First of its Kind, METIMAN™, Rolls off the Production Floor Headed for Canada
Sarasota – METI, the Sarasota-based manufacturer of medical simulation products and educational software, today announced that it has begun shipping orders of its brand new, wireless patient simulator, METIman . The first four units were shipped to Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST) in Saskatchewan, Canada, and will be used for health care education at each of their four campuses. SIAST already utilizes a number of other METI simulators at their Simulation Center on their main campus in Regina.
METI already has orders and will be delivering METIman to teaching and health care institutions throughout the world, including one to Lakeland College in Alberta, Canada, who were the first to place an order for METIman in March.
“METIman is without a doubt the right simulator at the right time,” said Jeff Dustow, Manager of Capital Projects at Lakeland College. “It gives us the ability to provide the best educational tools available to our students on a scale that we couldn’t have afforded in the past.”
METIman’s state-of-the-art technology operates wirelessly, via a laptop computer and web-based software, but what the nurses and medics who developed him like best is his price. At only $27,000 each, METIman is the lowest priced simulator available today.
“When we introduced our first wireless simulator, iStan® two years ago, I promised that it was just the beginning of this journey,” said Lou Oberndorf, President and CEO of METI. “METIman delivers on our promise to provide advanced technology to fit every need and requirement and we haven’t and won’t stop evolving our learning technologies until every level of the health care community is served.”
METIman is available in two models, one built specifically for nursing education and one for prehospital training.
Based in Sarasota, Florida, Medical Education Technologies, Inc. (METI®) has been a leader in interactive human patient simulation since 1996. Each METI simulator is designed to simulate bleeding, breathing, talking, blinking and numerous other physiological characteristics and various medical emergency scenarios including heart attack, drug overdose, vehicular accidents, effects from weapons of mass destruction, bio-terrorism and other traumatic injuries. More than 5,000 METI simulators are in use at organizations around the world, including leading medical schools such as the Mayo Clinic, Harvard, Cornell, Stanford and others.
