What is VR training for EMS?

Virtual Reality (VR) training provides an environment where first responders can immerse themselves in a wide range of highly realistic medical scenarios where they can practice vital protocols and develop critical decision making skills in a risk-free environment.

Using a VR training system, paramedics, EMTs, and other first responders can train for challenging situations like multi-casualty rescue scenarios to prepare for the challenge of controlling stress levels and honing quick decision making skills.

High-Acuity Medical Training

Equipment and Experience

During training, subjects don virtual reality headsets that bring all the sights and sounds from a true immersive experience. They are able to move around in a responsive environment that looks, sounds, and feels like the real thing.

Choose Your Scenario

Virtual Reality simulations can be customized to fit the training your teams need most. There is none of the logistical complexity of planning a traditional training exercise. Instead of doing difficult trainings once or twice a year because of time and funding restrictions, training exercises are available any time your team needs them.

VR Simulated Patient Encounters Made By Physicians for Physicians

SimX offers VR simulation software that’s actively used by the US military, academic and community hospitals, and institutions around the world to train:
  • EMT’s
  • First Responders
  • Paramedics and more
  • Medics
  • Nurses
  • Physicians and more

SimX Experience Overview


  • Traditional simulations are time and resource intensive.
  • Organizers need to recruit large numbers of volunteers, who are then trained, put into costume and makeup, and staged throughout the training. These operations are expensive and hard to manage.
  • Funding in many departments is stretched thin; it can be impossible to arrange as many traditional training simulations as first responders need to keep their skills sharp.

Virtual Reality

  • VR training produces similar results in just over half the training time and with 74% less administrative personnel.
  • These trainings can be held frequently, so that first responders have the opportunity to roleplay a wide range of scenarios.
  • They can focus on the areas where they need their vital skills reinforced.
  • Trainings can be held remotely, without ever having to travel to a classroom for training or tests. This is especially helpful in situations like the current COVID-19 pandemic, when the proximity required for traditional trainings can introduce risks of its own.
  • This means a skilled and studied response when an emergency does happen. When skills are not practiced regularly, it can be hard to retain the intricacies of training. With regular practice, you have a team that is better prepared for any eventuality.
