31 Aug 17. The latest innovations in military medicine to feature at DSEI. The award winning Medical Engagement Zone at Defence & Security Equipment International (DSEI) will be returning next month with new interactive features from a range of health and defence companies, and with live practical demonstrations in collaboration with the UK Defence Medical Services (DMS), and focused on the themes of Simulation, Defence Engagement and Research & Exploitation.
DSEI has built a strong relationship with DMS over the years, supporting the UK Armed Forces in its entirety, including both uniformed and civilian medical personnel working across the three services. DMS will be running demonstrations on the key themes throughout the week.
The most recent DMS Medical Director, Brigadier Tim Hodgetts, was also part of a small team of military and NHS clinicians to launch a pioneering app, citizenAID, to help soldiers and civilians deal with injuries following acts of violence, while waiting for emergency services. Visitors to the demonstrations are encouraged to download the app so that they can follow along with the DMS demonstrations, which will cover key trauma topics including:
• Role 1/Battlefield Advanced Trauma Life Support (BATLS)
• Medical Emergency Response Team (MERT)
• Centre for Defence Healthcare Engagement (CDHE)
• Prolonged Field Care (PFC)
• HearWELL Programme
More than 20 exhibitors will participate in the Medical Engagement Zone, demonstrating how military medical innovations can influence and improve civilian medicine and vice versa. There will be a wide range of exhibitors, covering everything from structural needs to key equipment. Here is a snapshot of some of the most innovative tech from the military and healthcare domains that will feature.
First time exhibitor, MDT Global Solutions, a company focused on the simulation theme of the Zone, is a world leader in the supply of simulated bodies for military, police and medical training. The company creates lifelike products which feature injury patterns that allow for realistic training events. Simulation has become a key component of special forces education around the world, and the ability to have realistic looking and feeling bodies (suitable for Medical intervention or forensic recovery and scene protection) is a key element of some of the leading training programmes worldwide.
The team provides Babies, Children and Adults. Everything is built in the film studios at Elstree in London, where the bodies have also been used for films including Rambo, Saving Private Ryan and Wonder Woman.
