Earlier this year I had a chance to talk with TraumaFX about their incredible trauma trainer, which has amazing potential in military, EMS and fire rescue scenarios. Trauma F/X is apart of KGS, a Kforce, Inc. company. Check out our video interview below to get up close and personal with MATT!

“The TraumaFX Multiple Amputation Trauma Trainer (MATT) is a ruggedized, tetherless, remote controlled trauma trainer that delivers high-fidelity simulations of lower-body blast injuries commonly caused by Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and other explosive devices.

Jointly developed by KGS and the U.S. Army ARL-STTC, MATT employs state-of-the-art special effects materials and technologies to deliver incredibly realistic visual and tactile stimuli with lifelike response to treatment. Tourniquets must be applied with a realistic amount of force to control hemorrhaging and responders can use pressure on arterial pressure points to occlude bleeding.”
