The proximity of the simulation suites to some clinicians, while on site, is still too far for convenient use as part of their daily work routine. Furthermore, the simulation laboratories most closely emulate the ICU and in-patient environments, and are somewhat less realistic for clinicians from other clinical areas. In order to increase opportunities for simulation-based learning for all hospital clinicians, we created a mobile simulation unit to bring ultra high fidelity simulation training programs anywhere within the hospital.
In-situ simulation allows full teams who regularly work together to practice in their native environments. The mobile simulation unit is easily transported into all clinical areas and blends seamlessly into the environment, interfacing with medical equipment in the space. The SIM-Mobile cart brings audio-visual equipment along with a mobile human patient simulator.
