Some people ask me "What do you do for work?"
“The baby is not real” He is called Rohan. The man is an actor, but the people in uniform are real professionals.
Simulation Man Ltd, my company, works with MedicFX from New Zealand who produces these babies. I brokered a relationship with Extreme Simulations who created this scene during a disaster training event in Israel.
I started Simulation Man Ltd just 6 months ago because I got fed up with large medical equipment companies over profiteering and providing products that the community doesn’t actually need or don’t meet their needs, you cannot simply x 3 on the price because it says “Healthcare or Medical” on the product.
I also wanted to #connect great companies together to work as a team.
And this is where we are:
- In September we will be launching an Advance Life Support Simulator/Manikin that will help train healthcare professionals to save lives within mandatory ALS training. I and a colleague wrote the specification and did the research for this and my partners Extreme Simulations are creating the prototype. This will be launched at the Emergency Services Show, in Birmingham.
- We are consulting through my spin off company CECMedical with Inovytec, who have made the world’s smallest transfer ventilator for acute patient transfer as well as a defibrillator that is truly innovative.
- I am a director of Gener8-Healthcare which provides Immersive rooms for healthcare Simulation training in universities and hospitals. We have a new installation going in at Wansbeck Hospital in the Northeast of England. This is interactive training at its best.
- We now hold the rights to Cyberpatinent in the UK, and am helping globally to establish.. This is eLearning for healthcare. And will soon be available through Simulation Man.
- We have launched and are selling MedicFX in the UK. We have our first sales down in Plymouth. This will help prolong the life span of patient simulators already out there, and can help change the simulators hospitals and universities already have, without the NHS spending thousands of pounds on a new one.
- and 9. are also underway… (But it’s just a small team).
The reality is, we are not making much money at the moment, and it is a bit scary. But…… the aim is not to be rich, its “to do the right thing”.
IT IS AMAZING WHAT WE CAN ACHIEVE BY REMOVING THE PEOPLE IN BUSINESS THAT SEEK TO COMPLICATE AND CREATE BARRIERS TO SUCCESS MAINLY TO OIL THEIR OWN EGOS.
If you want to work with us I’m all ears.
