In Partnership with Cardiff University, MBI (Wales) Ltd has developed an Epidural training model with realistic feeling tissues.
Epidural training models exist but are either high fidelity or simple plastic and rubber models. However, even the highest fidelity models lack the accuracy and feel of real skin and tissues.The realism is essential for the correct feel as the needle passes from the skin towards the Epidural space.
The realism of the current model ha been assessed by consultant anaesthetists throughout its development. Feedback and subsequent modification of tissues has been undertaken resulting in a highly realistic modular system for the training of the Epidural procedure.
