TraumaMan System

Part #: TM-3180


The TraumaMan® System is an anatomical surgical manikin that is designed for students to practice a variety of surgical procedures. The TraumaMan System was evaluated and approved by the American College of Surgeons in 2001 as an alternative to live non-human models or cadavers for ATLS, the leading Trauma Training Course. The system is now used to train over 30,000 medical professionals each year. Since its release, TraumaMan has also become widely used in military courses, EMS training, and other trauma surgery simulations.

Procedure simulations include:

  • Cricothyroidotomy 
  • Chest Tube Insertion 
  • Pericardiocentesis 
  • Needle Decompression 
  • Percutaneous Tracheostomy 
  • Diagnostic Peritoneal Lavage 
  • IV Cutdown
  • Suturing, Incisions

The new Catastrophic Team Training Module allows you to perform team training during these additional procedures:

  • Lacerated Kidney
  • Nicked Aorta
  • Nicked Renal Artery

The FAST diagnostic ultrasound training extension allows you to:

  • Learn landmarks on the body used for identification of window locations for the exam
  • Read and understand the various normal and abnormal views. 
  • The FAST Module includes five patient image and video libraries for each window (two normal and three abnormal).

The TraumaMan® System is trauma manikin that is anatomically correct and is designed for students to practice several trauma surgical procedures. The System is a simulated human torso with a ventilator and four anatomically correct surgical zones and an ankle base for IV Cutdown. Its flexible design and replaceable tissues allow each student a "first cut" experience and for its incorporation into team trauma training.


  • Cricothyroidotomy simulation
  • Chest Tube Insertion simulation
  • Pericardiocentesis simulation
  • Needle Decompression simulation
  • Percutaneous Tracheostomy simulation
  • Diagnostic Peritoneal Lavage simulation
  • IV Cutdown simulation

Features and Benefits:

  • Anatomically correct surgical simulator with all the pertinent landmarks for each procedure
  • The realistic body form skin and replaceable tissues have the highest fidelity touch and dissection of any simulated tissue available today
  • Realistic, bleeding tissues add to suspension of disbelief, enhancing the simulation
  • Training with TraumaMan is systematic, so that each student gets the same learning points with more repetition than is possible with animals or cadavers
  • TraumaMan is the most flexible training platform available for advanced trauma training - it can be combined with high fidelity simulators to run scenarios in team training situations.
  • Available for purchase, rent or lease
