Moulage Kits are also called trauma-simulation kits or casualty-simulation kits. These kits are used to stimulate a casualty-like environment to train various personnel in handling wounds and injuries in an emergency situation. Often called casualty kits, moulage kits are commonly used in simulation exercises and emergency drills conducted for the paramilitary forces and various sections of the army and the citizen groups dedicated to developing a second line of defence against medical emergencies. Moulage kits are usually adopted in special workshops conducted as a part of moulage training. It is widely believed that the contemporary range of moulage kits are at par with the best of Hollywood's offerings in terms of the make-up precision and the kind of materials that are used in making moulage simulation sets. The idea is to make the moulage course as realistic, as possible to train the personnel in handling life-saving medical operations. Most of the moulage workshops conducted for preparing civilians are held under the supervision of medics from the military and the healthcare niche to ensure that there are no actual, fatal accidents during the course' duration.

Moulage Kit Materials

The most important part of a moulage kit is the kind of material that is used for preparing the simulations. This means that the constructional material should be both realistic looking and durable apart from being undemanding in terms of usage since such workshops are often held as a part of a very tight, time-bound schedule. An excellent example of this is plexiglass that is commonly used among moulage kits. Plexiglass is a special type of glass that doesn't have sharp edges like conventional glass, when it is broken into bits. This means that it is perfectly safe for creating a training environment. However, when used with moulage materials, it is perfect for creating lacerations caused due to glass embedded within the skin. As a result, both the purposes are served-the moulage instructors are assured that a real-injury simulation can be created and there is minimal threat of a trainee harming himself, since the glass isn't really harmful.

Some usual components of moulage kits are:

Compounds for rendering a fracture-like effect

Make-up blood that is prepared from packaged blood powder and coagulants (for thickening the blood compound)

Synthetic lacerations that are used to stimulate a severe, surface injury

Simulation wax that is needed to form the base for developing a moulage injury

Various kinds of grease pains, in different shades, for creating a more graphic injury

Pumps for simulating blood oozing from injuries

Stick-on wounds and bleeding injuries prepared from skin-like vinyl compounds

Artificial bones prepared from pre-fabricated materials for simulating broken bones or bones visible through an injury site

Strap-on burn marks

Gels and special adhesive for securing the moulage materials
