Currently, there are many medical simulators that provide a means to train operators on various medical procedures like arterial or venous access, patient care, or simply anatomical models. There are many factors that determine the efficacy of a particular medical simulator in teaching a medical procedure. This project reports the details in developing a medical simulator for teaching arterial access at radial artery. The objective of this project was to learn the aspects of creating a model feasible for teaching this procedure. A comprehensive study was conducted evaluating the kinematics, anatomy, and physiology of the human arm. A model was produced and presented to our clients. Medical practitioners will further validate this model.
