Medical Simulation Technologies is an innovative start-up company which develops and implements medical simulators for the teaching of medical personnel.
MST was founded in 2016 following 5 years of research and development by a team composed of medical specialists and engineers, all with an academic background and passion for innovation.
Our first successful challenge was to implement the innovative transesophageal echocardiography simulator, which gives a realistic feeling of the probe operation in a patient, thanks to the technologically advanced simulator of a TEE probe and unique software based on a three-dimensional dataset obtained from computed tomography (CT) scanning of a real patient.
The key to our success is an open mind and a team of professionals, which is why our company is created from a multidisciplinary group of experts: programmers, hardware specialists and medical practitioners. We believe this gives us the advantage of innovation, quality, and a focus on practical solutions
