Customizable colors and intensity of vibration allow you to determine the needed cues for each simulation.
With safety at the forefront of best practice, the incorporated panic button gives the Simulated Participant the ability to communicate with the control room if they feel unsafe.
Closed Loop Communication
Improve communication between the Standardized Patient and control room with a wearable. The colored LEDs and haptic vibrations offer discreet cues to the simulated participant.
Wearable Communication Redefined
Meant to replace the need for including bulky ineffective earpieces in simulation, Avband, is a smartwatch look-a-like for inconspicuous 3-way communication between the control room, patient, and Avkin simulators. An alert button on the side of the product allows the live patient to send a panic notification to the control room if they feel psychologically and/or physically unsafe at any time during the simulation.
Don't take our word for it
The creativity and realism of these products will immerse the healthcare learner more deeply in simulation education, ultimately improving
