Image TechMed Simulation and Training Centre

TechMed Simulation and Training Centre

The TechMed Centre’s simulation and training centre offers the latest state of the art simulation technology for research, development and the education of students and professionals in health care. It is used as a large high-tech and safe learning space in which the authentic professional environment is simulated. It fits our high demands for training of Technical Medicine students and other professionals, offering them numerous courses and postgraduate courses, such as: Laparoscopic or Endovascular Interventions, Advanced Life Support, Fundamentals of Ventilation. The TechMed simulation and training centre is one of the Centres of Expertise of the University of Twente. It is used as a ‘beta test site’ by the market leaders in simulation technology and, of course, several scientists of the TechMed Centre carry out their research with the help of advanced technology.

Key features:
  • Wide array of medical imaging modalities including Siemens Acuson US systems, Verasonics US system, Esaote G-scan 0.25T weight bearing MRI system
  • Dedicated pre/debriefing rooms for immediate evaluation of simulation sessions
  • Various medical skill trainers, e.g. Simbionix Bronch Mentor, GI Mentor, AngioMentor, US Mentor, LapSim
  • Fully equipped simulated operating theatre with A/V recording infrastructure
  • Fully equipped intensive care unit including various fully body patient simulators (CAE MetiMan, CAE HPS) with A/V recording infrastructure
Possible applications:
  • Additional example of applications may be found on the SmartXP website

Coronavirus pandemic

Dear TERRINet applicants and future users,

we sincerely hope that you are staying safe in these challenging times that we are facing at the moment. The current emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic has deeply changed our lives. The recent and progressive lock-down forced us to reorganize our working routines in smart working modalities and to shut down the TERRINet infrastructures. Therefore, we regret to inform you that Trans-National Access has been suspended until further notice.

However, we would like to reassure you that we will keep evaluating the proposals submitted for Trans-National Access regularly. Indeed, despite access cannot be allowed for a while, the selected users will be queued and access will take over gradually as soon as the situation will allow it. We also inform you that a special application mechanism has been settled in TERRINet to mitigate the delays that will occur due to the COVID-19.

The Open Call no. 4 is currently open: we are accepting proposals under the new mechanism called "first come, first served". Proposals are directly forwarded to the evaluation panel as soon as they are submitted. Proposals submitted closer to the deadline will be dispatched after that. The deadline for the Open Call n.4 will be on May 31, 2020.

Do not hesitate! Get this unique opportunity to be granted with fully-covered access (including travel and accommodation costs) to 15 leading European robotics labs and 100+ best robotic platforms and to get in touch with leading robotic experts. 

For any additional questions, please, contact us at info@terrinet.eu

 Let's take this time of the world calming down to plan our future. 

Stay safe.
