The Small Suture Pads are designed to mimic the first 3-5 layers of the abdominal wall. The layers replicate the Epidermis, Subcutaneous, first Fascia layer, Muscle, and second Fascia layer. Each layer is uniquely formulated to replicate its respective real-life tissue layer, making it the most realistic model on the market. With multiple reinforcements included in the pad, there will be minimal-to-no tearing upon suturing. Training applications include, but are not limited to: Suturing, ensuring Knot Security, Burying Sutures, Mole Biopsy, Mole Removal, and Skin Reconstruction.
The Tensioning Base acts to hold your pad in place conforming it to a rounded surface to replicate life-like surface tension of an incision. After securing your pad to the base, once cut, the incision will “open up” allowing the student to gain realistic access to the lower muscle and fascia layers for deep suturing. The bottom of the base features a tacky rubber to prevent your Base from sliding across the table mid-suture.
