UF Professor Invents Life-Saving Medical Simulators

UF Professor Invents Life-Saving Medical Simulators (WCJB)

There’s a first time for everything, but if you’ve ever had a medical procedure, you might find yourself hoping it’s not the doctor’s first time with a patient.

A UF professor has helped create medical simulators so students can practice on a human-like subject before seeing you in the doctor’s office.

On this Tech Tuesday, TV20 sat down with the UF professor to learn how his technology has helped save lives.

“Every clinician…doctor, nurse…they will always have a first patient,” Samsun Lampotang, the inventor of the simulators, “Which they will do something for the first time, and, generally, you and I as patients don’t want to be that first patient.”
