SimShirt® Auscultation System


Product: 718-3420L Category:

SimShirt® is a wearable simulator and works together with the SimScope® training stethoscope. With RFID sensor tags woven precisely into the fabric of the SimShirt®, students will auscultate at anatomically-correct locations every time, anteriorly and posteriorly. A pre-selected sound will play as soon as the SimScope® stethoscope’s chest piece is navigated onto one of anatomically correct locations on the garment.


The SimShirt® System from Cardionics enables student-to-patient interaction in clinical skill training and is a critical tool for a realistic and engaging medical education. The SimShirt® is worn by Standardized Patients so that students can auscultate and diagnose the patient independently, without instructors having to give away physiological sounds. The result is increased confidence in their skills and bedside manners.

The SimShirt® System is delivered with a compact laptop with the SimScope® software already installed. When accessing the software, educators can pick any sound from the large Cardionics auscultation library, enabling their students to actively engage in patient auscultation practice and hands-on training. With the wireless SimScope® training stethoscope, instructors will be able to instantly alter the sounds needed for their scenario directly from the laptop. If a student initiates an intervention that requires a fast change in condition, the built-in WiFi connectivity allows parameters to be altered on-the-fly.

SimShirt® is also delivered with one set of 15 RFID tag sensor patches to further expand the teaching experience. Patches can be placed on anatomically correct locations on either manikins or Standardized Patients. Each patch has a label indicating its dedicated anatomical location, to make sure the sounds are always heard from the correct location.
