Public Profile

With some of the firm's personnel serving as consultants for standardized patient programs, Avkin Inc is structured around manufacture of wearable devices for use in healthcare simulations. Founded by a nurse educator, the firm provides simulation solutions - combining the best of high-fidelity mannequins and the realism of standardized patients for the most authentic simulation experience possible. A core premise of management is that the key to success in patient-centered care is (1) practitioner training provided through realistic simulations and (2) that human interaction is irreplaceable in healthcare education. Avkin's sensor-enabled, wearable technology uses haptic feedback to enable a new class of simulation training that teaches both the art (soft skills) and science (hard skills) required from practitioners like doctors, nurses, and first responders.
