Work with Us
Driven by cutting edge research, and utilizing the latest available technology, The Simulation Group at MGH develops medical simulation systems based on the needs of clinicians. The Group draws on multidisciplinary expertise to design and develop medical simulators that will mark a new era of medical practice, permitting a time when students, residents, and physicians will practice medicine without putting patients at risk.
The simulator prototypes that we develop are intended for a broad spectrum of ultimate users, from military medics and civilian first responders, to specialist clinicians such as ophthalmic surgeons and neuroendovascular interventional radiologists, from primary care physicians and nurses, to municipal officers rehearsing for disaster planning In parallel, our research has provided devices to quantify the biomechanical behavior of living tissues, software tools to simulate physical and imaging interactions with anatomy, and enhanced surgical and medical instruments.
Where and Why
We are currently developing a series of simulators, which hybridize the useful features of physical mannequin and anatomical models with the quantitative measurement capabilities and interactivity provided by software and mechatronic systems. These include an Ocular and Craniofacial Trauma simulator for the DoD; and CIMIT-funded projects in modular enhancement of low-cost mannequin-based simulators; creating vascular access components for pediatric procedures including ECMO; a smart-phone-integrated trainer for teaching IV cannulation; and improvement of a surgical hemorrhage control training simulator.
