Echo Healthcare and TraumaSim Announce New Global Partnership
Echo Healthcare continues to invest in highly realistic simulation training products and solutions to assist educators to provide the most realistic education and training environment for their learners. Research studies continue to prove the importance of realism within medical simulation scenarios and training exercises directly impacting learner engagement and retention. And while the use of simulation in healthcare education continues to grow, so does the desire for faculty and instructors to ensure that the quality of training their learners receive makes them exceedingly prepared to treat actual patients in all clinical environments. This HealthySimulation.com article discussed an exclusive partnership between Echo Healthcare and TraumaSim to provide high-quality, realistic products for healthcare simulation.
Echo Healthcare Partnership with TraumaSim
Echo Healthcare recently announced an exclusive partnership with TraumaSim to expand the product offering to include a robust line of realistic moulage, wounds, task trainers, trauma wear, and hands-on simulation products. The addition of TraumaSim’s highly realistic products enhances Echo Healthcare’s position at the forefront of medical education and increases the ability to drive their overall mission “to improve patient outcomes and save lives through innovation, education, and technology.” This exclusive partnership allows Echo Healthcare to manufacture and support TraumaSim products within their state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Sarasota, Florida, and exclusively resell within North American and South American markets.
TraumaSim has been a global leader in providing medically accurate and realistic wounds, injuries, and medical conditions that assist in the training and assessment of medics, first responders, and healthcare professionals since 2008. TraumaSim designed and manufactured the world’s first Emergency Tourniquet Trainer for the Australian Army and Israel Defense Force, and it remains the gold standard worldwide for military and civilian first aid training. The TraumaWear line consists of bruises, burns, eviscerations, wounds, lacerations, and fractures and can be worn by human/standardized patients or applied to simulated manikins for enhanced realism. Another product is the popular Hemostatic Clotting Trainers, with instructor-controlled bleeding, that allow learners to practice wound packing and dressings on a realistic trainer in a safe environment.
Consistent with Echo Healthcare’s existing products they manufacture, each TraumaSim product is created with latex-free, non-toxic, medical-grade silicone that is medically accurate and looks and feels real. Each trainer is designed to give a clinically accurate response to encourage proper placement, pressure, and technique, just as they would in treating a real patient. The silicone wounds, moulage, and TraumaWear are all designed for quick and easy application and clean-up with no staining from any products. This allows faculty and simulation team members the ability to enhance the realism of their simulation scenarios and standardized patient encounters using wounds and moulage without there being an extensive amount of preparation and clean-up time.
TraumaSim also believes in the shared importance of diversity and offers a wide array of products, genders, and 11 different skin tone options with the ability to create custom skin tones. The synergies between Echo Healthcare and TraumaSim’s manufacturing quality and exceptional customer support allow this partnership to be monumental for both the civilian and military markets in North and South America. Echo Healthcare continues to meet the need for more realistic simulation training products and solutions globally and across all specialties.
