SimMed is a training instrument for doctors and students of medicine. Especially for the treatment of toddlers, there are only few possibilities of learning in real or realistic situations. On a multi-touch media table, the diagnosis and treatment of a toddler is simulated realistically. In small groups, a virtual patient can be examined and treated under life-like conditions. Different cases are provided as training scenarios.
Doctors and students find a virtual patient on the multitouch media table. Instruments and gestures they know from their medical life allow them to examine the patient. The virtual tools function just like the real ones, so that their usage is easy and quick to learn. SimMed offers the rare chance of examining and treating a gravely ill toddler without risk to it.
