Situated in Berlin, the Schallware company was founded in 2001 and it released its first ultrasound simulator in 2008 which works on the basis of real-patient clinical data. Over time we have added more features, more simulated patients and increased the intricacy of 3D representations in the areas of internal medicine, obstetrics and gynaecology as well as cardiology. With our most recent release in 2017, we have added a transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) application and virtual models of the heart, abdomen and fetus and started also new modules for pediatrics, urology, CEUS, elastography. In addition to Berlin the company runs several acquisition workplaces in Paris and Hamburg.
In September 2016 we have opened our own simulation center (SimCenter Berlin-Buch, 200qm, up to 12 simulators, 2 ultrasound devices) to offer and develop new course types, new intensive workshop ideas with access to 500 patients.
Schallware comprises software developers, 3D artists, hardware and dummy manufacturers, acquisition specialists in the field of 3D ultrasound volumes as well as ultrasound course managers. To date we have sold the Schallware simulator to 80 customers worldwide, for example to universities and simulation centres in Frankfurt, Vladivostok, Edmonton, Dubai, Stockholm, Paris, Beijing, Boston and many other places. Furthermore we have run over 300 courses using up to 10 simulators in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium and other countries. This means that over 7000 physicians have already benefited from a Schallware teaching event. Courses can be booked here.
