Get the latest updates on SmartMan!
SmartMan Products, Courses and Services are created to produce improved skills performance for people who might be called upon to respond to a medical emergency. In particular, when a person suffers a sudden cardiac arrest or from acute respiratory distress or other life threatening emergency, a high level of skills competence performed in a timely manner greatly improves outcomes..
The aim of following protocols without hesitation, being able to communicate effectively with others, and performing skills to the highest level have the aim of providing the patient with the best chance of leaving the hospital in better neurological condition.
More Survivors in Better Condition!
As a company we measure our success by whether more people survive to go home to their families.
SmartMan is designed to have you achieve the high performance of emergency response skills possible. Our manikin systems are rugged, durable, and able to take continued pounding yet retain accuracy.
Accuracy. SmartMan training products are scientific instruments that provide accurate measurement of all parameters which relate to emergency skills performance. Tolerances are well beyond what a person is able to perceive.
Threshold. The word Quality is defined and objectively measured with SmartMan. The accuracy provides a reliable measurement so that the threshold of performance indicated in the science can be met.
Verifiable. Activities provide a score on how well a skill is performed. You have immediate access to an analysis where the performance parameters are put into a chart. And if you want, the data points for each performance are available immediately.
Educational Metric. Objective evidence based evaluation of skills performance is essential to developing a body of people who are able to perform correctly. SmartMan gives individuals and trainers a way to establish the proper objective evaluation of skills.
Competence means being able to perform required skills at a required level.
Practice. To be competent an individual must be trained and they must be trained to perform correctly to within the specified tolerance. With proper practice the skill can be developed as muscle memory so that the correct performance becomes automatic.
Test yourself. The individual who performs must know whether he or she is performing correctly. And if they need to adjust their performance they should be able to do it immediately.
Meaningful Refresher. This should be able to be done in a couple of minutes. Once a person already knows how to perform well, the skills which are not often performed simply need to be topped up. There are two aspects to this: i) they should be able to do this in a couple of minutes: ii) if an adjustment needs to be done it can be done on the fly immediately; once the person is certain they have adjusted their performance, they develop confidence based on knowledge that they are capable of performing well.
Objective Demonstration. In order for a student and for a trainer to know that a person is able to perform, both must have an accurate objective way to assess performance. SmartMan provides both with such a tool.
SmartMan manikins are designed specifically for training of skills in emergency response. They provide a high quality look and feel with state of the art feedback as you perform.
Rugged. They are sophisticated digital manikins but at the same time they are built to take continue use.
Digital. Proprietary sensors were designed to produce the most accurate digital data stream in the industry. The manikins and the simulations work together to developer in depth knowledge and improve performance.
Physical Excellence. High quality look and feel gives excellent tactile response for compressions. Specific features such as external adjustment of chest resistance, air flow in the airway system that responds to movement of the chest, visualization of the air as it flows, provides a high degree of learner support which is built on the science.
SmartMan's Award Winning Feedback is so simple you can adjust your performance on the fly. It is always accurate and always easy to understand.
Real Time. To be competent an individual must be trained and they must be trained to perform correctly to within the specified parameters. With proper practice the skill can be developed as muscle memory so that the correct performance becomes automatic.
Educational Aids. Tutorials which work on specifically difficult sub-skills are included. Extra teaching aids are available at the click of a button. For example, you can turn the metronome on and off, or turn the feedback off, or review a performance on a big screen. There is even a metronome for practicing ventilations.
Rapid Refresher. Designed for quick self check of skills. In less than 4 minutes a person can go through a quick check and re-hone skills so they are certain they are performing correctly. This quick practice done a few times will reinforce correct performance so that it becomes automatic.
