North East, Maryland, January 22, 2019 – Operative Experience Inc., (OEI) a company that develops the world’s only hands-in-the-body medical simulators for obstetrics, trauma and surgical training, today announced the launch of TCCS Plus, a military grade, high-fidelity simulator designed to provide hyper-real, clinically-responsive trauma training for combat medics on the battlefield as well as civilian first responders in active shooter and other mass casualty scenarios.
TCCS Plus provides training for forward deployed medical personnel encountering casualties in austere environments who require prolonged medical care while awaiting evacuation. The simulator’s clinical capabilities are designed to conform to the Joint Trauma System (JTS) Center of Excellence and Deployment Medicine training standards, including hemorrhage control, advanced airway management, closed head trauma identification, cardiac compromise, advanced respiratory disorders, intravenous cannulation and advanced monitoring.
“When we launched the original Tactical Casualty Care Simulator (TCCS) for all combatant Tactical Combat Casualty Care training in 2017, it quickly became recognized as the most lifelike and anatomically accurate trauma simulator on the market,” said Paul Bernal, VP Global Business Development Government & Military for OEI. “Now, with TCCS Plus we’re able to bring that same life-identical realism to the critically important area of prolonged field care by offering a new line of advanced clinical features for all forward deployed medical personnel.”
TCCS Plus is a ruggedized full body, wireless and tetherless, fully articulated simulator featuring on-the-fly tablet control, pre-programmed clinical scenarios and over 14 hours of continuous battery powered run time in indoor and outdoor environments. TCCS Plus is also available in five wound pattern configurations that simulate traumatic injuries from IED explosions, blunt trauma and gunshot wounds.
“TCCS Plus is the first of a new generation of high-fidelity OEI simulators we are introducing in 2019,” said Mick Navin, President and CEO of OEI. “Our simulators, recognized for unprecedented anatomic accuracy and soft tissue fidelity, will now be physiologically responsive and enable clinical care for military and civilian medical providers. This further establishes OEI simulators as the most realistic in the industry for combat casualty response, active shooter scenarios, obstetrics, and surgical team training.”
TCCS Plus will be introduced this month at the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) in San Antonio, Texas, the industry’s leading conference for the latest innovations and best practices in healthcare simulation. OEI will be exhibiting in the conference Expo Hall at booth #114.
