New Comprehensive List of Healthcare Simulation Vendors Page

Medical Simulation vendors provide products and services to help clinical simulation programs improve learning, training and patient safety outcomes. recently updated its Complete List of Healthcare Simulation Vendors Page with the most up-to-date information on manufacturers and service providers of healthcare simulation technologies.

Sorted by category below is just some of the many healthcare simulation vendors which offer educational and training solutions to the rapidly growing simulated healthcare industry. (See the page linked above for the complete and most up-to-date listings). has provided a brief explanation of each category so that simulationists can better understand how vendors fit into the industry overall.

Patient Simulators: A patient simulator is any kind of clinical simulation manikin that mimics human anatomy or function (physiology) and that can be used to educate learners and train healthcare professionals. Patients simulators are most frequently used in healthcare simulation centers and come in a variety of models. These models can include those in the form of preterm infant patients to geriatric patients, but also include obstetric birthing simulators, surgical simulators, military simulators and more.

A/V Debriefing Systems: Medical Simulation A/V Recording Systems are specialized Learning Management Solutions  (LMS) used to display real-time clinical simulation activities to non-participating learners as well as to playback the recorded simulated learning experience for debriefing purposes. These unique learning management software systems are used for education and training purposes in healthcare simulation programs around the world. Such simulation-based education (SBE) debriefing systems are now regularly robust cloud-based platforms that enable educators to stream, record, debrief, and annotate educational learning activities for mobile in-situ professionals, classroom sim lab learners, and clinical research projects.

Digital Learning / Virtual Patients: Digital learning is a means for educators and learners to seek out educational experience virtually through digital representation, rather than on a human patient. Virtual patients are digital representations of human patients that allow learners to test their skills in a risk-free environment to increase patient safety. By working with virtual patients, learners can experience real clinical scenarios that encompass a variety of healthcare circumstances ranging from clinical cases to critical situations. This category includes ANY screen-based training tool, including apps, Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and other Mixed Reality (XR) tools:

Clinical Task Trainers: Task trainers are specialized clinical simulators for training specific clinical skills or for better understanding human anatomy. Skills trainers are designed to help learners practice a specific clinical skill. These clinical simulation products can help teach competency based and procedural skills such as airway management, NG tube placement, lumbar puncture, and IV procedures and more.

Consultant/Support Services: Consulting and support services are designed to help institutions, facilities and hospital systems ensure that they are best utilizing healthcare simulation methodologies and technologies which meet their short and long-term goals. This could include training faculty in debriefing, selecting the most appropriate training tools, designing simulation spaces, extended technical support and more. As starting a clinical simulation program can be especially challenging, considering the help of clinical simulation consultants can be extremely helpful for developing or expanding programs. As well, as there are a wide range of products and services available, determining exact clinical simulation needs may be challenging for those without prior experience.

Management Systems: Clinical simulation management systems help institutions and facilities employing clinical simulation products and services to keep track of how the healthcare simulations are serving their learners,  staff, or faculty.  Management system services can include services including simulation center design consulting, audiovisual design and vendor management, onsite or web-based training, custom training videos and documentation, data migration and population.

Surgical Simulators: High-fidelity surgery simulators exist for the specialty fields of laparoscopic surgery, neurosurgery, endoscopic surgery, trauma surgery, cardiac surgery and interventional surgery. These products can both educate new learners and help perfect mastery for working professionals by utilizing integrated learning curriculums, performance-based statistical reporting such as number or movements, and screen recording for faculty debriefing and assessment purposes.

    General Education: These companies provide education, insight, and resources into clinical simulation training and learning. This education can involve clinical simulation scenarios that relate to specific conditions or instruct an educator or learner on how to administer a particular treatment. As healthcare simulation evolves and expands into more learning and training environments, the need to educate others becomes even greater.
