At the center of the makeshift emergency room is a fake moulaged victim lying on a bed, designed to represent an injured patient.
Because of the high quality prints that come with the Hop Up Displays, the fabric prints are able to capture a near life-like representation of a hospital E.R. Used in conjunction with trained educators and health specialists, the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre, with the help of GLM Displays, is able to reach out to more students than ever before.
The E.R mock up allows Chisolm and her team to quickly and easily transport, assemble and store away the display within minutes, making mobile presentations possible for students who aren’t able to spare the time or resources to take a field trip to the hospital. Students are shown what its like to experience an emergency room without leaving their own school.
“We typically have students attend the P.A.R.T.Y program at the hospital,” explains Chisholm. “But since developing a portable ‘trauma room’ with GLM Displays, we are able to provide a realistic trauma room in the high school setting, reaching more youth with these important injury prevention messages.”
With the help of GLM Displays representative, Matthew Lunser, Chisolm has turned what would normally be a traditional marketing tool into an effective educational platform.
“[Matthew Lunser from GLM Displays] has been incredibly helpful in asking the right questions to understand what it was [we were] trying to accomplish. [He] offered help with imaging and finalizing the product. It was what I wanted
