There has been a trend over the last decade toward more realistic manikins and training situations which are referred to as high-fidelity simulated training. The mission of SimAction is to create new and exciting products designed to enhance learning and education in the training environment.
ABOUT OUR FOUNDER
Greg Stahler founded SimAction in 2009 with the goal of improving clinical training for doctors and nurses in emergency situations. Prior to this, Stahler co-invented and engineered the Sensei, a robotic cardiac catheter system at Hansen Medical. Here, his expertise in the field of robotics and medicine created a revolutionary new product designed to operate on the inside of hearts in a minimally invasive approach. Previously, Stahler co-invented and engineered the DaVinci, a robotic laparoscopic surgical system at Intuitive Surgical, a technological breakthrough advancing minimally invasive surgery to the 21st century. Before joining Intuitive, Stahler graduated from the California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.
Stahler was also a 5 time mountain bike endurance race champion, and winner of the 2011 Parkfield Classic. He also coached and competed in track and field and took the bronze medal at the 2011 World Masters Track and Field Championships in the pole vault.
Sim Seize is an easy tool to use when running eclampsia drills. It is very portable and works well with the basic full body manikins. Even though it is not creating a full tonic clonic seizure, it has adequate realism to indicate when the seizure starts and stops, which is all that is actually required. It is simple to activate remotely. If the scenario is an unknown case, a confederate says "Look! Is that a seizure?" Otherwise you can demonstrate what the seizure looks like in the Room Orientation. Many groups of participants have found this sufficiently realistic, and it has prompted appropriate interventions.Kimberly Harney, MD Clinical Professor, Director of OB Resident Simulations - STANFORD UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER
"There is no other product on the market, for any price, that simulates seizures as accurately as SimSeize & SimDefib."Kay Daniels, MDClinical Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Director of the OBSim Program at Stanford Health Services, Stanford University, March 21, 2017
"SimAction solved a need that we had been wrestling with for years....with SimSeize and SimDefib we are able to accurately simulate a seizure for the first time"Julie ArafehMSN, RN, Simulation Specialist, Center for Advanced Pediatric and Perinatal Education (CAPE), Stanford University, March 21, 2017.
‘'SimAction offers many great products and solutions on the market. Thanks to SimSeize, we are now able to accurately simulate a seizure during a medical training scenario.’’
