Use SimPad PLUS to:
The Simpad PLUS System is compatible with all new and existing Laerdal products and simulators, which include:
SimPad PLUS is compatible with SimPad and VitalSim compatible products as well.
When simulation tools are easy to use, teaching becomes more effective. SimPad PLUS has been designed in close collaboration with simulation users, from many disciplines, to ensure it provides an easy and efficient way to run simulations.
SimPad PLUS gives you the confidence to know that you can run simulations quickly and efficiently. With its large, intuitive touch screen design, SimPad PLUS is virtually a "Pick up and Play" experience, allowing you to easily deliver highly effective simulation-based education.
With SimPad PLUS, you'll spend less time learning how to use the technology, and more time teaching. SimPad PLUS will improve your ability to deliver valid, high quality simulations more efficiently. It's an easier way to achieve your learning objectives.
Imagine maximizing every teaching experience
You can now put more educational power into your current educational program.
Experience a new level of simulation mobility
Picture what total mobility can do for your simulation learning experience. With SimPad PLUS you'll be able to help learners prepare for any situation or environment, which will enhance the learning experience like never before.
SimPad PLUS's portability will make set up time and transportation faster, easier and more convenient. But ultimately, it's the freedom you'll have to make training more clinically relevant that will change the readiness of students to provide the best patient care.
SimPad PLUS is built to Laerdal's industry-leading high standards, ensuring quality, ruggedness and durability.
A world of simulation resources in the palm of your hand
Having access to the teaching and management resources you need, when you need them, can make all the difference in the simulation learning. Whether you're training on a simulator, task trainer, or with a standardized patient, you'll be able to teach with increased confidence knowing that you're an integrated part of a bigger simulation community. This will truly make simulation easier!
With SimPad PLUS, you'll have access to teaching and management resources to support your educational needs. SimPad PLUS provides access to SimCenter to provide validated simulation content, management tools and assessment tools to get the most from every teaching experience.
