The Varix Trainer set contains 3 training models:
1. The Endoscope manipulation trainer
2. The Esophageal varix trainer
3. The Gastric Varix trainer.
Each model allows the trainee to practice specific skills needed for the endoscopic treatment of gastroesophageal varices.
The Varix Trainer set is made out of PVC-covered cardboard so that it is lightweight, moderately waterproof and affordable. The set comes packed as separate pieces in a single box.
The method of assembly and exercises you can practice with the models are shown in the instruction video clips.
You will need some additional equipment not provided in the box set. But the equipment needed is easily found in endoscopy rooms or supermarkets- and is listed in the introduction video.
We hope you find the models useful for your training! Please let us know if you have any suggestions. We would love to hear your feedback.
