Our SynAtomy basic suture pad is designed for practicing subcuticular and subcutaneous suturing, the placement of staples and surgical adhesives and subcutaneous injections.
Basic model construction employs simplified versions of our patented SynTissue brand synthetic human skin and subcutaneous fat. The skin layer is realistically textured on the surface and smooth on the subcutaneous side. It incorporates a natural wear layer of dead skin at the surface and three discrete layers (epidermis, dermis and hypodermis) that are grown independently from one another. This tissue was designed with extensive input from our medical device, hospital and military clients to exhibit realistic puncture resistance, suture holding, and electrocautery, laser scalpel and plasma knife performance.
SynTissue brand synthetic human tissue components are designed on the basis of physical tests performed on actual living tissue. Each synthetic tissue is validated (tensile modulus, abrasion resistance, penetration force, coefficient of friction, thermal conductivity, dielectric constant, etc.) under the same physical conditions as the live tissue it is designed to simulate. The resulting synthetic tissue responds to stimulus much like the real living tissue.
