IMSH 2019: redefining & redesigning and some Body Interact exciting new features!

Late January, Body Interact crew headed towards IMSH meeting, a scientific conference that explores the latest innovations and best practices in healthcare simulation. This year, sunny San Antonio gave us a great time and we couldn’t be happier to participate once again.

We are always looking forward to impact change in clinical education in order to improve patient safety and to advance skills of students and professionals, and one of our IMSH traditions is to bring something new to each edition of this event. This time we had several surprises: we presented a sample of our new scenarios to train first responders; we made the workshop “Simtegration: combining virtual reality with task trainers for a comprehensive Learning Experience” in partnership with Limbs&Things; and we launched the Body Interact AR (augmented reality) which was very welcomed and had many “Wow!” moments among attendees. Booth #741 was crowded all the time!

If you are feeling sad or disappointed for not attending the event, no worries. Feel free to drop us a line if you want to schedule a meeting to know more details about any of the topics mentioned above, or to schedule a demo.

Finally, a special thank you to all the IMSH staff and community. We look forward to see you in San Diego for the 2020’s edition!

Customer happiness: your words, our Body Interact

The relationship between our crew and our network of partners and clients is handled with care and respect.
It is always nice to receive the feedback of our end-users, not only to feel even more motivated but also to improve our clinical education system and/or to make changes which make more sense.

Students are perhaps some of the most enthusiastic end-users and their focus and energy when using Body Interact are truly contagious. Have you seen the feedback we received in our Instagram? (image above) It has put a smile on our face.

PS: we have many reasons to feel proud about our journey. A special thanks to all of you who give us a hand daily and who keep us moving forward despite the obstacles.


Body Interact has Nursing scenarios focusing outpatients

Body Interact is used as a teaching tool also for nursing. There are different difficulty levels, different specialties, and different health issues to diagnose and manage.

After the emergency room scenarios to train nursing learners, we have move forward to the outpatient environment. This is a very recent set for Nursing but we are sure we will increase the number of this kind of scenarios in a near future. In the meantime, you can always schedule a demo to discover more about this or about the entire Body Interact clinical education system.

Body Interact wins one of the 5 international WSA best “Learning & Education” products in 2018

2018’s edition of the World Summit Awards (WSA) has 40 Winners from 26 countries, selected across over 400 nominations from 104 United Nations member states.

Body Interact is developed by Take The Wind, whose team is extremely proud to be awarded with one of the five WSA international 2018 prizes in the category “Learning & Education” (after winning the national WSA 2018 prize for the same category). This recognition shows that Portugal’s innovation stands out among the best in the world, through the use of digital technologies that have a real impact on society.

The WSA winners 2018 will present their innovations and receive their awards at the WSA Global Congress in Cascais, Portugal (March 11-13, 2019). The agenda of the WSA Congress will be a compilation of interaction and inspiration, assembling workshops, business blind-dates and inspiring keynotes, bringing together the global and multi-stakeholder network of WSA. The Global Champions for each category will be announced during this event. Fingers crossed for Body Interact!

Take The Wind’s CEO Pedro Pinto says “It is a great honor to be recognized as one of the winners in the “Learning & Education” category. We truly believe that Body Interact is making a difference worldwide, accelerating medical and nursing education towards excellence. We feel that our work makes sense when we see that it contributes to saving lives in 4 continents.”

WSA Chairman Peter A. Bruck states “Today we are living in a completely different environment – through the mobile revolution, through the emergence of the algorithmic age – data has become a capital as much as labor, land money and machinery. Hunting for the next unicorn and better, faster, bigger technology foster the digital divide, instead of mending it. Hence, it is more important than ever to evaluate what is excellent content that really offers solutions and impact. Qualitative, local content has become the key and permanent issue. WSA presents innovation that uses ICT for social connectivity. To connect for impact.”
