Catheterisation and Urology
Urethral catheterisation is a medical procedure whereby a latex, polyurethane, or silicone tube known as a urinary catheter is inserted into a person’s bladder via the urethra. Catheterisation is most commonly performed to drain a person’s bladder of urine. It may also be performed to inject liquids for treatment or diagnosis of bladder conditions. Clinicians such as nurses, doctors and other medically trained professionals perform the procedure routinely throughout hospitals, medical rooms, aged care facilities, and even in the home.

Catheterisation is therefore one of the basic skills nursing and medical students must learn and practice until competency is achieved.
Mentone Educational offers a wide selection of male and female urinary catheterisation trainers for medical skill training which can be used by all clinicians. Using the clinical skill trainers, students will become familiar with the differences between male and female catheterisation, to be able to effectively practice the correct techniques in preparing, inserting, changing, and maintaining indwelling catheters.
Healthcare professionals, medical and nursing students can practise on male and female catheterisation simulators that represent different age groups- including neonatal, paediatric, and adult patient simulators.
Our range of catheterisation simulators includes: Nasco (Life/form, Simulaids), Sakamoto, 3B Scientific, Health Edco, CLA and Erler-Zimmer. In addition to teaching and practising the skill of catheterisation, these simulators allow anatomical identification and demonstration and practise of perineal care.
Healthcare professionals, medical and nursing students using our catheterisation trainers will experience the normal restrictions caused by the mucosal folds, urethra, and internal urethral sphincter as they practise this procedure. Utilisation of catheterisation trainers teaches proper positioning and movement of the simulated human organs to allow practice of correct technique. Many of our catheterisation simulators require inflation or deflation of the catheter cuff (depending on whether insertion or removal is being practised, just like in a real patient. Additionally, you will find that most of our male and female catheterisation simulators provide ‘flashback’ of artificial urine or water once the catheter has been correctly inserted into the bladder.
Male and female catheterisation simulators provide nursing and medical students the opportunity to learn and practise the procedure of catheterisation without embarrassment or discomfort to patients or students.
Our male and female catheterisation simulators are high-quality products sourced from trusted medical simulation manufacturers from around the world, including Nasco (Life/form and Simulaids), Sakamoto, CLA, 3B Scientific, Health Edco, and Erler-Zimmer.
