About Us

Since 2008, TraumaSim have been providing medically accurate products and services designed to simulate realistic wounds, injuries and medical conditions that assist in the training and assessment of medics, first responders and healthcare professionals around the globe.

The use of simulation in modern healthcare is a vast and growing industry, driven by professionals who are passionate about the quality of training students receive and their level of preparedness when entering the field.

Realism within simulation and training significantly improves student retention, improving mental resilience and the response to major trauma events, enabling the first responder to act quickly and save lives! This improved response significantly increases the chances of survival whilst greatly reducing the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) on attending personnel.

Training, once thought only suitable for our military and emergency services personnel, is now being provided to civilians in the hope to upskill and provide everyday first responders with the skills to save lives. A necessary response to the world we live in today with TraumaSim’s products and services being vital to this.

Our products are designed and manufactured in Perth, Western Australia, offering a bespoke service to develop specific wounds, injuries, medical conditions or task trainers to suit your requirements. We have worked closely with many organisations, including medical, military and emergency services, and are confident we have the know-how to bring your vision to life.

National and international military operations are an ongoing source of inspiration and we continue to assist these organisations with developing strong simulated environments, via products and services, to add realism to their training – greatly improving skills retention and resilience.

In 2019, TraumaSim Pty Ltd acquired Military Moulage Casualty Injury Simulation in the United States, a local business offering quality moulage products and training to the American Defence Force and national civilians. Originally founded by Suzanna Patterson, an Emmy Award Winning makeup artist who is a long time veteran of moulage/special makeup effects with a well known reputation in the film and television industry for her casualty simulation work and inventive expertise.

Now run by our Nola Pearce, a world leading moulage specialist who has created over 15,000 wound simulations for various military and emergency training exercises and scenarios, Trauma Simulation Group LLC was born and is now servicing our American customers, and others around the world. For more information on Military Moulage, please check out the page here: Military Moulage CIS

Built on the backbone of healthcare, nursing and first aid training, our work reflects clinical accuracy and prioritises this over special effects and theatrical or film dramatization.
