iSimulate provides highly advanced simulation platforms for far less than the cost of traditional systems.
If you own or use a smartphone or tablet, you’ll already know how to use the best of our products.
iSimulate Online provides access to an international network of medical professionals that use our products.
Train anywhere and at anytime, gaining valuable experience without the cost and complexity of traditional simulators.
Students view a realistic patient monitor while the instructor uses a handheld control pad to control everything from parameters to time.
We use the best of iPad technology to deliver medical simulation products like no other. Also, through your feedback we are constantly updating and adding to our products.
In the past, we’ve had to use actual cardiac monitors attached to a rhythm generator. These gave us a very limited number of cardiac rhythms and heart rates, and would allow us to simulate pacing and defibrilliation/cardioversion, but didn’t give us any flexibility to adjust heart rates or to display blood pressures, SpO2, or ETCO2 findings. All of these findings we had to give verbally throughout the scenario, which left our visual and kinesthetic learners less equipped and removed an aspect of realism from the training.
The iSimulate device has taken our scenarios to new level and both our educators and our students have seen tremendous results in using it. It allows us to create dynamic scenarios with all the information the students would be able to get in using a monitor with an actual patient. Being able to simulate ETCO2 is an enormously helpful capability; one we couldn’t get otherwise without a very expensive simulation manikin. I personally love being able to adjust patient vital signs on-the-fly with trending and adjustability. When my students are intubating their scenario patient, I can have the SpO2 drop over time, just like it would on a real patient—and can see whether or not my students notice the dropping SpO2 or if they miss it. Before iSimulate, I’d have to verbally mention the dropping SpO2 which removed that element from the student’s realism. We love iSimulate and have seen it take our education to a whole new level.
The portability of the system enables me to travel easily with it.
We realised a number of years ago that the increasingly high fidelity simulators were far too specialised and only reach their full potential in the rarified atmosphere of the operating theatre or critical care. For most medical educators and their students the iSimulate and a live actor offers far greater versatility and a more immersive and realistic simulation. Scenarios are quick and easy to prepare in any environment and at any level and the iSimulate combined with the well briefed actor, allows remote control of the scenario with minimal instructor input, but without the huge cost and complexity of static Sim centre and mannequin based alternatives.
Although it may seem pricey, ALSi offers a robust and realistic training package at fraction of the cost of only serious rival (SimMan, $17-110K). The after sales support is superb and the price is easily covered from most educational budgets and is easily affordable by an institution. I quarantined two days worth of rural upskilling grant to purchase mine. I would recommend it if you are serious about running sim in the workplace or as on courses. Whilst pricier than the other apps, it is still far, far, far cheaper than the only other contender, Laerdal’s SimMan. It is also highly portable allowing regular repetition of sim training in the workplace rather than in a sim lab
“We find that for training to be effective it has to relevant. Scenarios have to be held in the appropriate environment, which in our world is hostile. Water and complex electrical manikins do not mix, and therefore it has always been difficult to simulate accurate patient monitoring. iSimulate solves the problem of training in the hostile environment allowing us to utilise our water based rescue manikins in combination with iSimulate to produce effective scenarios that would have previously not have been possible. Add to the mix that this is at a fraction of the cost of complex manikins and iSimulate ticks all the boxes!”
The best just got better. ALSi and CTGi already outpace their competitors in ease of use, portability, realism and user interfaces. With ALSi Version 3, the instructor audit tools, timed events, library of ECG and capnography waveforms, lab results, and capability to import your own images, videos (ultrasound, echos), and sounds make this product second to none.
I love that I can stand with my participants and guide them in their learning, and I don't need a second instructor behind a computer in the corner.
