CAE Healthcare Announces Exclusive Distributor Agreement for Strategic Operations Cut Suit
This month CAE Healthcare announced the exclusive distribution of the Strategic Operations Cut Suit. Congratulations to everyone involved with this new partnership which will allow first responders and physicians to practice performing surgical and emergency procedures on patients with simulated traumatic, life-threatening injuries. With international reach and a massive sales team, CAE Healthcare will help to ensure the Cut Suit gains the demonstration presence it deserves in front of front line responders.
Press Release Excerpt:
Based in San Diego, USA, STOPS simulates medical response field scenarios through the “magic of Hollywood,” with hyper-realistic training environments that include special effects, role players and simulated wounds. STOPS has developed a line of medical products that can be worn by actors or Standardized Patients (SPs) to allow real-time interaction with a trauma patient. The Surgical Cut Suit and Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC)/EMS Cut Suit vest can also be zipped around a manikin to add realism to a scenario.
“Strategic Operations has created a spectacular line of simulation products that complement our portfolio and can be used in conjunction with Standardized Patients and our patient simulators to add versatility to trauma training scenarios,” said Dr. Robert Amyot, President of CAE Healthcare. “Like CAE Healthcare, Strategic Operations has employed subject matter and clinical experts to create training tools for emergency medical scenarios that are common but impossible to practice on live patients with the shared goal of saving more lives.”
“We are pleased to be part of the CAE Healthcare extensive portfolio of training solutions,” STOPS Executive Vice President Kit Lavell said. “Our products are very complementary and I believe the market will respond enthusiastically to this new synergy.” The TCCC/EMS Cut Suit was developed for treating the three primary causes of death on the battlefield: hemorrhage, airway compromise and tension pneumothorax. The Surgical Cut Suit allows practice on a patient with severe internal bleeding or organ damage from point-of-injury through transport and surgical intervention.
