Improved Clinical Training with Standard Touch®

As a clinical trainer, you need an accurate way to communicate pressure to your learners. How firm, soft or light is perceived by each learner is very different. Use Standard Touch® to describe pressure in measurements like grams and pounds, instead of words like light and firm, to explain techniques in your program. Ensure accurate and quick understanding of pressure when teaching learners new skills. 

Educational Technology for the Health Sciences

This patented task trainer measures and reports the pressure of hands-on skills for practice and verification purposes with a focus on patient safety. Pressure feedback allows learners to use deliberate practice for skill mastery.

How to Use Standard Touch®

First, faculty uses Standard Touch® to set pressure guidelines for skills in their curriculum. Second, students use Standard Touch® to practice skills with set pressure guidelines which can be mastered and verified from anywhere.

Invented by a clinician for clinicians.
