Palpation Table - Rectal Wall.
A leg of a panty hose is used to simulate the feel of the hand in the rectum while palpating a slaughterhouse tract on the palpations table. The toe-end of the panty hose is attached to a spring on a vertical board. The upper end of the leg of the panty hose is taped to a PVC ring (diameter 15 cm) through which the palpater inserts the hand and arm.
