TraumaMan has been a mainstay of our ICEP Emergent Procedures Course, our EM house staff and student courses, and our recent ACEP Simulation-Based Immersive Medical (SIM) Training Course. Highly recommend!

As an emergency medicine physician and simulation medicine director, I feel that the procedural training offered by Simulab’s TraumaMan is the closest I’ve encountered to the real thing. The unit is easy to set up and has good portability. Overall, I feel that the TraumaMan enhances the simulation environment, adds realism, and is an excellent tool for procedural medical training.

This is, given current technology, one of the best models for teaching the surgical skills lab.

Hands down, the only one that competes with animals for ATLS procedures and is competitive on cost is the Simulab torso trainer.

In November, I was part of a team of 14 attending physicians and residents who traveled to India. When in Mumbai we collaborated with Hinduja Hospital and Lifesupporters Institute of Health Sciences then organized an Emergency Medicine Conference for 150 young physicians interested in our specialty.
We brought the TraumaMan System for use in this training and the system was great - it really facilitated our travels to Mumbai. The suitcase is regulation size, with rollers, making our lives easy as we were traveling with a group with a lot of equipment. When we arrived in India, we were on a tight schedule.
So the ease of set up was nice. The "pack and play" set up allowed us to arrive and effectively start the course. One of the neatest aspects of the course in Mumbai was the opportunity it provided. There is almost no surgical training for anyone other than the highest specialists in the surgical field - only a very elite group can get this training. Most of the course attendees had never had access to this training - they had never seen or touched the TraumaMan System and were extremely excited to have the opportunity to practice emergency procedures.
Having access to TraumaMan will allow us to generate a new cadre of emergency medicine practitioners who, before this, had no access to this kind of training. In the end, TraumaMan allowed us to teach surgical procedures to a large group of students who otherwise would have no access to this type of training. We were able to take an in-house training system, easily travel with it around the globe, and use it in a facility in Mumbai with no hiccups. What a great opportunity.
