Hello little Paul!

World's smallest premature baby simulator

A small but very special patient has moved in to the children's hospital Amsterdamer Straße in Cologne. As a donation from the Toni Kroos Foundation. And his name is Paul. In a small film, we accompanied Paul when he was moving into the children's hospital:

Paul is a training dummy for premature births, when the infants often weigh less than 1000g. The tiny man breathes and when he is not well, he cries, his breathing flattens and his little tummy may get pretty thick - depending on what he lacks. Immediate action is needed! And the doctors and their medical staff have to carry out each step in a highly concentrated manner. Inside Paul, a lot of technology is hidden, which indicates by laptop whether the team is doing exactly the right thing. The team of "SIMCharacters" with Dr. med. Jens Schwindt has developed this training doll with a lot of passion and enthusiasm over the past three years.

Paul is unique in the world. For sure there are known simulators for children and adults. But not for the smallest, most sensitive patients. Paul was introduced in "The Cave of the Lions" at the German TV station Vox. Here startups are looking for investors with new projects and ideas. Unfortunately, it did not work right there with a cooperation. But Martin Rütter, who is an active supporter of the Toni Kroos Foundation from the start and also a member of the foundation's advisory board, became aware of Paul. The dog coach and loving father did not hesitate and got up from his sofa. He wanted to buy at least one little Paul and give it to a hospital. In December, Martin contacted Prof. Dr. med. Michael Weiß, the medical director of the children's hospital, the clinic which has been supported since the start of the foundation and told him about his idea. Prof. Weiß and his team of neonatologists were enthusiastic at once. Little Paul has now moved in and has just completed the first "treatments". Everyone is fascinated by this stunningly real simulation. The medical staff and the doctors are thrilled that emergency behavior can now be trained and everyone becomes safer when dealing with these small, sensitive patients. Paul even has a cap and a romper, so he does not have to freeze.

We thank Martin very much for having enabled the Foundation to donate to the Children's Hospital this world first project -

worth about 50.000 Euros - in the field of pediatric medicine.
