Limbs & Things launches Abdominal Examination Trainer


Limbs & Things is launching the new Abdominal Examination Trainer at the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) from 28th January - 1st February in Orlando, USA.

The Abdominal Examination Trainer has been designed in collaboration with clinicians to represent an anatomically accurate adult male torso, ideal for teaching and practising palpation, auscultation and percussion of abdominal or gastrointestinal examination.

It is an ideal training tool for both undergraduate and postgraduate use, including preparation and testing for OSCE’s.

The trainer includes interchangeable organs of varying sizes, as well as an integral MP3 player providing realistic sounds, allowing the differentiation between normal and abnormal pathologies.

The flexibility of the trainer allows for multiple learning scenarios, from the early states of familiarisation of the abdominal regions and underlying anatomy, through to identification of ascites and gaseous distention.

“Early demonstrations of the product have been very encouraging, with both clinicians and teachers identifying a real need for the trainer for their curriculum's” Anne Allin, Commercial Director said.

The trainer is available from January 2017, watch the product video here.
