Laerdal’s SimMom Receives Non-Gravid Abdominal Skin Product Update
Laerdal is now proud to be able to offer the SimMom Flat Abdominal skin as their newest product enhancement for SimMom. With the new non-gravid flat abdominal skin, SimMom is not only an obstetrical simulator but can be used as an advanced female patient simulator to address women’s health issues and assessment skills during training. These improvements increase the overall flexibility of the Sim Mom simulator.
What are the latest enhancements to SimMom?
- Ultrasound Solution for SimMom: An optional Ultrasound Solution has been embedded to gravid and flat abdomen skins to help improve point-of-care diagnostics training, and visually determine the health of the fetus and mother, during the progression of birth.
- Automatic Delivery Module: An optional Automatic Delivery Module has been added to the existing birthing and post-partum module range.
- Wireless Connectivity: An instructor can freely walk around the room whilst they assess and control a training session using a wireless connection from their operator PC and the SimMom Link Box.
- Non-Gravid Abdominal Skin: SimMom can now be fitted with a non-gravid abdominal skin to expand the scope of your simulation training. Early stage pregnancy cases can now be simulated as well as expanding the use of SimMom into a non-pregnant female patient simulator
This system is now available as an upgrade or additional add-on.
