Newport, Del. – Avkin’s newest wearable, the Avthor, is a comprehensive chest tube simulator designed to provide learners as true to life a simulation as possible. It’s the latest in Avkin’s developing line of high-fidelity wearable simulators.

With a standardized patient wearing the device during simulation, students will practice the movement of the patient and practice communication skills. In addition to having the ability to hook up to a pleurovac, the Avthor provides the highest fidelity medical simulation for patient care that includes: tidaling and fluctuation, blood release, air leak, high intrathoracic pressure, and the ability to assess for crepitus. Coupled with the transport simulation unit, the Avthor chest tube simulator can enhance training opportunities with wearable medical technology for any simulation learning experience.

More information and a video demonstration of the product in simulation is available on our website at https://avkin.com/avthor-chest-tube-simulator/.

Founded in 2016 as a spinout company from the University of Delaware, Avkin was created by Amy Cowperthwait, a nursing simulationist. Frustrated with traditional simulation marketing, she founded Avkin to create high-fidelity wearables and educational services. These are designed to bring healthcare simulations to life thereby maximizing educational outcomes for learners of all skill levels. We currently offer six wearable devices, as well as training for faculty, staff and actors portraying patients. Avkin’s unique products and philosophy have earned it national attention, with awards including industry leader INACSL’s Haden VanGuard Lectureship Award, Best University Startup by the National Council of Entrepreneurial Tech Transfer, and even an appearance with Damon John on the Dr. Oz Show.
