Abstract

Military medical education and training often utilize theatrical makeup, or moulage, to simulate injuries or pathologies. Traditional methods of moulage application are incredibly realistic when expertly applied. However, moulage can be expensive in terms of supplies, manpower, and time. We proposed that by creating a library of illustrations for use with temporary tattoos, the overall cost of moulage could decrease with little to no impact on training goals and objectives. The development, detailed testing and plans for commercialization are outlined herein.
