Life/form® Non-Pitting Edema Trainer

The Life/form® Non-Pitting Edema Trainer represents a not-pitting stage of edema, also known as Brawny edema, which is a very hard, fibrotic tissue that does not indent when pressed. The life-like simulated tissue feels rock hard, making pitting impossible. For comparison, the trainer also includes a Stage 3+ (6mm) pitting edema pad, which will have deep pitting and indentation which will remain for a short time when the tissue is pressed.

Skills that can be practiced:

• Assessment of stages (3+ and non-pitting)

• Assessment of depth (6mm and no depth)

• Assessment of rebound time to baseline

• Feel of non-pitting stage
