Product Description

The Bionic Hybrid Simulator™ from Cardionics is a wearable auscultation shirt with a simulation software system for standardized patients which offers instructors a realistic and accurate solution for scenario simulations. The innovative approach of wearable simulation in patient care enables them to test their students’ skills without giving away signs and symptoms, while they practice the bedside interactions with a Standardized Patient. Most importantly, student engagement grows as they build confidence in their clinical skills.

With ECG, pulse points, the SimBP™ Simulator for Blood Pressure, and Auscultation of the heart, lungs, and bowel, the BHS™ provides extensive training capabilities for Standardized Patient simulation. Instructors can control normal and abnormal conditions from a set of available parameters in real-time. The BHS™ allows students to interact with a live patient while assessing signs and symptoms independently.

The BHS™ software is efficient and easy to use. In minutes, the instructor will be able to customize the patient’s parameters and set up the BHS™ wearable simulator according to their scenario. Moreover, with its own Wi-Fi hotspot, all devices are constantly interconnected so the instructor feels in control of the simulation at every moment.

The new wearable Bionic Hybrid Simulator™ auscultation trainer has been improved with the following New features:

  • Zipper along the neck to increase the neck hole size
  • Six size-adjustable velcro straps on the chest, waist, and hips for an improved fit, and accommodates sizes M-L
  • The slim battery pack inside the new TechPack (& WiFi Hub) can now easily be accessed and recharged via a USB port
  • Due to the new slick design, the new TechPack (& WiFi Hub) can be easily housed in a useful pocket found on the side of the shirt
  • A vibration-based carotid and radial pulse provides more realistic feedback
  • The Bionic Hybrid Simulator™ features posterior, and anterior auscultation points and an enlarged sound library (63x sounds) using the SimScope® stethoscope

Key Features:

  1. SimScope® Electronic Training Stethoscope with a dedicated laptop
    • SimScope® is an electronic auscultation simulation-training stethoscope that allows students to auscultate at the anatomically correct locations, both anteriorly and posteriorly. With RFID sensor tags woven precisely into the fabric of the BHS™, a pre-selected sound will play as soon as the SimScope® stethoscope’s chest piece is navigated onto one of the anatomically correct locations on the garment. When accessing the SimScope® software, educators can pick any sound from the large Cardionics auscultation library consisting of 63 sounds, enabling their students to engage in a human-to-human auscultation practice and hands-on training actively.
  2. SimBP™ Simulator for Blood Pressure
    • SimBP™ is a simulator used to replicate manual blood pressure measurement. It has a soft inflatable cuff that is fastened around the Standardized Patient’s arm, while the pressure meter indicates the cuff's pressure. The student uses a small, handheld air pump to realistically inflate the cuff and then slowly releases air pressure by twisting the air valve. As the pressure is released, the SimScope® stethoscope is used to listen to arterial blood flow sounds to determine the diastolic and systolic pressures as well as identify the Korotkoff phases
    • SimBP™ offers individual adjustment of systolic and diastolic pressures as well as the heart rate. Measurements range between 20 and 300 mmHg and the sound volume of SimScope® stethoscope can be adjusted. 
  3. 5-wire ECG connections
    • The BHS™ garment has five integrated snaps compatible with three bipolar limb leads (lead I, II, III) and one unipolar lead (V1), hence is compatible with most real ECG monitors. It offers four different waveforms and is synchronized with heart rate and pulses for more reality.
  4. Carotid and radial pulse points
    • Some medical conditions can be a factor in determining the best place for taking the pulse. Therefore, the BHS™ offers the possibility to measure both: radial pulses using the simulated radial artery in the wrist, and the carotid pulse on the simulated carotid artery in the neck
  5. Log file
    • All activities performed during a scenario including time stamps are trackable with the log file functionality and can be saved as a separate file for debriefing
  6. Pre-recorded vocal sounds
    • Remotely activated from the SimScope® software by the instructor, the pre-recorded vocal sounds can be played into the earbuds worn by a Standardized Patient to provide clues and guidance

The Benefits of Standardized Patient Simulation with the Bionic Hybrid Simulator™:

  • Capable of recreating unlimited simulated medical scenarios to supplement any curriculum
  • Create and save custom scenarios
  • Wearable technology can be put both on Standardized Patients as well as on patient simulators for added realism
  • Allows students to perform a physical assessment, while retaining the human-to-human interaction necessary for realistic, engaging education
  • Enhances the exam performance by responding in real-time to diagnosis and treatment

Comes Standard With:

  • One BHS™ garment (size Medium-Large), washable (30°C gentle cycle)
  • SimBP™ Blood Pressure Simulator
  • SimScope® Auscultation Training Stethoscope
  • Laptop with pre-installed SimScope® software
  • Hard carrying case
  • USB cable
  • Battery charger
  • Compact Techpack (Battery- & WiFi-Hub)
  • In-ear headphones

Please Note: 

The purchase of Bionic Hybrid Simulator™ includes a complimentary 30-day SAM4 Online® license. SAM4 Online® is an interactive online auscultation training platform that gives students and instructors access to an extensive simulated sounds library, lesson guides for over 100 conditions, and tools to chart the learning progress. The comprehensive sound library and the instructor aid make SAM4 Online® suitable for every level of auscultation training.
