Skills and Features


  • Blue Phantom TAP Block Ultrasound Training Model is excellent for training clinicians in the psychomotor skills associated with performing ultrasound guided transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block regional anaesthesia procedures
  • Model assists users in the identification, localization, and targeting of structures utilized in performing this regional anaesthesia procedure. Model provides tactile feedback as users penetrate through the tissue layers including the cutaneous and subcutaneous tissues, external oblique muscle, internal oblique muscle, transversus abdominis muscles, and the peritoneum
  • With the goal of depositing local anaesthetic in the plane between the internal oblique and transversus abdominis muscles, users can inject simulated anaesthetic into the model repeatedly as the fluid is automatically expelled
  • Ultrasound skills include using ultrasound system controls, transducer positioning and movement, recognition of the subcutaneous tissues, external oblique muscle, internal oblique muscle, transversus abdominis muscles, and the peritoneal border, using ultrasound to target the appropriate region for depositing local anaesthetics, guiding the needle to the intended region, and visualizing the infusion of anaesthetics
  • This ultrasound phantom model is excellent for specialties including anaesthesiology, emergency medicine, surgery, surgical training programs, ultrasound training programs, simulation centres, surgical skills centres, medical education facilities, and ultrasound manufacturers for ultrasound education and demonstrations


  • Model contains the realistic external anatomy of the torso from the mid chest to the upper thigh
  • Use repeatedly for TAP block training; injected simulated anaesthetics are automatically expelled
  • Utilize traditional anatomical landmarks for blind insertion techniques, or utilize ultrasound to obtain images of anatomical structures
  • This ultrasound training model is constructed using Blue Phantom’s patented SimulexUS™ ultra-durable tissue and produces extremely realistic ultrasound images. The materials used matches the acoustic characteristics of actual human tissue so the user experiences the same quality expected from imaging patients in the clinical environment. Uncompromising quality allows clinicians to utilize the model repeatedly reducing the necessity for purchasing replacement parts
  • Model will perform well using any ultrasound imaging system configured with the appropriate transducer
  • Product dimensions:
    • L 71cm W 46cm H 43cm
    • Weight 9 Kg
