A realistic, full-body simulator for paediatric emergencies

SimJunior represents a 6-year-old boy that simulates a wide range of conditions from a healthy, talking child to an unresponsive, critical patient with no vital signs.

SimJunior allows learners to focus on a broad range of pediatric skills in order to gain exposure and practical experience of life-threatening pediatric problems.

Available with a range of Technical and Educational Services, as well as validated simulation content, SimJunior presents a complete simulation solution for your pediatric training programs.

Operation and debriefing options

Integrated Debriefing

Learner outcomes improve through structured debriefing after simulation-based learning event. SimCapture seamlessly integrates with LLEAP (for PC and SimPad PLUS) providing a debriefing and assessment solution that captures audio, video, annotations, the patient monitor, and simulator data in a single web-based interface.



Integrating a simulated patient monitor enhances clinical realism and will challenge critical thinking skills.... Integrating a simulated patient monitor enhances clinical realism and will challenge critical thinking skills.

Partnering to improve pediatric outcomes

Developed in partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics, you now have new opportunities to integrate the latest technologies into pediatric and newborn training programs.

Pairing this product solution with educational content developed and validated by organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, allows learners to master the skills needed to care for pediatric patients and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
