The Life/form® GERi™/KERi™ Optional Edema Foot with Deep Tissue Injury adds realistic foot care to your education of the procedures of patient assessment, including observation of swelling of the foot. Edema simulation is practiced by pressing on the surface of the skin. The foot has lifelike simulated tissue pads to demonstrate Stages 1+ through 4+. A non-pitting stage of edema known as brawny edema is also simulated.
Using the interchangeable tissue pads, pressing on the surface of the skin may leave an indentation that does not rebound immediately when pressure is released, or it may not indent under pressure. There is also a Deep Tissue Injury present on the heal. The Optional Edema Foot can easily attach to any GERi or KERi Patient Care Manikin. Included with the foot are five interchangeable pads representing one non-pitting stage and four pitting stages of edema, and an instruction key card. Five-year warranty.
