Mechdyne to Demonstrate Latest Simulation Technologies at the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare 2012

Marshalltown, IA, January 27, 2012 --( Mechdyne Corporation will demonstrate the latest in immersive simulation technologies at this year’s International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) 2012. The conference will take place January 29 – 31, 2012, at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California.

In partnership with the Uniformed Services University of the Health Services (USUHS) National Capital Area Medical Simulation Center (SimCen), Mechdyne will provide a Wide Area Virtual Environment (WAVElet). Together, Mechdyne and SimCen will integrate virtual reality, live actors, patient simulators and part tasks trainers to create a comprehensive medical team training environment.

Each day of the conference, they will utilize the WAVE, which was designed, engineered and integrated by Mechdyne, to conduct a number of emergency and disaster response scenarios. The simulated medical training demonstrations will take place three times a day at the conference, as part of the Military Medical Simulation and Training Consortium exhibition, in booth #18.

The WAVE that will be utilized at IMSH 2012 was custom designed by Mechdyne and is the second immersive solution the technology company has provided for the National Capital Area Medical Simulation Center at USUHS. Mechdyne designed and integrated USUHS’ first immersive system in 2005. The second generation WAVE utilized at IMSH 2012 is part of a total medical simulation solution Mechdyne will install at SimCen later this year.

IMSH 2012 offers a wide range of educational and networking opportunities for healthcare professionals interested in the field of medical simulation. As part of the international conference, Kurt Hoffmeister, Vice President of Research and Development for Mechdyne, will serve as a panelist for a session entitled “The State of the Art and Challenges in 3D Immersive and Holographic Imaging Technology Applied to Medical Modeling and Simulation.” The focus for Hoffmeister’s presentation will be “3D Immersive Display Challenges for Medical Modeling and Simulation.”
