Avkin designs, manufactures, and, sells wearable technology and related services to hospitals and universities to help address—through better and more effective education—the problems of developing clinician thinking skills, improving adherence to best practices, reducing nurse attrition, reducing hospital-acquired infections, and improving patient satisfaction and HCAHPS scores.

Avkin is in the process of consideration for their WBENC.

Founded in 2016 by a globally known University of Delaware health science educator and former ER nurse, Amy Cowperthwait, Avkin revolutionizes healthcare simulation education through the convergence of engineering, IT and human feedback. The company’s first product, Avtrach, is rapidly gaining traction in the healthcare simulation market as an intuitive, must-have resource in simulation centers that delivers a compelling ROI.

The company’s first product, Avtrach, is rapidly gaining traction in the healthcare simulation market as an intuitive, must-have resource in simulation centers that delivers a compelling ROI. Avtrach is a portable, sensor-enabled, app-controlled wearable chest overlay for use by a human actor. The technology uses haptic feedback to enable a new class of simulation training, teaching both the art (soft skills) and science
(hard skills) required of healthcare practitioners. Avkin’s transformational technology has demonstrated the following results in a recently published clinical study. Learners who trained with Avkin devices demonstrated a:
4x improvement in communication
6x improvement in patient safety
8x technique self-correction
when compared to peers learning on conventional high-fidelity manikins.
