PCS Plus: The Wearable Simulator
PCS Plus is the first cloud-connected wearable simulator with integrated simulation technology, for both entry-level manikins and human standardised patients (SP). Thanks to the unique BYOB (‘bring your own body’) approach of PCS Plus, you can get a full-featured simulation package at an extremely attainable price.
Physiology and Enhanced Realism
Dynamically customisable, realistic lung/heart/bowel sounds, blood pressure and palpable pulses in any simulation. High fidelity anterior (front) and posterior (back) auscultation at multiple sites using the unique PCS SmartScope. Realistic Korotkoff sounds for non-invasive blood pressure measurement with the PCS SmartCuff.
Wireless AV for Debriefing
Streaming and recording for live monitoring and debriefing your simulation scenarios. See and hear your simulations from any device and debrief with video integrated into the PCS user interface. Use live “push-to-talk” to communicate with the simulation participants (or just the SP), whether you are across the hallway or across town.
The most advanced Online Simulation Platform. PLUS is connected to the PCS Cloud, just like all other PCS simulators including Spark and ALEX. Control physiology from anywhere using any device with a browser. Monitor the simulation with live audio and video streaming. Content is portable across all simulation modalities. Create one patient scenario and use it in human, manikin and VR-based simulation.
With the PCS Transcribe service, PCS Plus generates a full transcript of the session using cloud-based speech recognition technology, providing support and quality assurance to both Learners and Standardised Patients. With PCS Transcribe, go beyond recall and channel focus to interpersonal communication. PCS Transcribe is an annual subscription of £1,250 + VAT.
When combined with PCS Spark, PCS Plus can be used to add healthcare communication functionality to any simulator. Using the PCS Communication Engine, simulators with PCS Plus can give scenario-specific answers to thousands of medical interviewing questions and countless variations.
