Innovative Medical Products and the Center for Education, Simulation and Innovation (CESI) at Hartford Hospital have entered a cooperative relationship to share the latest ideas and technologies that support simulation-based surgical training including the development of patient positioning solutions that promote patient safety and improve patient outcomes.

CESI is a national and international simulation-based training facility located at Hartford Hospital in Connecticut. It is one of the only facilities in the United States offering a fully comprehensive range of robotic and high technology training capabilities to a wide range of medical providers from virtually every medical specialty. About 11,000 practitioners come through the center every year.

Innovative Medical Products designs and manufactures patient positioning devices for health care and sports related surgeries.

The cooperative effort will give CESI wide access to IMP’s extensive portfolio of patient-positioning devices, as well as the opportunity to work with IMP on developing positioning equipment specifically related to CESI’s simulation-based training needs. IMP, on the other hand, will be able to present itself to CESI’s broad range of clients interested in patient-positioning solutions.
