Eidolon - The Technological Body

Abstract: This article presents my creative research to date at the Scottish Centre for Simulation & Clinical Human Factors (SCSCHF), Forth Valley Royal Hospital, Larbert, Scotland. The SCSCHF is a state-of the-art professional training facility, undertaking simulation based medical education for medical students, nurses and professionals. The SCSCHF boasts a range of mid and high fidelity training manikins, embodied with physical responses, such as pulse, breath, tears, and voice, accommodated within two multi-purpose simulation suites representing clinical hospital locations, specifically medical theatre and hospital ward. These suites create an extraordinary psychological fidelity for the trainees, resulting in a profound level of conviction and commitment by participants, to the simulated scenarios they experience.
