This project aims to improve the realism of medical simulation mannequins by developing an adaptable system for the skin that is capable of displaying physiological changes in the skin caused by conscious and unconscious perturbations. A design of an artificial skin is developed, which uses organic light emitting diode (OLED) displays implanted underneath the skin of a medical simulation mannequin. After performing fatigue analysis and constructing a proof of concept, it is shown that the use of strategically placed displays can realistically simulate color changes similar to the human physiology.
