Use a pair of Android or iOS devices as a simple remote controlled simulated patient monitor. Change the blood pressure, oxygen saturation or heart rate with a touch.
No WiFi in range? No problem! SimMon is built for the road and can be remote controlled via Bluetooth or peer-to-peer WiFi.
Nobody likes a complicated setup. We’re passionate about keeping SimMon simple.

SimMon is a paid app. There are no ads, no affiliate marketers, no creepy tracking. Just a simple tool for easy, mobile medical simulation. The way it should be.
SimMon is a simulated patient monitor for basic medical simulation – Dr. Jon Gatward’s MobileSim website and "Guerilla Sim. Anytime. Anywhere. Anyone." podcast does a great job of explaining mobile medical simulation.
Download the SimMon app to the two devices you want to use - using the same AppStore account on both devices enables you to download SimMon to all your devices at no additional cost.
Turn on WiFi or Bluetooth and start SimMon on both devices. On the device you are want to use as a remote, press "Use as remote control". Leave the other device at the main menu. A list of devices with SimMon apps that can be controlled will appear. Press the name of the iPad you want to use as a monitor.
The monitor appears with everything disabled. As the students attach monitoring equipment to the patient press, sat, blood pressure to activate the readings. When the three lead ECG leads are attached press on the waveform area left of the numerical readings to activate traces as well.
I would highly recommend this for any clinical educator. What a great teaching aid for Mock codes or ACLS and PALS. Very easy to use and very receptive from students. Can’t wait to see what the updates bring, this app can only get better. Their customer service is outstanding as well!!! Keep up the great work!!!
Fantastic app for a great price. Easy to use and can be controlled from second iOS device. Different wave forms available for each parameter, and prompt offline support. Well done on making a great app. Highly recommend it for anyone involved in medical/nursing education. (my kids love it too).
This is an amazing piece of software, it allowed me to do simulation for my residents without the high fidelity mannequins. […] I loved the ease of using my iPhone as a Bluetooth remote!
I teach medical simulation and resuscitation every week. Sometimes I just want to run a simple scenario without all the high fidelity expensive kit and wires. SimMon is perfect for this. It adds realism to your training but is very simple to use and can be taken anywhere in the hospital. Just place your iPad next to a patient actor or manikin and off you go. If you have another apple device link it with your monitor via bluetooth and you have a remote control. The technology has never failed and the candidates really enjoy having the simulated patient monitor screen. We often use it on Resuscitation Council (UK) courses and ALERT courses for deteriorating patient scenarios. If you have an iPad and teach regularly it is worth the investment.
