RealCare Shaken Baby

The devastating brain damage that occurs after just a few seconds of shaking an infant is powerfully demonstrated using this technologically-advanced infant simulator.

  • Cries inconsolably, just like real infants sometimes do.
  • When shaken, accelerometers inside the head measure the force on the brain.
  • Cries stop abruptly for all the wrong reasons.
  • Corresponding LED lights immediately show damage to specific areas of the brain in real time.

Combined with a curriculum that helps establish a plan for coping with an inconsolable baby, the Shaken Baby simulator provides critical information and a powerful demonstration.


Target Audience
Anyone who cares for an infant or trains future parents, babysitters and/or child care providers. Suitable for child abuse prevention, maternal and child health programs, and public or school health programs.
