Lifecast Body Simulation

Lifecast Body Simulation specializes in realistic and anatomically accurate simulated humans. It uses a revolutionary technology for the creation of realistic body parts and full bodies used in medical training, movies, TV, and more. Founded in the UK, they have established a presence worldwide and gained recognition for  innovative approach to simulation training.


Adult Male and Female

  • Highly accurate and lifelike representations of adult humans, designed and manufactured in the UK.

  • Based on the lifecasts and scans of real people, featuring lifelike details including replication of veins and underlying structures, hair, and precise anatomical mouths and airways for Advanced Life Support (ALS) airway management.

  • Available in a wide range of ethnicities and created with the same weight and height of an average adult, encouraging more natural handling and bringing a new level of realism to medical training.

Senior Male and Female

  • Highly accurate representations of 82-year-old male and female adult bodies, designed and manufactured in the UK.

  • Feature lifelike details such as replication of veins and underlying structures as well as hair, and include an airway and articulated mouth for airway management.

  • Available in a wide range of ethnicities and created with the same weight and height of an average senior adult, encouraging more natural handling and bringing a new level of realism to medical training.

Pre-term and Newborn Babies

  • Designed to replicate the appearance and feel of real premature and newborn babies at various stages of development.

  • Ideal for training neonatal resuscitation and procedures, featuring realistic anatomical landmarks, movement, and responses.

  • Available in a range of sizes and with different levels of detail to suit various training needs.


  • Designed to simulate various pediatric medical conditions and developmental stages.

  • Available in a range of ages, from infants to adolescents, and feature realistic anatomical details and responses.

  • Obstetric manikins for childbirth simulation.

  • Amputee manikins for training in prosthetic fitting and care.

  • Gwen the Down Syndrome Manikin:

Background: Lifecast's "Gwen" manikin is the world's first child manikin with Down syndrome. It was created based on 3D scans and casts of a real 7-year-old girl named Gwen living in the UK.


Purpose: This manikin aims to improve healthcare professionals' training and understanding of the specific medical complexities and needs of individuals with Down syndrome. It allows for simulation of various scenarios, including:

  • Assessing pain and discomfort.

  • Administering medication.

  • Communicating effectively and sensitively.

  • Practicing procedures adapted for specific anatomical features.


The Gwen manikin has been widely praised for its groundbreaking approach to inclusive medical training and raising awareness about Down syndrome.

What is a public database?

A public database is a collection of data accessible to the general public. It is characterized by timestamps for each data entry and has a self-sustaining mechanism for growth via public or community inputs.


It can contain a range of information, such as records, data, lists, statistics, and more.


Public databases are typically maintained by government agencies, research institutions, or non-profit organizations to make useful information available to anyone who needs it. These databases can be accessed through various means, such as websites, online portals, or public-access links.


community database allows users to contribute listings and keep them up-to-date.

This is the access page to the first and only public database for healthcare simulation professionals worldwide, courtesy of Healthcare Simulation Middle East. - a US 501(C)(3) non-profit organization.

A listing of vendors, consultants, podcasts, competency instruments, best practice standards, and more for the global community.


A listing of distributors in the Middle East for international vendors and the regional community.

Easy public-access forms to enrich and keep the database up-to-date.

24/7 access as an anonymous user without having to log in.

No tracking of browsing history or heat map monitoring.

QR codes for a mobile-first experience.


The public database builds upon the legacy of non-profit service to the regional and global community of healthcare simulation professionals. As a conscious decision, the vendor database has no shortcodes or trackers to monitor your usage pattern or purchase intent. The idea is to let sim centers worldwide find vendors in a safe space. And make vendors discoverable in the Middle East, many of whom may not have regional distributors pitching for them.


Program directors and sim center managers can use the competency instruments, standards, and podcast database items to onboard volunteers and staff. Access the vendor and consultant database to build budgets and make informed decisions. The database helps novice educators, center coordinators, and technicians get a 360-degree view of the healthcare simulation landscape and hit the ground running.


As a simulationist, you can enrich data and transform the public database into a community achievement. 


In the first phase, the public database is a viewable resource. Public Database 2.0 will incorporate export and download of .csv files for logged-in members.
