First BodyWorks Eve installed at NYU School of Medicine
The first BodyWorks Eve, Point of Care ultrasound (PoCUS) simulator, has been installed at NYU School of Medicine, in the simulation laboratory of the affiliated Veterans Affairs New York Harbor Healthcare System NY Campus, New York, USA.
BodyWorks Eve is an ultra-realistic female manikin-based simulator designed specifically for doctors looking to train in Point of Care Ultrasound (PoCUS) and will aid PoCUS training and teaching for medical students, residents and faculty.
Complete with over 100 real patient scans and over 10,000 pathology variations across cardiac, lung, transabdominal and pelvic ultrasound, it 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.
Dr. Brian Kaufman, Professor of Medicine, Anesthesiology, Neurology and Neurosurgery and Director of the simulation laboratory at the VA, commented:
“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.
‘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.”
Ian Whittaker, Chief Operating Officer, at MedaPhor, said:
“BodyWorks Eve has gained great market acceptance and customer feedback since its recent launch. NYU is the first in a long line of customers who are looking to deploy BodyWorks Eve to advance their PoCUS training capabilities and reap the educational benefits of a truly one-of-a-kind ultrasound simulator.”
