Rapid Response to Aid Injured Children in Conflict and Disaster Zones Globally: A Collaboration between Montreal Children's Hospital and LUMA1.

Updated: Mar 7


Amid the escalating Russian-Ukraine conflict starting in 2022, LUMA1 partnered with the Pediatric Emergency Department (PED) of Montreal Children’s Hospital to swiftly produce and launch a series of pediatric trauma and acute care simulation videos. LUMA1 actively contributes to supporting children's health and well-being globally.

The primary objective was to rapidly develop a comprehensive library of videos covering common pediatric injuries in such environments, ensuring they were accessible in native languages. These videos aimed to aid healthcare personnel and first responders in war zones in effectively treating children facing trauma.


The solution was multi-faceted. Collaborating closely, LUMA1 and the Montreal Children’s Hospital team created the videos, all of which were filmed in a surgical simulation center using iPhones. Over 30 specific videos were captured, subsequently uploaded to LUMA1, and automatically translated using LUMA1's AI-based Global Voice technology. These translations underwent a swift validation process before being narrated using LUMA1 voices.  For rapid access users can search for topics by voice or text for topics they need.

Remarkably, all videos were filmed, edited, uploaded to LUMA1, and fully translated within a mere two weeks. Following this initial effort, the videos have since been translated into five additional languages. They are freely available and in use globally.


This endeavor underscores the potential for rapid production, editing, and translation of even intricate procedural training videos, positioning LUMA1 as an ideal tool for organizations seeking agility in their operations.
