Army uses real-looking wounds to train medics
Wednesday - 12/8/2010, 3:48pm EST
The Army's Simulation and Training Technology Center displayed prototypes at a recent simulation and training conference.
Researchers say they are getting input from private industry and from soldiers to produce more realistic-looking body wounds. One of the more promising training tools is called the HemSim, a training simulator that teaches soldiers how to stop hemorrhages in wounds where tourniquets cannot be used.
Army researchers say they try to make the simulations as realistic as possible in order to evoke an emotional reaction in soldiers. For example, researchers actually warm the fake blood used in the simulation.
