Lumbar Puncture & Epidural Trainers

Safely master critical techniques for spinal epidural insertion and catheterization with Simulab’s easy-to-use, ultrasound-guided Lumbar Epidural Trainer. 

Our true-to-life simulator sits upright or in a lateral decubitus position and features the lumbar vertebrae, iliac crest, spinous process, ligamentum flavum, epidural space, and dura. The epidural procedure allows the user to enter the epidural space and insert an
epidural catheter.

The trainer supports three varieties of lifelike, ultrasound compatible replaceable tissues that mirror significant anatomical differences found in obese, geriatric, and normal patient populations. Every tissue allows users to experience variances in disc thickness and soft tissue depth on top of the vertebrae.

The trainer includes a simulated IV bag and a Normal tissue. Compatible Geriatric and Obese tissues can be purchased separately.  The trainer is also compatible with our line of Lumbar Puncture tissues. 


  • Replaceable tissue variations allow for progressive skill development of diverse patient populations
  • Highly durable replaceable tissue for repeated procedures
  • Most realistic tactile feedback on the market


  • Use ultrasound and palpation to identify landmarks
  • Practice spinal and epidural injections from insertion to full catheterization
  • Experience the presence and absence of resistance, and tapping the plunger until loss of resistance is present
  • Ability to measure and insert the catheter to the appropriate depth; remove the needle and secure
  • Practice the procedure in the left lateral decubitus or sitting position

Throughout the history of medicine, clinical learning has been based on imitating the actions of others. Medical students are expected to learn complex medical tasks by watching other clinicians perform that task. This is known as the “see one, do one” approach, or the apprenticeship model. Certainly, the “see one, do one” approach to learning will continue to have its place. In many cases, however, experts within healthcare see simulation as an alternative, or at least a stepping-stone, between classroom learning and clinical practice. This means change.
