Life/form® Injection Belly. This trainer features a soft stomach replica and will be an invaluable tool for teaching patients. With this trainer, you can demonstrate how to properly insert and rotate the infusion set for insulin pumps while avoiding the 2" (5 cm) area around the navel, as well as for giving self-injections of many types including pen-style injections.
This trainer has a lifelike skin with what feels like real stomach tissue underneath. There is also a soft plastic backing to keep needles from going through and holes to allow the material to breathe and dry, should you choose to inject liquids. Distilled water may be injected, but the more liquid injected into the simulator, the longer it will take for complete evaporation. Actual insulin or other medications should not be used, as they may deteriorate the material.
The injection belly is considered disposable. However, with proper care and treatment, you can extend the useful life of the product for a longer period of time. Using the smallest needles possible when simulating injections and rotating the insertion points will help prolong the life of the trainer.
