Company Description

Nasco Healthcare- We don’t make training equipment, we prepare people so they can change lives. Nasco Healthcare combines over 125 years of medical and EMS education experience between LifeForm® and Simulaids training products. We offer the widest variety of training equipment in the industry, from skills trainers to hi-fidelity patient simulation systems. Nasco Healthcare is never satisfied, always looking for better ways to train people who impact lives daily. We know the people using our training equipment face increasing challenges and our mission is to provide the tools they need to train with to meet those challenges. Simulaids began producing trauma moulage products in the town of Woodstock in 1963. The first order was received and we were on our way. Simulaids’ moulages were the first commercially available wounds for EMS practice. Since our formation, we have led the industry with many firsts which include: “Sim” in our name, CPR Baby manikins, Fire and Water Rescue Manikins, intubation heads manufactured of silicone, hand held Personal Data Assistants for controlling patient simulators, and new silicone moulages offering realistic details and a lifelike feel. Simulaids is proud to currently offer patient simulators controlled by the iPad.
