How We Do It: We Tailor Methods to Find Effective Solutions

At SimTigrate, the team uses a range of tools to identify, analyze, and model current and proposed environments. We use spatial analysis, field research, and various types of simulations to come up with our solutions. Whether we are inside the lab or outside, using computers or full-scale models, it is all about creating better spaces for patients, families, and medical personnel. We collaborate with other Georgia Tech divisions, other academic institutions, governmental organizations, and industry to examine how design impacts patient outcomes.

Some of Our Methods

Researchers look at a floor plan on a computer.

Spatial Analysis

We anayze clinical spaces and care processes.
Nurses practice donning and doffing.


We reproduce real-world conditions.
SimTigrate researchers works off-site in an office.

Field Research

We collect data in the real world.
A client uses a test kitchen for people with MCI.

Functional Scenarios

We measure the use of spaces.
