NORTH EAST, MD, July 27, 2020 — 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 release of TCCS Female Plus, the first high-fidelity, clinically-responsive, female patient simulator for combat medics on the battlefield as well as civilian first responders in active shooter and other mass casualty scenarios.
TCCS Female Plus joins OEI’s TCCS Plus male simulator in offering fully-realistic and anatomically accurate male and female patient simulators for extended training beyond the “golden hour” — the period of time following a traumatic injury during which there is the highest likelihood that prompt medical treatment will prevent death . 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 patient monitoring.
“Before the release of TCCS Female, competitive solutions for female casualty care patient simulators were extremely unauthentic, with some simply offering a male simulator with an overlay representing female anatomy and genitalia, which end users have described to me as being very ‘unrealistic’,” said Paul Bernal, VP Global Business Development Government & Military for OEI. “With women now serving in active combat roles, there’s a critical operational need not just for male simulators but for a realistic, anatomically correct female trauma care simulator to break the gender barrier in tactical care and TCCS Female Plus fully satisfies that need”
TCCS Female Plus is a full body, wireless and autonomous, ruggedized simulator with lifelike soft tissue and skin, on-the-fly tablet control, and over 10 hours of continuous battery powered run time in indoor and outdoor environments. TCCS Female Plus is available in Caucasian, African-American and Hispanic skin tones and in six wound pattern configurations that simulate a variety of traumatic injuries from IED explosions, blunt trauma and gunshot wounds.
“The male and female TCCS Plus models are the first of a new generation of high-fidelity OEI simulators we are introducing in 2020,” said Lou Oberndorf, Chairman and CEO of OEI. “Our simulators, recognized for unprecedented anatomic accuracy and soft tissue fidelity, will now be even more physiologically responsive and enable clinical care for both 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.”
Operative Experience will begin shipping TCCS Female Plus to customers this month. For more information: Click Here
