The Chicago Sim Centre replicates a fully equipped hospital room and is flexible enough to simulate operating, inpatient, or general practitioners rooms.

From one-way viewing and breakout rooms to client lounges and high-specification recording (such as Pan Tilt Zoom cameras) and data-capture technology, the simulation centre is said to be capable of delivering one of the most comprehensive and effective simulation study experiences in the market.

Schlesinger Clinical Research delivers data analysis and comprehensive reporting, and offers consultations and writes protocols and discussion guides for executing studies in the facility.

“This cutting-edge space for clinical and simulated-use testing empowers research teams and product engineers to dive deep into the true experience of using a product in a simulated intended use environment,” said Schlesinger’s human factors vice-president Chris Kim.

“We designed it so that insight providers and product manufacturers have a controlled environment to study their product in a realistic space to accurately determine whether it can be considered safe and effective for its intended users.

“We have already begun to leverage this space for medical device testing, harnessing our end-to-end solutions to streamline the research and testing process for our clients seeking regulatory and commercial success.”
