Shoulder for Joint Injection- Palpation Guided

This session will introduce Simtegration as a learning tool that will engage learners in a new way

The Male Rectal Examination Trainer offers realistic, repeatable training in the core skill of digital rectal or PR examination.

The Standard model focuses on core rectal nursing procedures while the Advanced model allows trainees to become familiar with normal and abnormal findings and acquire key diagnostic skills.

Designed in collaboration with clinicians, the Shoulder for Joint Injection-Palpation Guided is a simple to set up trainer and companion app that combines physical practice with the guidance of technology.

It provides a repeatable teaching and training platform for shoulder injections, in the four most common sites.

Other featured products include:
