Game-Based Technology to Meet Demand for Improved Medical Teaching and Training
Date:5/5/2008

training issues presented by the growing healthcare professional shortage. BreakAway was selected by Dr. McDonald as the developer for Pulse!!. BreakAway will continue to work with TAMU-CC on their development efforts for Pulse!! while further developing the platform technology for wider use to meet the demands to better teach and train medical professionals.

Pulse!! is currently being tested at Yale University School of Medicine in New Haven, Conn.; The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, Md.; the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.; and the Tufts School of Medicine in Boston, Mass.

"The BreakAway agreement is a giant step for Pulse!!," said McDonald, who oversees an international project-development team of medical subject-matter experts, learning researchers and virtual-world technology specialists. "We've moved well beyond theory to the implementation of this technological advance in medical education and simulation."

In addition, the agreement grants BreakAway the rights to further develop and market the virtual learning platform and its accompanying technology portfolio, including the hardware engines, software, simulation models and developer tools that power the platform. The first application of the Pulse!! technology will be to develop a dental implant training simulation to better train dental students in decision making protocol and clinical skills needed for dental implant procedures.

For additional information on the Pulse!! Virtual Learning Platform Technology, visit the BreakAway booth at the upcoming Games For Health conference at the Baltimore Convention Center, May 8 and 9. To learn more or see what Pulse!! can do for you, contact Paul Mauritz, pmauritz@breakawayltd.com or Dr. Claudia McDonald, claudia.mcdonald@tamucc.edu.
