Responding to educator demand for realistic simulators and models that better prepare Emergency Medical Technician students for high-demand careers, Wisconsin-based developer of interactive learning solutions announces new line of EMT training tools
Eau Claire, Wis. (February 3, 2020) – Realityworks, Inc. announces the release of over a dozen simulators and learning aids for Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) training. The new product line features over a dozen new training tools, including a Closed Fracture Trauma Manikin, an Arm Amputation and Bleeding Control Trainer, a Trauma Wound Simulation Suit and an ECG Simulator (a 2020 Edison Award™ finalist). Each training tool was created to help instructors train students on life-saving skills, prepare them for real-world emergencies and engage them in high-demand Emergency Medical Services careers.
“Realityworks is continually searching for opportunities to serve growing career and technical education pathways, and it’s in this spirit that we developed our new EMT product line,” said Denise Bodart, Realityworks Product Manager. “These interactive training tools, many of which are one-of-a-kind, will help prepare future EMTs with the skills they need to meet workforce demand – and save lives.”
Realityworks’ new EMT training tools include:
- ECG Simulator, a unique tool that uses software, hardware and curricula to teach students how to properly place leads and recognize and mitigate commonly read errors
- Closed Fracture Trauma Manikin, which enables students to practice palpating, manipulating and immobilizing closed fractures, plus a dozen other healthcare skills
- Arm Amputation and Bleeding Control Trainer, which simulates upper limb amputation (including a realistic bone and simulated blood) to give students realistic opportunities practicing bleeding and hemorrhage control
- Trauma Wound Simulation Suit, a wearable suit that enables students to practice handling bleeding trauma emergencies and communicating with bleeding patients
“As a practicing volunteer EMT and the head of Engineering at Realityworks, I am very excited about our new EMT tools,” said Jeremiah Bauer, Realityworks Engineering Manager and a certified EMT. “No longer do we need to rely on our imagination or listen to an instructor feeding us symptoms and vital signs that we could actually be gathering or searching for – these tools will let EMT students create realistic scenarios that combine practical, hands-on skills with deductive thinking.”
Realityworks’ line of EMT training tools has been added to a line-up of health science tools focused on bringing realism into the classroom, engaging today’s students while teaching in-demand skills and career exploration. Realityworks continues to look for other product development opportunities within CTE and STEM and in areas with a skills gap to engage today’s students in needed career fields.
