MedaPhor, an intelligent ultrasound software and simulation company, installed its first BodyWorks Eve, Point of Care ultrasound (PoCUS) simulator, at NYU School of Medicine’s simulation laboratory of the affiliated Veterans Affairs New York Harbor Healthcare System New York Campus.
BodyWorks Eve is a female manikin simulator designed for doctors to train in Point of Care Ultrasound (PoCUS) and for teaching PoCUS to medical students, residents and faculty.
With more than 100 real patient scans and more than 10,000 pathology variations across cardiac, lung, transabdominal and pelvic ultrasound, the company says BodyWorks Eve is the most dynamic simulator available for ultrasound scenario training with structured educational content, based on the International Federation of Emergency Medicine (IFEM) PoCUS curriculum guidelines.
“It’s our role as a University to ensure that our medical students, residents and faculty are armed with the knowledge and practical skills needed to be the best physicians they can be as they embark on or continue their medical careers,” says Dr. Brian Kaufman, director of the simulation laboratory and professor of medicine, anesthesiology, neurology and neurosurgery. ‘Ultrasound is growing exponentially, and we are confident that integrating BodyWorks Eve into our PoCUS curriculum will enable us to deliver the best possible educational outcomes for our learners.”
