Clinical Simulation Solutions
SimClinic's clinical driving simulators provide therapists with powerful tools to assess and rehabilitate patients’ functional abilities. Government and military medical centers, as well as private hospitals and clinics use SimClinic simulators to help improve the cognitive, sensory and physical functioning of a broad range of patients.
Packed with clinician-oriented features, the DS-200 includes powerful tools that help therapists exercise and measure physical functioning, cognition and vision of their clients.
The advanced DS-250 provides a higher level of realism, incorporating the actual driver cockpit and authentic controls from a Ford Focus automobile.
The DS-250W is a special version of the DS-250 that is fully wheelchair accessible, including a detachable seat platform and electric-lift height adjustment of the driving console to fit all sizes of wheelchairs.
Clinical Research with Hyperdrive
In addition to supporting advanced clinical care, SimClinic systems and software also serve as powerful research tools in the human and medical sciences. Simulators can be configured to include the HyperDrive™ Scenario Authoring and data collection tool. Hyperdrive is a point-and-click, drag-and-drop software package that allows researchers to design, build, and execute their own custom simulation scenarios, including the definition of performance measures and data collection they need for their studies. HyperDrive tools make a significant impact in both the usability and affordability of driving simulation systems used in research applications.
Designed to help foster new and innovative research, the HyperDrive Suite contains research-inspired activities that replicate real driving and deliver the following benefits:
- Tile-based scene authoring
- Large library of static and dynamic scenario entities
- Event and behavior triggers
- Advanced data collection
- Flexible scripting support
Therapy and Rehab Solutions
Therapists use SimClinic simulators to measure patients’ functional abilities and then provide therapeutic activities to improve specific functional deficits. SimClinic activities are used to address visual, cognitive and physical functions of a broad range of patients (from teenager to senior citizens) with a broad range of medical conditions that affect function.
SimClinic simulators are valuable tools for helping therapists exercize and measure visual and perceptual abilities such as:
- Visual Perception
- Visual information processing (speed and accuracy)
- Visual detection/discrimination
- Spatial relations
- Visual Neglect
- Acuity (static and dynamic)
- Contrast sensitivity
- Pursuits and tracking
- Visual search, scanning and selective glances
- Visual Field/cuts
Our simulators are also widely used by therapists to help assess and treat cognitive issues like...
- Attention (including divided and selective)
- Concentration, vigilance, mindfulness
- Speed of information processing
- Detection, identification
- Decision making
- Planning and anticipatory thinking
- Impulse control, initiation
- Working memory, sequential memory, visual memory
SimClinic simulators provide therapists with tools to help assess and treat motor control issues as well including:
- Range of motion
- Strength and endurance
- Hand/foot placement
- Quick hand/foot movements
- Sensory functions - touch, proprioception, pressure
- Visual-motor integration, reaction to stimulus
- Gross and fine motor control
- Foot movement/plantar flexion
- Regulation of physical input
Many medical conditions can have profound functional implications for patients’ daily lives. Below is a partial list of conditions that may have functional affects that SimClinic tools can help identify and in many cases help rehabilitate:
- Brain injury
- Spinal chord injury
- Autism spectrum disorder/Asberger's
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Spina Bifida
- Parkinson's Disease
- Other neurological disorders
- Orthopedic injuries
- Fractures, joint replacement, arthritis, limb loss
- Mild cognitive impairment
- And many others...
SimClinic allows us to keep moving our research and clinical work forward, opening new doors, and doing new things. It's a valuable tool that merits broad adoption and application.
