Mass casualty incident (MCI) simulations are very expensive regarding time, place and participants. Hence it is important to gather as much information as possible, while realizing such a simulation. At the same time it is important for the measurements not to disturb the simulation to get realistic results.
With the new technologies it is possible to gather movement information while simulating mci scenarios with very small interference with the participants of the simulation. At the same time it allows a complete replay of the scenario and objective results which could not be measured with a different method.

Intended outcomes
Getting an overview of the technologies to track movement in a mci scenario
Learn about what worked and what doesn’t so far from the presenters experiences
Develop own ideas how to use such technologies and improve the outcomes of mci simulations
