KGS Announces Availability Of TraumaFX Multiple Amputation Trauma Trainer

December 16, 2009 (FinancialWire) — Kforce government Solutions, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kforce Inc. (NASDAQ: KFRC), announced the availability of TraumaFX, a line of ruggedized, tetherless training manikins engineered to deliver authentic simulations of severe trauma injuries and provide lifelike physiological response to treatment.

The product line includes a high-fidelity lower body, the Multiple Amputation Trauma Trainer (MATT) which replicates severe blast injuries. MATT can be paired with an upper body simulator, other existing training aids, or can be worn by human patient actors to provide realistic training for hemorrhage control and other critical injuries.

TraumaFX was developed with the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM), Simulation and Training Technology Center under the Severe Trauma Simulation Army Technology Objective. Engineered specifically to meet the rigorous requirements of military and civilian training needs, including care under fire, MATT is made of a specially formulated reusable synthetic tissue that delivers unparalleled realism and durability.

KGS provided a preview of TraumaFX at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC), which ran from November 30 through December 3 in Orlando, FL. At I/ITSEC, RDECOM-STTC received the 2009 Training Team award from the U.S. Army Modeling and Simulation Office for its development of the TraumaFX Multiple Amputation Trauma Trainer. In addition, TraumaFX was selected for use in culminating exercises with Special Operations soldiers. The exercises, which demonstrated the value of hemorrhage control and care under fire training, were run multiple times daily at I/ITSEC and were attended by several Army General officers, civilian officials, and members of congress.
