With Siri-like speech recognition and response, ALEX understands and responds to clinical interview questions. Questions we teach our healthcare learners to practice in simulation, “How long has that been going on?", "Are you allergic to any medications?", "Does heart disease run in your family?”.

ALEX can also ask questions we encourage patients to ask healthcare providers. Questions like: "What are the different treatment options?", "What outcome should I expect?".

ALEX is fluent in English, Spanish, French and Arabic with both male and female voice synthesis. View and debrief with a patient point-of-view experience with ALEX’s HD camera streaming live or recorded video from his right eye. Listen to ALEX’s heart, lung and bowel sounds in unprecedented quality.

ALEX is the first cloud connected simulator: operate ALEX from anywhere. Login from any internet-connected device and review sessions anytime. No instructor workstations, no additional licenses, no downloads, and no plugins. Using ALEX is easy, a streamlined experience from unboxing and setup to creating your own patient scenarios.

Body Interact is an interactive digital simulator for practice of diagnosing patients using problem-solving and clinical reasoning.

3-D virtual interactive patients present with visible signs and symptoms like pain, decreased consciousness, cyanosis, or chest movements.

Enter into dynamic dialogues with the virtual patient. Allows monitoring of vital parameters such as blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, and SpO2 in real time. Perform an initial assessment of the patient, order lab tests, perform an ECG and imaging. Perform interventions and choose from a complete selection of drugs and fluids based on the patients needs.

Scenarios address basic, intermediate and advanced clinical skills for Medicine, Nursing and EMS.

Meet ALEX, the communication-enabled manikin powered by AI.
We are excited to present Body Interact, the virtual patient for clinical problem-solving - available on a large collaborative touchscreen table or on your own computer!

Hi *|FNAME|*,

This is the third 'vendor announcement' email we have sent.

We started this newsletter (which is separate from our main Simulation Canada newsletter) for simulationists interested in occasionally hearing about announcements, news and promotions from simulation vendors.

Why are you getting this from Simulation Canada? We created this list so you can receive industry news, funneled through us, even if you are not signed up for every company's email list.

How does this work? The company with an announcement sends the information to us, we vet it, then send it out on their behalf.

How did you get on this email list? When you create an account on our website you have the option of signing up for this list; we have promoted it in our usual newsletters; or, if you work at a member organization, your name could have been given to us when it joined.

Know someone else who might want to get this? They can sign up here.


As a network we are as strong as our membership. The more people engaged, the more we can all benefit. Please pass this on to a friend or colleague and consider joining Simulation Canada.

En tant que réseau, nous sommes aussi forts que nos membres. Plus il y a de personnes impliquées, plus nous pouvons en tirer profit. Veuillez transmettre cette information à un ami ou à un collègue et envisagez de vous joindre à Simulation Canada.
