Health Cuts Ltd specializes in creating highly sophisticated simulation models for medical training and assessment. The models we design and make are extremely realistic and interactive, allowing users to engage much deeper into the task, thus providing trainees and professionals with a much more immersive and educational experience.
Our models are anatomically accurate, highly innovative and extremely realistic. Working only in the very latest tactile silicones and other high-end materials, our products and services range from the smallest of wounds to full size bespoke surgical training mannequins. Previous commissions have led us to work alongside doctors and clinicians from some of the world’s leading teaching hospitals and universities to design new models and simulations to support and enhance learning with a much more modern approach, thus bridging the gap between existing training methods and the real thing.
Since opening our doors in 2009 our work within the medical training arena has been largely commission based. It’s been our privilege to work with some of the world’s leading clinicians, surgeons and medical educators to design and build countless exciting, innovative and realistic solutions for individual simulation projects. We are now extremely proud to introduce the first of our new low-cost concept ranges. Without losing any of our signature style and quality we have designed an exciting yet affordable range of captivating and interactive new products to enhance medical training for everyone, not just those with big research budgets.
Now, everyone can get their hands on a Health Cuts Ltd training model.
Someone asked recently if we were just medical edu-tainment?
We’d never heard of it either, but we loved it because that’s exactly what we are. We’ve been working in medical simulation for quite a few years now, having transferred over from the film and television industry in 2009 and as our clients are always telling us, the more realistic and immersive the experience, the more the learners learn. If medical education was a theatre production, we’d like to think we were the dress rehearsal.
If it’s fun and realistic, you’re halfway there.
A DIFFERENT APPROACH
Medical simulation isn’t a new concept, but our approach is. We believe there will always be a place in medical education for banana skins and bits of foam, but with a beautifully handcrafted model from Health Cuts Ltd you have the opportunity to offer your students something so much more engaging - regardless of whether you’re talking to trainees or advanced learners. Making models for the big screen has programmed us to make things look and feel as realistic and believable as possible.
We just can’t imagine doing things any other way.
WHY CHOOSE health cuts?
We believe realism is everything. Our knowledge and understanding of all things medical, our background and our attention to detail is what sets us apart from the competition. When you assemble a team of surgeons for a simulation exercise and give them something realistic to play with, everyone in the room engages - disbelief is temporarily suspended and the whole experience suddenly becomes fully immersive. The models we create have not only been used to train medical students all over the world, but also highly qualified surgeons just needing to further perfect an element of their craft. And for that, you need something much more tactile and engaging.
WHO ARE health cuts?
Health Cuts Ltd founders, Max and Izzy Campbell met in the film & television industry as special effects make-up artists and prosthetics designers, working on medical tv shows such as BBC Holby City and Casualty making models to simulate real operations, traumatic injuries and medical conditions on actors. Max would often hear the on-set medical advisors saying “if only we had this kind of thing for our training”. After leaving the BBC, they worked on several large films before seizing the opportunity to further develop their interests by entering into the medical arena in 2009.
Working in film & television was an amazing experience which has ultimately taken them to where they are now. They both feel massively privileged to have worked with some of the world’s leading medical practitioners over the last ten years and take huge pride in knowing that the models they now create are contributing towards training medical students and doctors.
Based in the UK with their two children, Max and Izzy (also an A&E nurse) manage the business from their purpose-built studio in West London with a small team of dedicated professionals.
We have now launched a brand new and ever expanding range of low-cost surgical and clinical training and assessment production models, available to purchase through our website. We have many more designs and product ranges in the pipeline and look forward to introducing these to you as they become available. If you would like to be the first to know when another one of our products has been released or feel like suggesting any models we should develop next, then please let us know.
