SynDaver Labs designs and builds the world’s most sophisticated synthetic human tissues and body parts. SynDaver Synthetic Human bleeds, breathes, and employs hundreds of replaceable muscles, bones, organs, veins and arteries – all made from materials that mimic the mechanical, thermal, and physicochemical properties of live tissue. This validated technology is used to replace live animals, cadavers and even human patients in medical device studies, clinical training and surgical simulation.
SynDaver Surgical Model
The SynDaver Surgical Model is the most elaborate and sophisticated full-body surgical simulator ever devised, featuring complete and functional musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, endocrine and nervous systems based on CT, MRI and ultrasound images of actual patients. An exquisite 3D jigsaw puzzle; every muscle, bone, vascular component and organ is removable and replaceable. Made from water, salts and fibers, the individual organ tissues have been designed over the last two decades to mimic to mechanical, dielectric and physico-chemical properties of live tissue. Quite simply, the SSH is the apex of hands-on surgical simulation.
The SSH has been used in a wide variety of procedures including laparoscopic surgery with insufflation, coronary stent placement with fluoroscopy, chest tube placement, cricothyroidotomy, central line placement with ultrasound, septal defect repair, bowel resection, ECMO, tracheotomy infusion port placement, appendectomy, carotid endarterectomy, embolectomy, craniotomy, angioplasty, femoral cutdown with closure device and many more.
