In 2013, Medusims published its first numerical medical simulator concerning the treatment and care of patients presenting with Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS). Within 4 years, this simulator was being used very widely in post-university training sessions organised by a laboratory in France and abroad: Belgium, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, South Korea, Russia, the Middle […]
In partnership with the SSA (French Armed Forces Health Service), Medusims has developed a numerical medical simulator for the initial treatment and care of war wounded – Combat Rescue Level 1 (SC1) – by soldiers out in the field.
You are a soldier. Within a platoon, you are conducting a patrol on the outskirts of a village. Your platoon then receives incoming fire: following an explosion, it is shot at. Several soldiers are wounded. You then have to group them together in a sheltered location, and provide them with first aid treatment.

Studies, awards and the Prix de l’Audace
This simulator was deployed in all of the regiments of the French Army. It is used there under the framework of basic training for soldiers, and then to maintain the soldiers’ skills over time (“top-up skills”).
To date, the simulator has been the subject of several studies.
An initial study, published in the JMIR, presented the development and publishing process for the simulator.
A second study, the results of which were published in Injury, demonstrated the educational effectiveness of this tool.
Moreover, the Senior Doctor Pierre Pasquier was awarded the Prix de l’Audace 2016 on behalf of the Armed Forces General Staff, for the co-development with Medusims of the 3D-SC1 software.
