The Babies have become so much more than just a project for these students. They have really become a great discussion piece for choosing to parent or building their resumes for jobs.

Our goals are to help students get into careers and to help the ones that do make the mistake of becoming pregnant before graduating high school.

We found that the simulators really push the students. By the time they get done with them, they're ready for the real thing and they jump right in.

These products provide a consistent, safe experience for students before going into a clinical setting.  They have the opportunity to handle these babies in different ways; to know what is safe; and how to bathe and swaddle them; to understand how to approach them.

We’re trying to get these kids excited about getting skilled and getting into manufacturing careers. This equipment is enhancing our ability to do that.

I wanted to be able to teach my students to be more understanding and empathetic with the aging process once we made it into our clinical rotation at the local nursing home. I wanted them to understand why the residents moved so slowly and I wanted them to learn to be patient and kind while working with them.

It is so important to get these kids to understand the pains and aches that our elderly generation feel every day, so that they can provide better care for our aging population.

I have never used a virtual welder before, but guideWELD VR is very easy to use... I actually look out for my angle now while welding for real... it has helped a lot.

I have given the students a few things to do, such as buttoning a shirt, tying their shoes and fastening a belt, while wearing the Geriatric Arthritis Simulators… the students are rising to the challenge and are definitely feeling the effects of wearing the simulator while attempting the tasks. There have been numerous comments from students referring to the elderly person they know who has arthritis, and also complaints about the pain and awkwardness of wearing and using the simulator, which I feel is a good thing… I plan to keep using these simulators in the future.
