SimScreen® is a mobile screen solution for nursing and health professions simulation lab instruction.
The SimScreen SS1 Standard Simulation Panel is a cost-effective and portable two-way mirror panel that separates the nursing instructor from the student during the simulation and can also be used for in-situ simulation.
It facilitates effective observation, patient communication, and teaching during simulation while decreasing distractions for the student nurse. The SimScreen also offers space-saving advantages to the college or hospital with limited space for their teaching environment.
The SimScreen uses Mirropane commonly known as a “two-way mirror”. It is a highly reflective mirror that is partially reflective and partially transparent. The glass area is 79 cm (31″) wide by 94 cm (37″) in height. The base area has a finished white PVC type panel which is durable and easy to clean and maintain.
SimScreen panels can be combined to make an actual temporary control wall or room section. They also assist in noise reduction. All units are designed to abut each other with an aluminium flange for a larger observation area.
The units can slide into each other for easy storage.

You may think that being in the simulation lab with your students facilitates hands-on learning, but research shows that removing yourself from the room, will actually produce a more capable healthcare professional.
The presence of an instructor in the simulation room provides cues and guidance to students through body language and unintentional behaviours. This occurs subconsciously even if the instructor makes every effort to remain a neutral observer.
Students instinctively look to the instructor to determine their best course of action rather than using their own critical thinking skills. This eliminates the students’ opportunity to realize how their clinical decisions affect patient outcomes.
Our complete line of SimScreen® products is 100% mobile. The screens have also been designed to slide into each other for easy and compact storage!
The SimScreen® is a very well built and durable product that requires no maintenance or assembly!
Yes! Instructors can start with one screen and continue to grow their inventory. Panels can be combined to create a temporary control room, wall or observation window.
A standard SimScreen® is six (6) feet tall and three (3) feet wide and weighs 78 pounds. By combining a standard screen and a single corner screen you can create an observation window the size of a standard hospital bed or office desk.
We Can Do That! We can work with you to find the best fit for your facility’s needs.
The SimScreen® uses Mirropane technology commonly known as a “two-way mirror”. The screen utilizes a highly reflective mirror which is partially reflective and partially transparent. The screen is highly reflective on one side preventing the student from looking back at the instructor. From the instructor's point of view, they can observe the student without any distortion.
A one (1) year warranty is offered for all SimScreen® products.
