New Product Shipping May 2017!
The 3500 - Suture Skills Trainer was developed with the help of Dr. Michael Zenn, Director of the Human Tissue Lab at Duke University. The realistic tissue pad consists of 5 anatomically correct tissue layers:
- Subcutaneous fat
Each individual layer is identifiable and of has anatomically correct color, strength, firmness and feel. The unique materials used allow for practicing superficial, subcuticular and complex deep wound suturing and with proper tension, the suture will not “tear through”. 3500 - Suture Skills Trainer’s tissue pad moves just like real human tissue when making an incision or when suture tension is applied. Sutures can be removed and you can reuse the site numerous times.
The trainer is also supplied with a proprietary tensioning device for use with the tissue pad, so the user can adjust the distance between the two cut tissue edges. This offers the user a more realistic feel and increases the challenge when closing the tissue under varying degrees of tension.
The instruments are of a much higher quality than those generally supplied with suture models. The 3500 Suture Skills Trainer comes with everything you need:
- Needle driver
- Adson 1-2 forceps
