The APL-IA is a ruggedized medical simulator created specifically to address the treatment of traumatic upper body injuries and to provide real-time feedback to instructors on the results of the simulation treatment. The APL-IA's arm amputation requires learners to apply tourniquets with sufficient force to stop the flow of blood. The results of the intervention are immediately relayed to the trainer via the easy to use remote control. Data includes the amount of blood lost, the length of time to administer treatment, and if the "patient" survived. The movable jaw and life-like airway allow for full intubation with any available airway adjunct, and contains a sensor to detect and report undue pressure placed on the teeth.
Remote Controlled with Real-time Sensor Data
All TraumaFX high-fidelity simulators are operated by a long-range RC controller which includes real-time telemetry to monitor medical interventions. Easy to use, menu-driven software takes only minutes to learn and sensor data is immediately displayed on the main control screen for quick reference. The display shows key vitals and provides instructors with instant data on the effectiveness of student interventions such as tourniquet application, wound hemostasis, airway intervention, needle decompression, and chest tube placement.
TraumaFX upper and lower trainers can be combined in any configuration to increase training capabilities
