TRAUMA SIMULATION MODELS
Trauma Simulation Ltd is a Swansea University spin-out created by Professor Ian Pallister specifically to enhance the development of the limb trauma training models produced in prototype form in the course of the MSc Trauma Surgery Programme. The current goals are specifically to enhance the trauma training experience available without resorting to animal or human cadaveric material.
Utilising the novel application of design technology available through the National Centre for Product Design and Development Research (PDR), supported by the development of custom silicone elastomers and special effects techniques with MBI (Wales)/Technovent Limited, complex and versatile models have been developed under contract with the Centre for Defence Enterprise, Porton Down. These models replicate severe lower limb and pelvic trauma from blast injury offering the simulation of a wide range of immediate point-of-wounding and damage control surgical interventions.
