Life/form® Prostate Exam Simulator
This simulator is an indispensable model for both professionals and students. Instructors now will have the ability to teach the techniques of prostate examination without any harm or embarrassment to real patients. With this simulator, every student can now learn to detect the beginning stages of prostate cancer and increase the chances of patient survival.
There are four separate prostate glands which are supplied with the torso, representing one benign gland and three stages of prostatic carcinoma, all in varying degrees of development. Each gland can be inserted into the prostate torso to allow for realistic practice in diagnosis by rectal palpation.
STAGE A GLAND - Benign, slightly enlarged, but otherwise normal prostate gland.
STAGE B GLAND - A discrete, hard nodule is palpable in the upper right quadrant. This simulates a beginning stage of carcinoma.
STAGE C GLAND - The spread of carcinoma is demonstrated in this gland. The small nodule has increased in size and has become an external hard mass on the surface of the gland.
STAGE D GLAND - This gland is totally replaced with carcinoma. The entire gland will feel hard and irregular.
The Life/form Prostate Examination Simulator comes complete with four glands, hard carrying case, lubricant, and teaching guide. Five-year warranty.
