Healthcare simulation relies on models, manikins and digital representations to simulate elements of professional care. Referred to as “digital twin,” dynamic digital representations of a product or service (like a mechanical ventilator) allow professionals to monitor progress, diagnose issues and test solutions remotely in a simulated way. By simulating real-life conditions, these digital models help [...]
SMOTS UK is an audiovisual healthcare simulation recording system with hardware and software that uses A/V recording systems and the vital sign readings to simulate medical procedures. The SMOTS UK system is manufactured by Scotia UK plc in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Founded in 2005, the company launched with a 24-bed installation at Oxford Brookes School of Health [...]
Running audiovisual (A/V) debriefing systems in healthcare simulation is no easy task! From designing rooms and identifying equipment needs to selecting consulting firms and hardware integrators, and from installation to testing, operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting — the margin for error is high all through the technical process. That being said, the benefits of overcoming these [...]
