SimMan Trauma

Prepare for the unexpected

Rugged and reliable, SimMan Trauma is specifically designed to meet military needs for a quality, mobile simulation solution that can adapt to unique training environments and meet all educational objectives.

Designed for emergency services

SimMan Trauma is specifically designed for military and civilian emergency services to simulate the treatment of a trauma patient. SimMan Trauma is well suited for training in:

  • Rapid assessment of a trauma emergency
  • Hemorrhage control
  • Airway management

The durable design, together with specifically selected features, such as amputated limbs and sternal IO access, make it possible for learners to fully immerse themselves in the simulated scenarios.
