Now with new lifelike skin for the most realistic suturing practicee new and improved Life/form Episiotomy Suturing Simulators provide a realistic way for students to learn good surgical techniques. The simulator provides students with a variety of repair experiences without the constraint of time and concern for safety, which are factors with a live patient. The simulator can be used by the student in a learning lab with an instructor, or by the student individually in the clinical setting just prior to a patient experience. It is also useful as a homework teaching aid that can be signed out at night and returned the next day. In addition to being portable, the lifelike texture allows the learner to develop a “feel” for instrument handling, tension on suture, and the advantages of one method of tying knots over another. Includes an instruction booklet and is individually boxed. Five-year warranty.
