TruPICC is an adult male training arm designed for effective training in peripherally inserted central catheters and IV insertion.
This ultrasound-guided PICC line and IV placement training model develops the user’s skills associated with needle placement, guidewires and catheters using ultrasound. It’s also ideal for ultrasound manufacturers for education & demonstrations.
The upper arm anatomy features correct and realistic vascular anatomy, lifelike feel and responsiveness, and our unique self-healing TruUltra material.
Our ultrasound training models are compatible with all ultrasound machines and can be used for point-of-care ultrasound training for paramedics and ED physicians. Ultrasound and IV trainers feature our innovative TruUltra material which replicates the feel and responsiveness of human tissue and self heals overnight to withstand thousands of needle sticks before needing replacement. Reach out to one of our product specialists for additional information and purchase options.
What makes the TruUltra ultrasound material so unique?
The TruUltra material is unlike anything else in the market. It showcases a high-quality ultrasound image to provide trainees with a true-to-life ultrasound training solution. Learners will benefit from realistic visualisation of the median cubital, brachial and basilic veins, and can appreciate differentiation between the basilic vein and basilic artery.
Aside from realism, the TruUltra material is well known for its durability, and features unique self-regenerating properties to diminish the appearance of needle tracks after use.
