Tech Brief: The HapMed™ Medical Skills Training Suite is comprised of multiple instrumented manikins to teach hands-on skills in tourniquet application and airway management. HapMed systems provide patient assessment, decision making, and hands-on practice through a series of built-in training scenarios that feature real-time feedback on performance and after action review.

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: If hemorrhage control and airway management can be better learned, the majority of preventable battlefield deaths can be averted. Moreover, with the increasing number of mass casualty events occurring around the world, empowering first responders and civilians with the ability to control bleeding will result in increased survivability. Skills such as tourniquet application and cricothyroidotomy require many trials to reach proficient performance, but there are few existing opportunities to get extensive hands-on practice. HapMed’s unique hands-on training approach allows trainees to repeatedly practice proper use of a tourniquet and to find the landmarks, proper incision location and depth to open an airway until each of these skills is mastered. HapMed’s rapid repeat trials provide a scalable solution to train large numbers of learners in life-saving skills. Another training challenge is limited training resources. Most full body manikin training simulators are priced beyond the reach of many organizations. HapMed addresses this challenge by offering affordable part-task trainers for the most common causes of preventable death at a fraction of the cost of full body medical manikins.
