Recently in Tampa, SynDaver Labs, who focus on high-fidelity synthetic human and animal simulators for medical and veterinary training, announced the expansion of their executive leadership team Monday with the hiring of Kevin King as their new vice president of global marketing. Not many companies in our industry are in the public sector so this is exciting news!

“This is a great day for SynDaver, and I am very excited to have Kevin join my leadership team,” said Dr. Christopher Sakezles, founder of SynDaver Labs. “As we continue to experience record growth, the wisdom and expertise Kevin brings will be instrumental to our expansion as we continue progress towards our planned IPO.” King, a native of Toronto, Canada, and an 18-year seasoned healthcare executive in the medical simulation marketplace, moved to the Tampa Bay area in 2015, where he served as a senior executive for CAE Healthcare, before joining SynDaver’s executive leadership team.

“SynDaver’s products are profoundly transformational in terms of medical education, and there’s nothing like them anywhere in the world, which is why I found SynDaver attractive,” King said. “Prior to my executive leadership roles, I have more than 15 years serving patients as a critical care paramedic in the air environment and on the ground, so patients and their outcomes are still fundamentally important to me. With SynDaver, I feel the company’s vision closely aligns with mine by providing the highest-fidelity simulated trainers to both human doctors and veterinarians so we can improve training and help save lives.”  Prior to his time at CAE, King worked for Muskoka EMS as chief of ambulance services and was adjunct faculty at METI in Sarasota as a critical care clinical educator.

SynDaver recently experienced a record-breaking second quarter and is expected to double their sales from last year. Additionally, this past January, SynDaver began executing plans to enable them to have an initial public offering, which is scheduled for 2020.

During the three-day conference the two companies will demonstrate what they believe to be the most medically accurate and comprehensive medical training simulation system built to date. This system will utilize a combination of SynDaver’s flagship Synthetic Patient model and EMS’s SIMULATIONiQ operating platform.

The SynDaver Synthetic Human is the most life-like synthetic human mannequin ever created, while EMS’s SIMULATIONiQ platform provides software and equipment that drives the entire simulation process and provides feedback, debriefings and audio and visual playbacks.

“We are excited to form this partnership with SynDaver Labs,” said Anurag Singh, CEO of EMS. “By integrating with these mannequins, SIMULATIONiQ customers are able to analyze and assess data over time, enabling our customers to better track the progression of learning.”

By forming this partnership, SynDaver Labs and EMS hope to establish a new standard for medical simulation training systems and better prepare students in the healthcare industry for real-world medical emergencies and patient-care protocols.

“We are constantly looking for ways to provide better products to our clients, and this new partnership with EMS will allow us to do exactly that,” said Dr. Christopher Sakezles, President and founder of SynDaver Labs. “We are thrilled to begin demonstrating the SIMULATIONiQ platform in conjunction with our Synthetic Human at IMSH, and know this is a step in the right direction for the medical education industry as a whole.”
