To ensure safe patient examinations, simulated ultrasound practice comes into its own when teaching invasive transvaginal (TV) scanning procedures.

Providing a comprehensive and fully supportive self-directed educational experience, ScanTrainer helps trainees build confidence in this hard-to-learn skill and allows them to demonstrate the required levels of competence prior to scanning real patients.

key features of scantrainer transvaginal simulator
Real-feel haptic technology

The real-feel transvaginal haptic uses force feedback technology to replicate the ‘feel’ of what it is like to scan a real patient. The endo-cavity haptic will track the movement of the probe to measure a trainees’ performance and technique and then provide feedback.

ScanTrainer Equipment
Real patient scans

Full anatomy real patient scans replicate what a student would see on a real ultrasound machine concurrent with ALL planes movement with the probe haptic. Doppler functions allow students to practice taking measurements.

Learning Management System

The Learning Management System (LMS) is the personalised platform through which users can easily access the extensive functionality of ScanTrainer. Tutors can use the LMS to keep track of trainees’ progress and set up customised learning programs, while trainees can access their modules and track their individual progress.
