the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Calgary shares that “We have been utilizing MeLiSA for several months now on all 42 of our simulators and the service has exceeded my expectations. The MeLiSA service delivers tech support in a very timely, knowledgable, and professional way. They really are a great team to worth with, my staff are noticeably less stressed, and the faculty are happier because their simulation experiences are running more smoothly. I save costs, increase service and get to a higher strategic business ROI!”
EchoMask Simulator Realism Covers
Want to quickly change your generic looking human patient simulator face to something more relative to your medical simulation scenario learning objectives? Check out the face masks, abtly named “EchoMasks” which can fit over most manikin heads. EchoMask is designed to enhance the fidelity of your simulators and standardized patients by providing a dramatic increase to the level of realism and diversity to the learners experience.
The product includes front and back chest plates, medical grade silicones, latex free materials, easy care maintenance and a variety of ages and ethnicities including:
- African Senior Male
- African Middle Age Male
- African Bariatric Middle Age Man
- Asian Senior Male
- Asian Senior Female
- Caucasian Senior Male
- Caucasian Senior Female
- Caucasian Middle Age Male
- Caucasian Middle Age Female
- Caucasian Bariatric Middle Age Male
- Hispanic Middle Age Male
LifeCast Simulation Manikins
Introducing a step change in realism for the medical training industry, Lifecast Body Simulation has developed a range of highly accurate and lifelike medical manikins which are transforming the way that medical simulation and education are delivered and absorbed. Designed and produced at the world renowned Elstree Film Studios in London, every manikin demonstrates incredible realism and the very highest quality. With an ever evolving range, please explore our pre-term and newborn babies, children and adults both young and old – all available with a wide range of ethnicity options. Simulators cover key demographics including:
- Pre-term & Full Term Babies
- Toddler / Children
- Adult (Male & Female)
- Geriatric Adults
- Special Projects
Lifecast Body Simulation Adults are highly accurate and lifelike, designed and manufactured in the UK. Based on the lifecasts and scans of real people, Lifecast Adults feature lifelike details including replication of veins and underlying structures, hair and precise anatomical mouths and airways enabling ALS airway management. Available in a wide range of ethnicities and created with usable weight and average adult heights, Lifecast Adults encourage more natural handling, bringing a new level of realism to medical training and demonstrate our belief in building simulation training tools that create emotional attachment and engagement.
Exciting to note is that Echo Healthcare recently became a manufacturing partner for UK-based Lifecast Body Simulation, providing more powerful opportunities to learn and train with these realistic learning tools throughout the United States!
Also Shown at the Echo Healthcare Exhibit Stand
- Immersive Interactive Virtual Wall Projected Environments that are fully interactive and multi-sensory. A cutting-edge learning tool that engages through sight, sound, smell, and touch, in addition to providing unique collaboration opportunities.
- iSimulate Patient Monitor technologies which provide a modular clinical simulation ecosystem incorporating a patient monitor simulator, CPR feedback and video in a single solution.
