About Simulab – TraumaMan Surgical Simulators & More
Simulab Corporation is a medical simulation company that specialized in soft tissue task trainers, mostly in surgical simulation. The Seattle-based company’s most notable product is a surgery simulator called TraumaMan, which was first developed in 2001 for use in Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) training programs, but is now used worldwide.
Simulab focuses on creating realistic human anatomy with easy to setup and teardown training tools. The company works closely with leading medical educators to develop their vast array of healthcare simulation task trainers. Through realistic medical simulators, Simulab is able to immerse learners into simulated experiences.
TraumaMan is a flexible training platform for teaching six different procedures, including Cricothyroidotomy and Chest Tube Insertion. Since its release, TraumaMan has also become widely used in military courses, EMS training, and other trauma surgery simulations. More than 35,000 clinicians in almost 40 countries use TraumaMan each year to train on advanced surgical skills.
The TraumaMan medical trainer is for Chest Tube Insertion, Cricothyroidotomy, Needle Decompression; Pneumothorax, Tracheostomy, Pericardiocentesis, Diagnostic Peritoneal Lavage or Diagnostic Peritoneal Aspiration (DPA), IV Cutdown and more.
