    CONFIDENCE

    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.

    Effective

    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.

    Efficient

    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.

    Complete

    SimPad PLUS can also be used with non-manikin simulations, such as standardized patients or task trainers. Simply run the scenario in Automatic Mode, log the learning events and use the Log Viewer application for post-event debriefing and evaluation.

    FREEDOM

    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.

    Portability

    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.

    Quality

    SimPad PLUS is built to Laerdal's industry-leading high standards, ensuring quality, ruggedness and durability.

    SUPPORT

    A world of simulation resources in the palm of your hand
