TraumaFX® the Multiple Amputation Trauma Trainer (MATT)® medical simulator was featured in CBS Sunday Morning's cover story "How dummies, drills aid medical training."
One of the advances in medical training today is the use of mannequins, such as MATT, that can simulate what humans do in a variety of medical conditions. The story focuses on state-of-the-art digitally-controlled mannequins. At the biggest simulation center in the country, the Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation at the University of South Florida, Dr. Luis Llerena is shown teaching his students to work under the stress of the battlefield using TraumaFX® Multiple Amputation Trauma Trainer (MATT)®
"This is what happens in the military," Dr. Llerena tells his students as he teaches them the correct way to intubate TraumaFX® Multiple Amputation Trauma Trainer (MATT)® within 30 seconds. The room Dr. Llerena is teaching in gets hot and he adds simulated gunshots to simulate battlefield conditions.
Watch the video to see MATT, dressed in military fatigues, in action.
