DentalEZ Group has launched TruSim, a clinical practice simulator that allows dental students to practice dental procedures as though they are in a clinical operatory setting.
TruSim is ergonomically designed to minimize motions while promoting correct posture to eliminate common back pain and musculoskeletal disorders, according to the company. The unit can be positioned for either two- or four-handed dentistry and glides from left to right without the need for extra tools.
TruSim comes in both stationary and mobile versions with a locking base to prevent unwanted movement. The unit comes equipped with touchpad-controlled handpieces to support easy operation of various air- and electric-driven handpieces. It also has two storage compartments, or users can opt for a single door with optional locks for increased security.
TruSim has a flexible position adjustment that spans from 23 inches to 29 inches in height to accommodate students of all sizes. At 15 inches wide and 37 inches deep (27 inches stored), the simulator can be fully integrated into any Nevin workstation and stored in a downward position to save space.
