Life/form® Micro-Preemie Simulator
Approximately 12%% or 1 out of every 8 newborns arrive prematurely. Delivery of an extremely low birth weight infant (=1,000 g) remains to be an extreme medical emergency, requiring specialized techniques and equipment. The Life/form® Micro-Preemie Simulator simulates a 25-week neonate - the smallest, most realistically proportioned pre-term infant available.
Entirely flexible, it offers training opportunities for a number of commonly performed procedures. Extraordinary realism is achieved with the preemie's pose and lack of muscle tone. It is invaluable for simulation training in the care and handling techniques for infants requiring multiple medical interventions at the limits of viability.
Perfect for NICU, emergency medical response teams, flight medics, mock code scenarios, nursing schools, medical schools, hospitals, and family education. Simple to use for simulation, it requires no specialized equipment and is compact and highly mobile.
