Simulated Participants wearing the Avkin product line can now get their haptic cues through vibrations on the Avband by paring the two products through the Avkin App.


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 SP and control room with a wearable. The colored LEDs and vibrations offer discreet cues to the simulated participant.

Wearable Communication Redefined

Created by Simulationists for Simulationists, Avband is a smartwatch look-a-like for inconspicuous 3-way communication between the control room, patient, and Avkin simulators. Pair Avkin products with the Avband to change the vibration feedback from the product strap to the patient’s watch on their wrist. Utilizing the Avkin app educators can customize the assortment of colored lights in the Avband to progress the simulation forward and quietly notify the patient that there should be a change in condition. Avband is meant to replace the need for including bulky ineffective earpieces in simulation. An additional feature of the Avband includes an alert button on the side of the product that allows the live patient to send a panic notification to the control room if they feel psychological and/or physically unsafe at any time during the simulation. Experts recommend Avband as the only solution for inconspicuous closed-loop communication between the control room and the live patient during the simulation.
