The whole area of Obstetrics is a complicated and in-depth topic.

In order to facilitate appropriate practice of the stages of childbirth, our

manikin has interchangeable, anatomically-correct dilation simulators.

This allows our students to gain a greater understanding of the stages

that a delivering mother progresses through.

The manikin also features a simulated placenta and a neonate model,

including an umbilical cord.

We couple this model with Maternity Kits, which ensures that our

students get to practice delivery of a baby using the equipment

that will generally be available to them on an ambulance.

 IV Training Arm - Adult

When it comes to medication administration, it is of utmost importance

for current and future practitioners to be able to practice the safe and

effective delivery of medications.

Given the highly specialised nature of IV (Intra-Venous) Injections, we

ensure that our students are given ample opportunities to practice

getting this skill right.

Our IV Injection trainer models are Full-Arm models, allowing multiple

sites to be practiced.

These models feature:

  • Surface layer designed to replicate skin
  • Fascia layer
  • Muscle layer
  • Realistic blood vessel sizes and locations
  • "Blood Supply" containers, allowing for appropriate flashback

 

We chose the models that we use to ensure suitability for our students

and to make sure that they can be suitability cleaned between uses.

We couple these models with a variety of medications, syringes,

needles, preparation swabs and sharps disposal containers.

 IM Training Model

When it comes to medication administration, it is of utmost importance

for current and future practitioners to be able to practice the safe and

effective delivery of medications.

Given the highly specialised nature of IM (Intra-Muscular) Injections,

we ensure that our students are given ample opportunities to practice

getting this skill right.

Our IM Injection trainer models can be worn by students, so that

injections are practiced in situ, as opposed to simply being practiced

on table top models or on oranges.

These models feature:

  • Surface layer designed to replicate skin
  • Fascia layer
  • Muscle layer

We chose the models that we use to ensure suitability for our students

and to make sure that they can be suitability cleaned between uses.

We couple these models with a variety of medications, syringes,

needles, preparation swabs and sharps disposal containers.

 

 

 IO Training Leg - Infant

Our Infant Intraosseous Training Legs are designed to allow students

practice the siting and establishment of IO Access in an infant patient.

The realism of the model allows for appropriate skills to be developed

for "in the field" application.

The pad where the IO Access is established can be replaced, which

ensures that students can get a fresh "patient" on each course,

preventing the issue of students just skipping the landmarking process

and just "going straight for the previous mark".

We couple these models with a variety of medications, syringes,

needles, preparation swabs and sharps disposal containers.

 

 

Manual Handling

The safety of all personnel involved in treating patients is of paramount importance. As a result, we take our role as a Manual/Patient Handling Training Institution extremely seriously. This involves ensuring that we have a range of handling aids available so that we can make sure that our training courses are as comprehensive as possible.

 Lateral Transfer Board

We have two primary types of lateral transfer board that we use during

training courses/sessions.

These boards are designed to be bridges between two surfaces and are

low friction barriers between the patient and the surface that they are

on/going to be on.

These boards represent the most common styles in use, as well as

covering a range of patient weights.

Students get to see the difference between standard and bariatric

versions of the boards.

 Pat-Slide  

We have two types of lateral transfer board that we use during

training courses/sessions.

These slides are designed to be low friction barriers between the

patient and the surface that they are on/going to be on.

Students get to see the difference between manoeuvres carried

out with the slides and ones carried out without the slides.

 Slide Sheets

We stock a large selection of slide sheets for use during training

courses/sessions.

These sheets are designed to be low friction barriers between the

patient and the surface that they are on/going to be on.

This greatly reduces the risk of injury to the person carrying out

the manual handling, by decreasing the effort required to carry out

the manoeuvre.

 Handling Belts

We have a selection of Handling Belts, including a number of

different sizes.

These belts are designed to be adjustable, so that each belt can

cater for a large range of body shapes and weights.

The inside of the belt is designed to be a high friction surface,

ensuring that the risk of the belt slipping on the patient is greatly

reduced, if not totally eliminated.

The belt features grab handles, which allows the person carrying

out the manoeuvres to maintain a firm palmer grip.

 Patient Hoist

As part of our Patient Handling/Moving People courses, we cover

the use of Patient Hoists.

In order to facilitate this training, we have a patient hoist that allows

students to practice the general procedures involved in moving a

patient using a hoist.

 Spinal Model

When it comes to Manual Handling and Patient Handling training, it

is vital that students understand the importance of a healthy spinal

column and what can go wrong if proper back health is not maintained.

We use our spinal column model to show the variances in spinal

vertebra anatomy by comparing the different sections of the spine.

The model also shows a prolapsed disc ("Slipped Disc"), so that

students can see the difference between a healthy, functional disc

and one that has prolapsed.
