Intramuscular Injection Simulator

Producer: Simulaids

About The Simulator
The Life/form® Intramuscular Injection Simulator is designed to provide students with the visual and tactile experience needed to learn intramuscular injection techniques. This simulator has landmarks that can be palpated so that the various injection techniques can be practised.

Unique design and construction give students the opportunity to visualize underlying structures and quickly learn proper injection procedures.

Internal Structure
As with all Life/form® replicas and simulators, the Intramuscular Injection Simulator is extremely realistic. Skin and muscle textures and bone shape and position closely resemble a live patient.

As a result, perforation of the tissue with a needle duplicates the sensation of administering an actual injection.

A simulated bony structure is embedded in the torso and represents the superior end of the femur or greater trochanter; the posterior superior and anterior superior iliac spines; and the sacrum. Bones are positioned in a way that students are able to visualize and palpate these anatomical landmarks in order to identify the gluteal injection sites.

A section of the upper, outer quadrant of the left gluteal area is cut away to allow students to visualize the underlying structures. The gluteus medius and gluteus maximus muscles, sciatic nerve, and vascular structures are clearly shown.

Some students, and even instructors, have found the realism of this simulator to be rather startling. It was intended to be just that. It will provide the kind of learning experience that helps students make the transition from the idealized classroom setting to the realities of ward duty.
