The economical Life/form® Portable IV Training Arm combines fine detail, realism, and lightweight convenience in a single trainer. This self-contained trainer is packaged in a plastic case which can be converted into a workstation. The trainer includes everything you will need to begin training and practicing IV skills.
The Life/form Portable IV Training Arm is constructed of a soft material with life-like veins in the skin surface that are visible and palpable. Veins are accessible at the antecubital fossa and along the forearm, making it possible to practice venipuncture at any of the common sites. When puncturing through the vinyl skin and veins, the skin will actually roll as you palpate the veins and the characteristic pop can be felt as the needle penetrates the vein.
This trainer is the ideal way to teach venipuncture techniques including starting IVs and introducing Over the Needle IV catheters, and a realistic flashback will be observed when the needle has been accurately inserted into the vein. This trainer is inexpensive enough so that each student can have their own arm to practice technique and skills required in their courses. Under normal use, hundreds of injections may be performed.
Please note: The skin and veins cannot be changed and trainer will eventually need to be replaced.
This trainer is available in a variety of skin tones. Please select your desired skin tone by using the drop-down window above.
Included with the trainer are two IV bags, packet of blood powder and spoon, plastic fluid supply stand, two pinch clamps, 3 cc syringe, 12 cc syringe, 12 gauge needle, a winged infusion set, and a plastic clamshell storage case. Five-year warranty.
