Sim&Care combines reality with the learning of patient care and virtual training for gesture training. This unique simulator represents the anatomy of a patient and allows an immersion in augmented reality as well as a gesture feeling faithfully reproduced thanks to a strength feedback. A hybrid simulator offering students the opportunity to practice without risk to the patient while allowing the development of the human skills necessary for the success of this medical procedure, which is still too often feared.
Thanks to an augmented reality environment, practice the gesture as if you were there. Combining reality with patient management and virtual to perform the needle insertion procedure, this unique educational simulator allows students to gain confidence and dexterity!
Feel the sensations of a lumbar puncture thanks to a strength feedback interface. It adapts the sensations according to the area you are passing through. Thanks to a haptic arm users perceive differences in densities that are highly realistic.
Sim&Care offers a unique and highly realistic interactive simulation of a patient’s anatomy. That allows you to accurately see and anticipate every detail of a lumbar puncture or other needle insertion procedure.
“Sim&Care really allows sensations very close to reality and it’s a nice meeting we had with the startup InSimo who had developed this expertise in force feedback […] We developed a collaboration in a few months and my service was in charge to test technical advances and the realistic side of the device. We also ask our students to check the applicability of this device and its pedagogical value. InSimo regularly visits the department with its devices and we have built a great collaboration[…] We have had thanks to this fruitful collaboration different gratifications and prizes, like the one obtained during the hacking health camp. The objective of Sim&Care is really to improve the training of the students and to reduce the pain of the patients!”
“This collaboration highlights the meeting between a medical need and technical and technological means. InSimo was very reactive once the problematic was announced and the first meeting… In fact, everything was created within a couple of weeks ! […] We really appreciated that InSimo invested time and human resources on this project which was only a draft at the time. […] Today it is necessary to create a means to simulate all invasive procedures in medicine so that students are well trained and above all well prepared without going through a patient for the first time, as HAS the fundamental principle ! This is the promise of Sim&Care for training in lumbar puncture.”
