Simulation & Training

SimPad PLUS is an operating device used to control Laerdal manikins and simulators and can be used with task trainers and standardised patients. It allows instructors, new or experienced, to deliver highly-effective simulation-based training.

When simulation tools are easy to use, teaching becomes more effective

With its intuitive touchscreen interface, mobile design, easy-to-operate scenarios and integrated data log, SimPad PLUS will help you achieve learning objectives with greater ease.

Use SimPad PLUS to:

Realistic clinical experience

Enhance clinical realism and challenge critical thinking skills with dynamic monitoring and patient interaction.

The optional touchscreen Laerdal Patient Monitor provides concise clinical feedback and simulates physiological parameters including HR, ECG, SpO2, BP, RR, Temperature, etCO2, and 12 lead.

The included headset and microphone will enable effective two-way communication with the patient, adding ‘life’ to the simulation.

Key features of the SimPad PLUS

  • Mobililty
  • Quick set up time
  • Intuitive touchscreen interface
  • Control of patient vital signs and physiological parameters
  • Optimal data capture for effective performance debriefs

Work the way it suits you

Dual operating modes mean that SimPad PLUS features two unique ways to control simulations. Instructors can individually adjust parameters for real-time control or use pre-programmed content to reduce their workload and increase standardisation.

Manual Mode

Run “on-the-fly” for total control over all parameters or utilise Themes for a more consistent simulation experience. Themes provide a quick and easy way to change the patient’s condition with a single “tap”.

Automatic Mode

Utilise pre-programmed scenarios for a simple and effective way to run a simulation. The logged events, as well as events detected by the patient simulator, can automatically drive the scenario forward.

Easily integrate structured, self-directed learning into curricula

It improves their confidence because now they can learn whenever they want and they do it on their own terms.
