The Life/form® Non-Pitting Edema Trainer represents a non-pitting stage of edema, also known as brawny edema, which is a very hard, fibrotic tissue that does not indent when pressed. The life-like simulated tissue feels rock-hard, making pitting impossible. For comparison, the trainer also includes a Stage 3+ (6mm) edema pad with deep pitting that remains for a short time when the tissue is pressed. Includes two tissue pads representing a non-pitting stage and a pitting stage, insert tray, key card with cleaning/care instructions, and storage box.
Skills that can be practiced:
- Assessment of stages (3+ and non-pitting)
- Assessment of depth (6mm and no depth)
- Assessment of rebound time to baseline
- Feel of non-pitting stage
