SimMan 3G PLUS

Immersive training for emergency care procedures

Introducing SimMan 3G PLUS

Advancing the world’s most trusted patient simulator

Built on decades of expertise, SimMan 3G PLUS offers a fully immersive simulation experience with heightened realism.

Designed to represent a diverse range of patient scenarios to help prepare learners for real-world situations, SimMan 3G PLUS introduces interchangeable face skins for diversity training and full articulation for realistic patient handling. Now you can also train with real clinical devices, in compliance with current guidelines.

Training individually or in a team, learners can practice critical skills such as decision-making, team communication, and patient care. With this improved and realistic feature set, learners encounter complex medical cases all in a risk-free environment. SimMan 3G PLUS ensures that when it’s real, they’ll be ready.

New Features for SimMan 3G PLUS


Interchangeable headskins
Add fidelity to your simulation training with interchangeable headskins, available in all skin tones. Quickly and easily change between an adult or aged patient for added realism.


Fully articulating arms 
Realistic patient handling and added bilateral features offer the capability to train ALS and ACLS scenarios. 


Non-invasive blood pressure
Use a standard clinical monitor for accurate BP measurement. 3G PLUS also has improved pulses.   


Pulse oximetry 
Measure oxygen saturation levels with the same pulse oximeter used on a real patient. No extra equipment necessary for SpO2 monitoring.  


Humeral IO and Deltoid IM 
Deliver intramuscular or intraosseous medications with real devices and fluids. 


Flexible defibrillation options allow your learners to train with real pads or paddles using a live defibrillator. 

Knowledge for a lifetime 

Made for immersive training

Use SimMan 3G PLUS as the cornerstone of your simulation training. Research has proven that high-fidelity simulation training boosts knowledge retention, decision-making skills, and team performance.
