Gaumard Scientific, a provider of simulation technology for healthcare education and training, announced that HAL S5301, an interdisciplinary patient simulator, has been installed at the Emory University Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing's new simulation and learning center. This is the first commercial installation of HAL S5301, which has begun shipping to customers in the U.S.
HAL S5301 introduces several features including Conversational Speech enhanced by artificial intelligence, lifelike motor movement and next-generation simulated physiology that allows HAL to simulate stroke symptoms and other medical conditions. Thus, educators can facilitate true-to-life clinical training experiences in the areas of emergency, trauma, ICU, and med-surg care with a level of fidelity never before possible.
HAL S5301 is a permanent resident at the School of Nursing's Emory Nursing Learning Center, which opened to students this fall. The facility has over 70,000 square feet of teaching and learning space with the capacity for deliberate practice, structured learning, feedback and debriefing, and high-stakes assessment exams. The center also offers immersive learning opportunities for licensed nurses through the Emory Nursing Experience, a partnership with Emory Healthcare. The Emory University Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing's Bachelor of Science (BSN) and Master's programs rank No. 2 in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report.
"We are thrilled to announce the first installation of HAL S5301 at the Emory University Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing. HAL S5301's breakthrough speech enhanced by AI* and its clinical capabilities surpass those of any other patient simulators on the market. HAL represents the new generation of technology that will be used to educate and empower tomorrow's nursing and medical graduates with an unprecedented level of real-world skill, confidence, and preparation," said John Eggert, Gaumard's Executive Vice President.
