Technology

At the Simulation and Interactive Learning Centre we have a wide range of technological recourses that allow us to provide and support a diverse portfolio of training opportunities, these include:

  • techA variety of advanced human patient simulators to cover adult, Paediatric, maternity, new born and trauma scenarios. All our advanced manikins can be assessed using the ABCDE approach to provide a fully interactive simulation experience
  • Advanced Older person manikin for nursing skills including catheterisation stoma care and manual blood pressure taking.
  • A range of video and audio equipment that covers all of our simulation environments to allow viewing, recording and playback in any location within our simulation centre.
  • Ultrasound simulators for imaging training. and line insertion
  • Laparoscopic box trainers and haptic simulators for practicing essential skills and procedures.
  • Numerous Part-Task Trainers for practicing skills including cathereterisation cannulation phlebotomy traeosotomy and airway management.
  • Fully customisable high fidelity simulation environment that can be converted into a variety of clinical and home environments including an operating theatre, ICU, ward and care home
