Colles' Fracture Reduction Trainer (Light Skin Tone)
Designed for Emergency Medicine and Orthopaedic Specialist trainees, the Limbs & Things Colles’ Fracture Reduction Trainer offers repeatable practice in fracture reduction of the wrist. It is also suitable for training junior doctors, Emergency Nurse Practitioners, staff nurses, Orthopaedic Practitioners (or Plasterer Technicians) and Health Care Assistants (HCAs).
The Colles’ Fracture Reduction Trainer represents a fractured distal fragment of the radius and enables trainees to carry out the full procedure, diagnosis through visual inspections, reduction procedure and plastering the arm.
For more accurate real-life simulations, the Colles’ trainer has an adjustable tension mechanism that allows for various levels of difficulty, making it ideal for advanced learning. The design also allows for common mistakes to occur such as a partially reduced fractures, and if the arm is not held correctly when plastered, it will pop back to the original state.
The model has been designed in collaboration with Dr Salwa Malik of Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust and Dr Yasir M. Shaukat of Surrey and Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust.
