A dad as medic

I recently found my dad’s military ring. When my father did his military duty, he was a medic, helping “the wounded” to receive medical supervision. He always had a wry sense of humour, so instead of calling himself “Medic”, he made his own title for the battlefield; “Rear Carrier of Stretchers”. I never really gave it a thought, but maybe the idea of developing the bullet hit simulator stems from him! Even if our armed forces have not been to war for hundreds of years, that is still what Medics and our Field Surgeons are training for – saving people’s lives.

Today, the bullet hit simulating unit is already used by NATO forces and armed forces in European countries. And in the US by companies like USPS when training for robbery situations. The air squib safely helps to add realism when training for realistic bullet injuries that must be attended to under high-adrenaline situations.

Never miss out on a thing!
