Shorten the Path to Ultrasound-Guided Needle Tip Placement Mastery
The Regional Anesthesia Series is a high-tech, safe and realistic simulated learning experience. It’s embedded with patented, SmarTissue™ technology that gives learners important feedback during a graduated learning program —from tissue pad to simulated patient body form.
The Regional Anesthesia Femoral Trainer with SmarTissue allows skills practice for femoral nerve blocks with ultrasound compatible tissue. This trainer allows ultrasound practice with visualization of the most clinically relevant femoral anatomy and needle tip to ensure proper manipulation, placement, and proximity to the nerves. The trainer consists of a body form and replaceable tissue, each embedded with SmarTissue technology, allowing the system to connect with any PC to provide needle-to-nerve visuals and audio verification of proper technique.
