SynDaver, EMS announce partnership at IMSH

SAN DIEGO – SynDaver Labs and Education Management Services (EMS) have teamed up and plan to showcase their new partnership at the International Meeting for Simulation and Healthcare from January 17-20.

During the three-day conference the two companies will demonstrate what they believe to be the most medically accurate and comprehensive medical training simulation system built to date. This system will utilize a combination of SynDaver’s flagship Synthetic Patient model and EMS’s SIMULATIONiQ operating platform.

The SynDaver Synthetic Human is the most life-like synthetic human mannequin ever created, while EMS’s SIMULATIONiQ platform provides software and equipment that drives the entire simulation process and provides feedback, debriefings and audio and visual playbacks.

“We are excited to form this partnership with SynDaver Labs,” said Anurag Singh, CEO of EMS. “By integrating with these mannequins, SIMULATIONiQ customers are able to analyze and assess data over time, enabling our customers to better track the progression of learning.”

By forming this partnership, SynDaver Labs and EMS hope to establish a new standard for medical simulation training systems and better prepare students in the healthcare industry for real-world medical emergencies and patient-care protocols.

“We are constantly looking for ways to provide better products to our clients, and this new partnership with EMS will allow us to do exactly that,” said Dr. Christopher Sakezles, President and founder of SynDaver Labs. “We are thrilled to begin demonstrating the SIMULATIONiQ platform in conjunction with our Synthetic Human at IMSH, and know this is a step in the right direction for the medical education industry as a whole.”

The SynDaver Synthetic Human is used primarily for surgical simulation, medical training, and medical device development testing. SynDaver’s models are compatible with all known imaging equipment, including CT, MRI, fluoroscopy and ultrasound. Additionally, their products work with all known surgical systems, even systems that employ energy such as lasers.

Each SynDaver model includes skin with fat and fascia planes, all bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fully articulating joints. Additionally, models are equipped with a functioning respiratory system with a trachea, diaphragm and lungs, a complete digestive tract from esophagus to rectum, a urinary tract with kidneys, gall bladder, pancreas, spleen and reproductive organs and finally a functioning circulatory system with heart, coronaries, aorta, vena cava and vasculature to the extremities.
