Breast Examination Simulators
Life/form® Advanced Breast Exam Simulator
Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women; a properly performed manual examination is an important way of detecting cancer at an early, more treatable, stage. The Life/form® Advanced Breast Exam Simulator offers unparalleled realism for teaching both clinical and self-breast examination. Unlike other simulators, tissue density actually varies within the simulated breast, just as it does in a live patient. Tumors of varying sizes (1-4 cm diameter), shapes (round, oval, irregular/stellate), and densities can be inserted by the instructor for an expanded combination of training scenarios. Tumors represent adenomas, cysts, malignant tumors, and enlarged lymph nodes. The torso is correctly positioned in the supine position and allows access to both axillae. The trainer features palpable ribs, sternum and clavicles, and enlarged lymph nodes in the axillary and subclavicular areas. Peau d’orange (“orange peel skin”) with inflammation, inverted nipple, skin dimpling, and asymmetry are also depicted on the incredibly realistic skin. The Life/form® Advanced Breast Exam Simulator has been designed for supine examination, but may also be used standing upright if desired. Training may also be done without the overlay skin. Includes a rigid underbody, right and left breast inserts, overlay skin, three tumor sets (27 lumps), nine soft lumps to represent soft breast tissue, one hard lump to represent chestwall infiltration, baby powder, hard carrying case, and instruction manual. Torso size: 14" W x 11" H x 6" D. Five-year warranty.

Life/form® Breast Examination Simulator
The most lifelike model available for teaching and practicing breast palpation techniques. Excellent model for hospitals and medical clinics to use in teaching women the proper techniques of breast examination.
Special vinyl formulations have been used to create the most lifelike look and feel possible. A unique feature of this simulator is the realistic fluid breast mass. This mass allows displacement of breast tissue under palpation almost exactly as it occurs in a live patient.
Each breast contains abnormalities. The left has a small nodule in the upper outer quadrant and a fibroadenoma in the lower inside quadrant. The right breast has a fixed lump in the upper outer quadrant, a fluid filled cyst in the lower inside quadrant, and a round lump movable discrete mass directly under the nipple.
The simulator allows women to practice all phases of breast examination in both a sitting and supine position. This lightweight simulator is designed with a concave back to allow placement against the patient for ease in demonstrating or practicing palpation techniques.
The Life/form® Breast Examination Simulator is complete with teaching guide, American Cancer Society Guide to Breast Examination, and storage box. Now also includes a neck strap (3 ft. long) and a waist strap (4 ft. long) that are adjustable and can be strapped on. Five-year warranty.

Breast Self Examination Simulaids Trainer
This Breast Self Examination (BSE) Trainer is a flesh-based product for realistic practice. You will no longer have to struggle with keeping the exam model clean because the new, nontoxic material is very stain resistant and cleans up easily with mild soap. Within the breast resides five lumps representing different disease states: cysts (fluid related), fibroadenomas (calcifications), sclerosing adenosis, or fat necrosis. www.komen.org. is a website with information pertinent to BSE. The filling is a water-based gel that emulates the natural consistency of a breast. The material is also very durable so that constant use in labs or teaching facilities won’t wear it out or tear it. Three-year warranty.
