The Ostomy Pouching Trainer™ helps train and educate staff and patients on various stomas, complications, bagging, and general care. The model comes with four different stomas that can be placed in four different locations allowing numerous training scenarios. Each stoma can have either simulated urine or stool discharge to further increase the realism.
The Ostomy Pouching Trainer™ includes the following features:
4 stoma placement locations
4 different stomas
Completely reversible and rotatable
Use with simulated stool and urine for a realistic training experience
Velcro waist straps allow this trainer to be worn to practice pouching technique
The Ostomy Pouching Trainer™ helps prepare patients, their families, and healthcare professionals for this life-changing event, improving their initial exposure and their future quality of life. The Ostomy Pouching Trainer™ will facilitate the practice of proper pouching techniques to maintain healthy skin while developing good hand-eye coordination. Pre-operative teaching allows patients and their families to begin learning about ostomies prior to surgery when they are less distracted—reducing anxiety. They can practice using four different stomas:
Urostomy with Stents
Loop Stoma (you provide the bridge)
With the Ostomy Pouching Trainer™, each of these stomas can have simulated stool or urine output and can be placed in four different locations:
Standard healthy skin
Flush placement with folds and mucocutaneous separation
Patients and healthcare staff can grasp, in a realistic, life-sized model, what they may have had difficulty understanding from pictures, especially in those cases where language or comprehension may be an obstacle. Seeing the stomas and visualizing the location and function of the various types, including the discharge from them, is essential to learning. Proper teaching helps increase patients’ understanding of their condition and the adjustments which may be necessary for achieving a satisfactory standard of life with their new stoma.
