The Whole-Body Simulator (WBS) MATT-PB African American model is a rugged, realistic full body trainer for the treatment of severe trauma. Purpose-built for field exercises and for use in any weather or environment, the WBS MATT-PB offers realistic leg movement and lifelike arterial bleeding that deliver ultra-high-fidelity training for a truly immersive learning experience. It also incorporates pulses, breathing, and real-time feedback though our long-range remote control. Using the WBS MATT-PB, learners can use field techniques such as hand, knee and elbow pressure to occlude bleeding. They can physically locate both radial and carotid pulses, assess breathing patterns and use this information to perform appropriate interventions. The system also incorporates other intervention training such as maintaining a patient’s airway, needle decompression, identifying tension pneumothorax, bi-lateral chest tube insertion, cricothyroidotomy, and Intraosseous (I/O) infusion.
Remote Controlled with Real-time Sensor Data
All TraumaFX high-fidelity simulators are operated by a long-range RC controller which includes sensor data streamed in real-time. Easy to use, menu-driven software takes only minutes to learn. Data is intuitively displayed on the main control screen and provides instructors with instant feedback on patient vitals and the effectiveness of student interventions - such as tourniquet application, wound hemostasis, airway intervention, needle decompression, and chest tube placement.
Training Flexibility and Wound Variation
Each WBS system consists of an upper and lower torso that disconnect for easier storage and transportation. When assembled, the simulator functions as a complete human body and can be operated by a single remote control. Injuries, bleeding, and interventions performed (or not performed) affect overall patient health and vitals.
The connection mechanism used to attach upper and lower torsos is standardized across the entire TraumaFX portfolio, allowing customers the flexibility to customize their configuration by combining different upper and lower torsos to vary the wounds and features needed for their specific training requirements. The remote-control software can recognize and pair with any TraumaFX remote-controlled simulator, providing seamless transition when changing components.
