What Our Clients Say About Us

Frequently Asked Questions

What is clinical simulation training?

Clinical simulation training allows students in the medical field to practice their skills in an authentic, safe, simulation environment. Simulation-based training provides a great opportunity for students to increase their knowledge in both technical and non-technical procedures, with built-in software providing feedback and guidance along the way. Students can practice, learn, and increase their surgical skills with peace of mind knowing they’re safely practicing without risking the life of a live patient.

Is simulation training effective?

Absolutely. Simulation training allows medical professionals to practice their skills via virtual reality without risking the safety of a live patient. They also have the benefit of reducing the demand on supervision time which leads to more skilled and confident medical professionals. Whilst using the simulator, real time guidance and feedback is provided with the software so any mistakes made are recognised instantly.


Universities throughout Australia and New Zealand would greatly benefit from investing in a surgical simulator for their students studying in the medical industry. This advanced tool allows students to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to move into their preferred field with both confidence and competence.

How much does a clinical simulation cost?

A human patient simulator typically ranges in price from $10,000 to $100,000 depending on the type, brand, features, and included support services.
