The MODEL-med Lucy and her Mum Instrumental Delivery Trainer
The MODEL-med Lucy and her Mum Instrumental Delivery Trainer is designed specifically for medical practitioners to simulate the practice of instrumental delivery with vacuum.
In collaboration with world renowned expert on vacuum delivery, Professor Aldo Vacca, the MODEL-med Lucy and her Mum Instrumental Delivery Trainer has been designed to accurately simulate the tactile experience of using vacuum. It allows the clinician to concentrate on the delivery of the head.
What's the difference between Sophie and her Mum, and Lucy and her Mum?
Sophie's Mum needs to permit a whole fetus to be pushed through her birth canal. Therefore the inside of the vagina is very open and roomy with a low pelvic floor in order for the practitioner to push the fetus through successfully.
Lucy's Mum, on the other hand, has a high pelvic floor. This makes the practice of vacuum assisted delivery more realistic by allowing the vacuum cup to be pushed and held onto the fetus' head, as in real life.
The shape of Lucy's head adheres accurately to the measurements Professor Vacca has taken of numerous fetal heads over many years, so that the fontanelles are accurately placed on the moulded head, and can be easily felt.
The MODEL-med Lucy and her Mum instrumental Delivery Trainer is made of a very soft, highly elastic, and very durable material.
It is easy to clean, and following simple maintenance instructions ensures the models will last a long time.
They are also easy to repair if they are accidentally damaged.
The MODEL-med Lucy and her Mum instrumental Delivery Trainer comes with a one year warranty.
