Your students can learn better and gain more experience with manikins that are as realistic & anatomically accurate as possible. This should be the case even with more intricate equipment such as airway trainers. Yet two anesthesiologists realized that for too long, health professionals have had to tolerate unrealistic models for practicing skills training. So in 2003 they established TruCorp & dedicated themselves to designing, engineering & producing realistic & anatomically accurate training manikins for a wide variety of applications.
With over 10 years’ experience, TruCorp is leading the market in providing realistic and durable training manikins. A commitment to innovation, design and development has allowed TruCorp to provide a wide range of anatomically correct airway management, emergency skills and surgical skill trainers.
» Accuracy & Realism
To ensure maximum realism, the Trucorp airway, which is vitally important and integral to all TruCorps product ranges and separates them from their competitors, has been created from CT DICOM data. This has been collected from real life pediatric, child and adult people. The airway is molded in one piece and put through a sophisticated dipping process. For realism during fiber optic examinations the airway provides an accurate realization of the internal anatomical features.
The fully assembled unit is manufactured from a polymer compound which gives positive tactile feedback during and after correct placement of an airway device.
The realistic jaw assembly provides a full range of jaw and mouth movements and the innovated neck design allows realistic neck articulations ranging from extension to flexion.
The tongue on each of the models has a realistic shape and texture which responds as it would in real life and can be inflated to variable sizes to simulate different swollen tongue scenarios.
Trucorp’s “real feel” skin covering provides a more realistic training experience.
TruCorp’s manikins feature high technical properties to withstand continuous and repeated use. The airway has been accredited mechanical testing for over 20,000 intubation cycles without fail, emphasizing the products durability. The “real feel” skin provides a very durable and highly elastic material to ensure repeated use. The materials used in the construction of the models combine a high level performance with ease of portability. This includes Trucorp’s well known integrated carbon fiber effect base which gives both strength and durability. All models are provided with a lightweight but durable black carrier case.
