UK medical equipment manufacturer Adam,Rouilly will be joining the ABHI UK Pavilion at MEDICA 2022 to showcase its new range of medical training models to support healthcare professionals.
The company – who supply a range of Anatomical Models, Anatomical Charts and Clinical Skills Simulators – will be showcasing some of its latest products, including the GlucoHand Glucometer Simulator.
The device has been developed in collaboration with Nina Godson, senior lecturer & lead for clinical skills at Coventry University, to aid understanding and teaching of blood sampling and the interpretation of glucose level data and its implications in patient treatment planning.
Also being showcased is the Cricoid Pressure Trainer, developed in collaboration with consultant anaesthetist Dr Osman Abdelatti, to help facilitate training in the application of the correct amount of cricoid pressure, which is routinely used during emergency and obstetric anaesthesia and ventilation.
A full colour digital display offers instant visualisation of the degree of cricoid pressure being applied. Feedback about how the procedure and how long the correct cricoid pressure was held is presented in a graph at the end of the session – allowing for instant discussion and debriefing.
Adam,Rouilly will also be presenting its Rectal Examination Model which has been improved in collaboration with the Spinal Injuries Association to offer additional functionality making the model more versatile and lifelike. The model now provides training in stool assessment, general rectal examination and examination of an abnormality, manual stool extraction as well as enema training and insertion of liquid rectal medication.
The company will also have several other simulators and models on display at this year’s event.
Tariq Shahab, director of sales & marketing, said: “We are delighted to be showcasing our innovative medical training models and simulators at MEDICA 2022. Our large range of products have been purposely designed and developed in direct response to customers’ requirements and through a combination of robust research and development and collaboration with leading clinicians and world-class medical institutions. Our experienced and knowledgeable team are always pleased to give advice about our products, and we look forward to joining the ABHI at this year’s show to showcase how our exciting new solutions can support the training needs of healthcare professionals worldwide.”
About 422 million people worldwide have diabetes, and effective diabetes management is now a growing part of the general skills which all clinicians must possess.
Adam,Rouilly’s GlucoHand model features a simulated glucometer device which can be pre-set by the trainer to give a low, normal, high or completely randomised blood glucose reading – allowing control for training or simulation scenarios. It also includes a realistic adult sized hand, with two refillable finger pads in the middle and ring fingers containing mock blood. Once a sample of mock blood has been successfully obtained from the fingertip and placed on the test strip, the glucometer will display the predetermined reading which must then be interpreted by the student. The model provides a cost effective and complete training solution for all aspects of blood glucose sampling for medical students, care givers and even patient education.
Studies have also shown that 95% of clinicians were unable to identify the correct amount of force required to occlude the oesophagus and that 87% were incapable of applying the correct amount of force. The Cricoid Pressure Trainer aims to enhance training utilising the device’s anatomical structures and instantaneous electronic feedback.
Adam,Rouilly will be on the ABHI UK Pavilion – Hall 16 Stand K48 at MEDICA 2022 from 14-17 November.
