With the Life/form® Imaging Fracture Simulator, students can practice positioning skills, technical skills, and critical thinking skills.
Educators will be able to enhance hands-on training of identifying radiographic pathology with a tool that encourages students to utilise critical thinking skills.
This life-like upper extremity permits access to the fracture site in which various fracture types can be easily interchanged. Students can quickly visualise differences between a spiral fracture and a splinter fracture within minutes of taking the radiographic exposures.
Students can rotate the arm easily to place the humerus in routine and special projections common to imaging with protocols.
Exposure techniques for the simulator are in line with techniques typical to an adult humerus. Students will be able to visualise, create, and reduce bone (anterior/posterior) displacement. Imaging concepts become easy to understand as students see how changing the position and/or projection of the X-ray beam alters the perspective of the anatomy visualised.
