METI is a world leader in developing cutting-edge learning tools for today’s professional healthcare providers. METI, which stands for Medical Education Technologies Inc., started in 1996 but was acquired by CAE Healthcare in 2011. The company is now part of a team of over 7,500 employees in over 25 countries around the world supporting more than 6,000 of their patient simulators. Besides serving the primary care and EMS fields in the United States and numerous other countries, such as METI Japan, the corporation also supports military training units around the world.
METI has a unique range of manikins for simulation medical training including the iStan, METIman, Human Patient Simulator (HPS), Emergency Care Simulator (ECS), PediaSIM and BabySim. Most of these high-fidelity medical simulation manikins now run on METI’s patented Müse software. As one of the original innovators of medical simulation technology, METI has continued to innovate new learning products and solutions that support the world’s healthcare industry. For example, while iStan may be the “flag-ship” manikin for METI, they also provide a range of other medical simulation educational solutions such as eDose or LearningSpace, their learning management system. They also have a full range of surgical simulators including the CAE Laparoscopy VR, CAE EndoscopyVR and CathLabVR, as well as the Viamedix ultrasound simulator.
METI has also expanded to include Learning Modules, or simulation scenario based learning curriculum, to help train your healthcare students or working professionals. Their healthcare simulation based scenarios range from pediatric and adult nursing to ACLS and disaster medical readiness just to name a few. METI helps debrief your simulation training of clinical skills with METIVision, a comprehensive recording and digital playback learning solution.
This Sarasota-based company (with CAE Healthcare headquarters in Montreal) supports medical simulation through regional, national and international HPSN meetings, sponsoring new simulation-based conferences, online tutorials, mentors, videos and forums boards. As well, METI also has a full range of trauma-based and moulage products to directly support first responder and military para-rescue programs sold under the name METI FX.
