Researchers at the Cardiff University spinout MedaPhor Group (AIM: MED) have recently launched the new BodyWorks Eve simulator platform that will be used to train medical professionals practicing Point-of-Care Ultrasound (PoCUS) across emergency medicine and critical care.

The simulator is believed to be the first hi-fidelity female manikin-based simulator for emergency PoCUS training.

BodyWorks Eve combines the typical and obsessive hearts from MedaPhor’s HeartWorks test system with the total upper chest to pelvis genuine patient sweeps from MedaPhor’s ScanTrainer stage to educate the prerequisites of the developing PoCUS abilities showcase, as illustrated by the International Federation of Emergency Medicine (IFEM).

Done with more than 100 genuine patient ultrasound cases and more than 10,000 patient situation mixes, BodyWorks Eve repeats learning in a genuine crisis or basic care setting, enabling the coach to control and change the seriousness and pathology of the patient continuously.

Medaphor in collaboration with Lifecast Body Simulation (“Lifecast”), also developed a range of accurate and lifelike ‘bodies’ for medical training, to increase the realism of the BodyWorks Eve simulator. Lifecast supplies the ultra-realistic manikin, which combines with MedaPhor’s intelligent ultrasound simulation technology.

Stuart Gall, Chief Executive Officer at MedaPhor, comments: “Point-of-Care ultrasound, whilst transforming the front line in emergency medicine and critical care, presents a huge challenge for the global medical industry in terms of upskilling the workforce. BodyWorks Eve is designed to meet these specific PoCUS training requirements and help universities, colleges, and hospitals bridge the training gap to deliver positive outcomes for patients.”
