Task Trainers are specialized simulators or models designed to help the learner practice a specific skill. They are typically used for skills that require repetitive practice, such as IV placement, or for teaching skills that cause patient discomfort, such as intubation. These trainers help learners familiarize themselves with various procedures to develop good procedural techniques in a safe environment before they have to perform the procedure on an actual patient.

Some of our task trainers include:

  • Adult and Pediatric Vascular Access Models
  • Adult and Pediatric Venipuncture and Injection Training Arms
  • Ultrasound Guided Arterial Line Models
  • Adult and Pediatric Intubation models
  • Male and Female Catheterization Trainers
  • HARVEY (heart sounds simulator)
  • TraumaMan Systems
  • Midscapular Thoracentesis Ultrasound Training Models
  • Adult and Pediatric Lumbar Puncture Models
  • Adult and Pediatric IO Access Trainers
  • Transvaginal Ultrasound Training Model
