This morning on the way in, I heard a really interesting story on NPR (naturally). It was about how a particular Army division is training for combat in Afghanistan for an incredibly important mission. They were mimicking situations they would encounter there, and in particular how to work with Afghan soldiers. The training includes setting up mock scenarios, complete with security check points and soldiers play-acting as Afghan soldiers. You can check out the full story here. I don’t think I’m doing it justice.
It was really interesting, and to hear it on the radio, it sounded real, especially, when an Afghan solider informed the commander that he is “on the verge of not doing any missions at all,” which presents a really big problem to US forces. I was intrigued and it got me thinking about what we do here at DDA. OK, so we don’t set up real-life scenarios and allow people to play through the experience, but we do offer the next best thing — virtual medical simulations.
Our advanced online simulation technology, allows users to act out a real-life situation in a virtual world. By providing a hands-on experience, you’re allowing the user to think for themselves and practice what’s been learned, so when they actually do venture into the real world, they’re much more prepared. With DDA’s full-service capabilities in website design and development, video production, custom programming, and 2D animation and 3D animation and modeling, we can create just about any simulated situation for any purpose and audience.
When you’re looking to give users a true-to-life experience, DDA’s medical simulation solutions can make it happen.
