ECG simulation-based e-training

Monday, August 3 2015

SCHILLER has teamed up with medsim specialists EPICARDIO to offer a market-leading simulation-based ECG e-training program to its customers.

Responding to requests from its customers to provide innovative training techniques to complement its medical technology solutions, SCHILLER has worked with the UK based company to bring them a cutting-edge customised e-training package.

This fully interactive “flight” simulator for the heart provides a unique live 3D view of the human heart including tutorials, which enables active learning-by-doing on any web browser. SCHILLER customers will be offered subscriptions for the package, which provides self-training and reference materials for their medical staff via their existing computer resources.

Dominik Doppler, VP Marketing and Sales of SCHILLER said ”We are very excited to be able to bring this unique e-learning tool to our customers. It will be a real added value. The fact that the most pathologies are integrated allows the customers an extremely effective ECG reading training.”

“The co-operation with SCHILLER has enabled us to access their expertise and extensive ECG data to tailor the package to provide maximum benefit to the physician and trainee alike” says Dr Vassilios Hurmusiadis, CEO of EPICARDIO “we are thrilled to be able to combine our technology with the excellence of SCHILLER products."

The success of this partnership has led SCHILLER and EPICARDIO to begin developing further diagnosis support tools together. Information on these projects will be provided during the course of the year.
