Circumcision is a surgical procedure performed to remove the loose tissue, known as the foreskin, covering the glans of the penis. This worldwide procedure is performed for health, religious, or cultural reasons shortly after birth, around puberty, or during young adulthood. The World Health Organization (WHO), the Joint United Nations Program on HIV and AIDS (UNAIDS), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) state
evidence that indicates male circumcision significantly reduces the risk of female-to-male HIV transmission by over 50%. The Life/form® Circumcision Trainers have been developed with the assistance from one of the top medical schools in Wisconsin, as well as medical professionals in South Africa and Indonesia. The trainers include the foreskin, glans penis, frenulum, meatus, and coronal groove. These trainers are made with our soft, lifelike material, which is pliable, delicate, and realistic to the touch. Medical students, physicians, and other practitioners can learn, practice, and improve realistic, hands-on skills for this delicate procedure without the worry of learning on a live patient. Practice simulating dorsal block injection, separating the inner lining of the foreskin (preputial epithelium) from its attachment to the glans, surgical removal of the foreskin, and suturing techniques. These trainers may also be used to demonstrate the procedure and practice aftercare skills to family members. Since there are different methods of circumcision, the Life/form® Circumcision Trainers have been designed for Mogen clamp method, Guillotine clamp method, Gomco clamp method, Plastibell method, dorsal slit method, forceps guided method, and sleeve circumcision.
