Karen L. Kennedy Prepares Medical Students for Success with Creation of SimAccessories

Karen KennedyAt the helm of Eriter Creations Inc., Karen L. Kennedy, Co-Owner and President of the company, works hard to invent and patent accessories for use in healthcare education. Her company offers “realistic and effective simulation [appendages] that mimic symptoms of health conditions to enhance and facilitate student and practitioner learning while eliminating the potential for harm to patients.” It was recently noted by the Journal of Emergency Medical Services that the use of human simulators has proven inventive, unproblematic, and painless for potential patients, professors, practitioners, and students, who are seeking to learn how to make medical procedures more safe and effective.

While Ms. Kennedy’s company specializes in the design and development of appendages and accessories, she has already garnered critical acclaim for breaking the mold as an inventor. The company was a first-place winner in the technical category for the best business plan for a sustainable business at the 2014 Chinook Entrepreneur Challenge.

Eriter Creations Inc. offers SimLeggings+ which simulate pitting edema, SimSleeves TM which simulate lymphedema, and a SimObesityShirt TM , which simulates adult obesity. These products have been used by nursing professors, and simulations have been put into effect with the use of these SimAccessories with medical professionals giving enthusiastic reviews about the products’ benefits.

Your help is needed today to fight the rapid spread of Ebola in West Africa.

Ebola is a highly contagious, deadly virus to which there is currently no vaccine or cure. It is very important to stop the spread, before the virus rages out of control.

Health services are overwhelmed by the outbreak, with many health workers having been infected and a large number having died. Mothers and children are unable to access much-needed health services for treatment of malaria, diarrhea, or even childbirth. Markets have closed making it difficult to access food. A large humanitarian crisis is looming.

World Vision is working urgently to protect children and their families, by educating communities about how to stop the spread of the virus, as well as providing protective equipment. But with your help we can do more. 

World Vision CanadaThrough World Vision Canada, Ms. Johnson initiates charitable causes that serve to stop the spread of disease at its core.
