BME undergrads design contraceptive implant training kit for global health technicians

Contraceptive Implant Training Tool Kit
The Contraceptive Implant Training Tool Kit, showcased at Design Day 2015, provides superior training tools for non-technical clinicians to learn how to insert, and remove sub dermal contraceptive implants. An arm-like practice band, made of differing densities of silicon layers, accurately simulates the anatomical textures of skin, fat and muscle in a human arm. And, the CITT Kit includes components that can help the trainees identify the correct placement site for the sub dermal implant. It also enables the clinician to make practice incisions through replaceable silicones layers that respond more like human skin. Learn more
