TruNerve Block

Regional Anesthesia Ultrasound Training Block Model

TruNerve Block is a 3-in-1 model for trainee anesthetists to develop, practice and maintain the skills necessary to use ultrasound for guiding regional anesthesia and vascular access procedures. The model features a fractured bone structure & embedded vessels allowing effective practice of routine IV cannulation and additional nerve bundles for regional anaesthesia.

This model is ideal for emergency medicine, radiology, surgical training programs, ultrasound training programs, simulation centres, surgical skills centres, medical education facilities, and ultrasound manufacturers for ultrasound education and demonstrations.

Major features and specifications:

  • Contains epidermal layer, two simulated vessels, a nerve bundle (with surrounding artery and vein), a fractured bone & fascia layers
  • Nerve bundle allows fluid entry & withdrawal for anaesthesia fluid administration
  • Positive fluid flow when vessels are accurately accessed
  • 1000+ needle incisions with self-healing/regeneration of the TruUltra material
  • Needle tracks disappear with very minimal damage to material
  • Longitudinal and transverse anatomical viewing options
  • Realistic needle tip identification and artefact
  • Weight: 1.8Kg (Ultrasound insert = 800g and product plinth = 1Kg)
  • Dimensions: 350mm x 150mm X 110mm (Ultrasound insert -160mm x 140mm x 40mm)

Medical Procedure Training:

  • Ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia
  • Ultrasound-guided vascular access
  • IV Cannulation
  • Injection of simulated anaesthetics with visual air & fluid retention possible
  • Ultrasound education & demonstrations (ideal for ultrasound manufacturers)


Practice probe positioning and movement, recognition of arterial and vein vessels and nerves in soft responsive tissue. Using ultrasound to target the vessels and nerves for ultrasound guided regional anaesthesia and vascular access procedures.

  • Surrounding vessels are used as reference points to differentiate from the nerve
  • Simulated anaesthetics can be injected into the model with visual air and fluid retention possible alongside the nerve
  • Ability to verify needle tip location and to practice the entire regional anaesthesia procedure
  • Fluids can be easily removed from the product through our self-contained innovative fluid management system so that the product can be used repeatedly for training
  • Using TruCorps’ unique ultrasound gel this creates a perfect medium to allow fluid retention and realistic muscle fluid absorption
  • This ultrasound gel can be removed upon fluid build-up easily with a syringe and new gel inserted easily
  • Once users accurately access the vessels within the model, positive fluid flow provides the user with positive feedback that they have cannulated the targeted vessel
  • Visualizing of the artery and vein laterally beside the nerve
  • High frequency linear array ultrasound probe can be used on the model


  • Allows for effective practice of intravenous cannulation
  • Colour Doppler detection of blood flow
  • Realistic flashback upon entry into the vessel
  • Two embedded vessels, small/large and shallow/deep
  • Real feel vascular ‘tenting’ upon entry into the vessel
  • Self-healing TruUltra material that leaves minimal marks and self-regeneration up to 90% within 24 hours


  • An acoustic shadow artefact in the hypoechoic region deep to a hyperechoic bone outline
  • Fracture assessment detection and diagnosing bone stress injury
