Thank you to everyone who attended the 5th Health Care Engineering Systems Symposium and Medical Exposition on Monday, September 17, 2018. It was a successful day of introducing various simulation technologies and showcasing our very own Jump ARCHES grant award winners and their project progress. A new 2 Minute Research Pitch session was well received by all. We look forward to the collaborations that will grow from this activity! The Innovative Medical Exposition with all of the demos of new technology for the healthcare field showed just how Engineering and Medicine are intersecting to create better healthcare!
Pictures and details of the day are forthcoming to our Health Care Symposia page so be sure to visit there often! Maybe you will see your face in the crowd!
The Health Care Engineering Systems Center is excited to announce the new Jump Simulation Center Urbana is now open!

New Virtual Intubation Trainer Unveiled at the IMSH Expo
The Health Care Engineering Systems Center (HCESC) from the College of Engineering of the University of Illinois displayed their cutting edge simulators at the International Medical Simulation in Healthcare Conference (IMSH) Expo in partnership with OSF Healthcare, in Los Angeles, CA, January 13-17, 2018.
The Exhibit provided hands-on demonstrations of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) Clinical Support Systems, including a VR tracheal intubation simulator and an AR trainer for sepsis care and surgical robot set up. The Exhibit proved very successful with the booth occupied almost non-stop during the entire 3 day show.
HCESC has become the internationally recognized center for advanced simulation, specifically in the development of virtual and physical medical simulators and healthcare robotics.
As the home to Jump ARCHES $62.5 Million endowment, HCESC, in collaboration with Jump Simulation at OSF Healthcare, focuses on creating simulation and educational tools through imaging, health information technology, novel sensors and devices, and human factors engineering.
IMSH is the world’s largest conference dedicated to healthcare simulation learning, research and scholarship, offering 250 sessions in various formats, from large plenary sessions to small, interactive immersive courses. It is also considered to be the educational and networking event for the simulation world.
IMSH provided a diverse audience of 2,800+ physicians, nurses, educators, administrators, center operations directors, technology specialists and other health care providers involved in medical simulation. This event helped HCESC to reach collaborators from industry, institutions and citizen inventors to develop custom simulators leveraging the latest technologies in Artificial Intelligence, VR and AR. The goal of the HCESC partnership with Jump Simulation is to improve healthcare outcomes through advanced simulation.
