“80% of the Realism for 20% of the cost!”
After covering the NAEMSE plenary session on the status of simulation in EMS education, I toured the exhibit hall and came across Greg Vis from Hudson Simulation Services who was demonstrating a cost effective product to dramatically increase realism! By adding just a strip of sticky velcro to a wall or storage cabinet surface, you can quickly apply these printed canvas styled papered-walls to quickly add fidelity to your simulated learning environments. Now a distributed product from Nasco and Simulaids, SimSpaces has filled the need for affordable solutions for increasing environment fidelity.
As the practice of simulation has expanded to wide range of settings the need to create context rich learning environments grows alongside . However, budgets for space improvements are often not keeping pace with demand. Simulation settings now not only include simulation centers but may also include classrooms, mobile sites and everything in between. Giving these locations the immersive effect of authentic clinical settings can be challenging. SimSpaces graphic panels can transform any location into attractive and realistic ICU, ER, clinic or Homecare environments without breaking the bank. Creativity can be substituted for large budgets and still achieve a high degree of illusion. To view their available designs and learn more visit SimSpaces.com !

Quick to Install and Long to Last:
Greg explained to me that the first school to ever install SimSpace walls were still going strong over a year later — and once the walls are up they continue to stay strong.
