This soft stomach replica will be an invaluable tool for teaching patients how to properly insert and rotate the infusion set for insulin pumps, avoiding the 2 in. (5 cm) area around the navel, as well as giving self-injections of many types including pen-style injections. The trainer has lifelike skin with what feels like real stomach tissue underneath. There is 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 that is injected into the simulator, the longer the time for 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 it will serve its purpose for a long period of time. Using the smallest needles possible when simulating injections and rotating the insertion points will help prolong the life of the trainer. Dimensions: 10 in. L x 6 in. W x 1-1/4 in. H. Manufactured using a quality management system certified as being in conformity with ISO 9001.
