- Brought to you by the Virtual Heroes division of ARA, Combat Medic uses a 3D, collaborative virtual world accessible from any internet-connected computer. The trainer was build using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine and Virtual Heroes’ extensible GO Platform.
- The Combat Medic environment includes learning modules customized to medic needs. Specifically, the simulation addresses the top three injuries associated with preventable deaths on the modern battlefield: hemorrhage, airway management, and tension pneumothorax. Combat Medic also supports a multi-player mode for a more collaborative experience.
