For those attending The International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) we invite you to join us at Booth #906 for a demo of Otosim2 in person. “

About the OtoSim2:

OtoSim Inc. continues to innovate with a new simulation and training technology for otolaryngology. Interest and feedback gathered over the past 3 years from various healthcare practitioners has proven to be the catalyst for a novel breakthrough in otoscopy simulation: OtoSim 2.

OtoSim 2 is the upgraded version of OtoSim with new software and hardware, and increased capabilities:

  • Verify student progress via the instrumented otoscope. Trainees can point with this device to complete the learning feedback loop.
  • Expand student knowledge through reviewing 380 high resolution images from the Hawke Library to instruct, practice, and test students
  • Save instructor time by connecting up to 14 OtoSim units to a single trainer laptop to effectively instruct groups at the same time
  • Supplement classroom instruction with 150 pre-annotated images for self-directed learning
  • Improve viewer retention through immersive full-screen experience with a simple, easy-to-use graphical user interface
  • Further increase student capability through advanced quizzes with randomized, realistic clinical scenarios that test both medical and patient interaction skills
  • Build student confidence through the use of the instrumented otoscope, allowing students to practice and improve their otoscopic technique

Top Recommendation:

Does your healthcare simulation program ever need brochures, flyers, banners, letterhead, business cards or other print-related material created?

brochure printing

Well, I rarely come right out and say “work only with this company” but has knocked it out the park every single time I have ever called them. I’ve found throughout my simulation career that University print-shops or high-density city print facilities can be ridiculously expensive. Having been recommended I gave them a shot five years ago and haven’t looked back since! They are always polite, efficient, affordable and fast.  They have even, on more than one occasion, rushed orders for me just because they could. If you first learned of HealthySim through one of our bookmarks then you already know of PFL quality.

simulation brochures

I am happy to report that the folks at PFL have offered our readers $40 off their first order with mention of our website and referral code RP169U4QS !

So next time your sim program needs print material, visit or give them a call at 800-930-6040, just remember code to mention the code above!

Exclusive HealthySim Offer – $500 Off SimAction Products!


Increase Seizure & Defib Realism in your Medical Medical Simulations with an exclusive limited-time offer at! has partnered with owner Greg Stahler from to create a special ‘End-of-the-Fiscal-Year’ Offer on SimSeize and/or SimDefib! But hurry, this offer ends July 1st, 2011!

Watch my 2011 IMSH Interview with Greg about SimAction Products!

The Products:

SimAction’s seizure simulator ‘SimSeize’ is a motorized actuator powerful enough to produce the full body motion of a real seizure, enriching the learner experience during a high-fidelity healthcare simulation! Click here to learn more about SimSeize!

‘SimDefib’, The Defibrillation Simulator is a new product from SimAction that allows instructors to replicate a patient’s physical response to defibrillation.  With a small sensor placed on your sim lab’s defib pads or paddles – SimDefib registers a shock and automatically creates a physical response in your manikin! Although the SimDefib can be sold separately, it makes a GREAT addition to SimSeize. Click here to learn more about SimDefib!

Both SimAction products work with ANY simulator brand as these motion-generating devices install into the standard hospital mattress below your manikin.  Device control pendants can be kept at the bed-side or in your sim lab control room.   The Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas owns the SimSeize and uses it regularly during high-fidelity simulations. And WOW… talk about immediate learner ‘buy-in’ for simulation! The students really react when the patient starts shaking dramatically!
