SEYMOUR II WOUND CARE MODEL™
VATA Inc.’s 0910/0920 Seymour II™ Wound Care Model is the most comprehensive and realistic patient simulation model of its kind. This VATA model is molded from a 74-year-old patient and displays the following conditions: Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3 with undermining, tunneling, subcutaneous fat and slough, deep Stage 4 with exposed bone, undermining, tunneling, subcutaneous fat, eschar and slough. Also shown on this healthcare simulator: deep tissue pressure injury, unstageable, and a 5 1/2″ dehisced wound. The unique flexible, life-like material of this VATA anatomical healthcare model permits the placement of dressings for use with negative pressure wound therapy devices without leaving an adhesive residue. Wound cleansing, classification, and staging as well as the measurement of wounds can be demonstrated with the Seymour II™. A great tool for competency testing and healthcare simulation!

- Additional Details
The 0910/0920 Seymour II™ Wound Care Model is the most comprehensive healthcare simulation model of its kind. Molded from a 74-year-old patient, it looks and feels like the real thing. This VATA model displays the following pressure injuries (per NPUAP 2016 – National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel): Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3 with undermining, tunneling, subcutaneous fat and slough, deep Stage 4 with exposed bone with osteomyelitis, undermining, tunneling, subcutaneous fat, eschar and slough. Also shown on this VATA model are a DTPI (Deep Tissue Pressure Injury), unstageable full eschar/slough wound, and a 5 ½” dehisced wound.
Great care has been taken to hand paint each wound just as you would see it on a patient for the most life-like patient training scenario.
Wound assessment has become critical to the operation of health agencies, as inaccurate wound assessment can misdirect the plan of care, affect reimbursement, cause inaccurate reporting of patient outcomes and the appearance of potential adverse events. Seymour II™ is an effective tool for educating all healthcare professionals and patients in the identification and staging of wounds and their probable etiologies. Once the different etiologies are understood, they can be discussed and treatment plans devised that will deliver optimized patient care.
Seymour II™ is also an excellent visual aid for educating those who cannot read well enough to understand basic health care information, allowing them to see what can occur without proper care. Routine cleansing and dressing changes can be taught and practiced on all the wounds by healthcare providers, patients, families, and caregivers.
Seymour II™ is made of a life-like material that permits the application and easy removal of dressings, without leaving an adhesive residue. The Stage 3 and Stage 4 are positioned so that a “bridging” dressing for use with a vacuum assisted closure and negative pressure wound therapy devices can be demonstrated and practiced.
The Seymour patient simulation model makes it possible to visualize and understand the differences in wounds. This wound care model is a great tool for training, competency testing, skills assessment, dressing techniques and use of negative pressure wound therapy devices!

WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH A NEW SEYMOUR II™? Seymour II™ is an anatomically correct wound care model, molded from a 74-year old patient. Seymour II™ displays the following conditions and pressure ulcers: Stage I, Stage II, Stage III with subcutaneous fat, undermining, tracking, slough, granulation tissue, a deep sacral Stage IV with eschar, subcutaneous fat, undermining, tracking, and exposed bone with osteomyelitis. Also shown are a suspected DTI (Deep Tissue Injury), an unstageable full eschar/slough wound, and a 5 1/2″ dehisced wound. The model also comes with an identification sheet with labeled and numbered wounds.
HOW WILL I BE ABLE TO IDENTIFY THE PRESSURE ULCERS? Each model comes with an identification sheet with labeled and numbered wounds.
HOW WOULD WE USE THIS MODEL? Wound assessment has become critical as inaccurate wound assessment can misdirect the plan of care, affect reimbursement, cause inaccurate reporting of patient outcomes and the appearance of potential adverse events. This model is an effective tool for educating all healthcare professionals and patients in the identification and staging of wounds and their probable etiologies. Seymour II™ is also an excellent visual aid for educating those who cannot read well enough to understand basic healthcare information, allowing them to see what can occur without proper care. Routine measuring, cleansing and dressing changes can be taught and practiced on all the wounds by healthcare providers, patients, families and caregivers.
IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD CONSIDER ORDERING FOR SEYMOUR II™? If you plan to transport the model from one location to another, you may want to purchase 0901 Optional Carrying Case made of a durable, zippered, padded fabric, with carrying handles, shoulder strap and pockets in the top lid to store supplies.
WILL DRESSINGS STICK TO SEYMOUR II™? Yes, we have developed material that is used in the manufacturing of Seymour II™ that allows dressings to stick well enough for demonstration purposes, but not stick so aggressively that they are difficult to remove. Dressings should not be left on for prolonged periods of time or overnight. All Seymour II™ models shipped after May 2009 are manufactured with this new material. Our earlier models were not made of this material.
WHAT DO I USE TO CLEAN THE MODEL? You can use soap and water to clean the surface of the model. Alcohol can also be used, but should not be used on the “shiny” wound surfaces to help retain the realistic appearance of these wounds. Caution: Pen and ink can stain the model.
HOW DO I REMOVE RESIDUAL ADHESIVE? You can use any adhesive remover normally used on a patient to remove residual adhesive. If there is a large amount of older adhesive on the model, you can soak anon-linting cloth and place it on the adhesive residue as the cloth will keep the adhesive remover in contact with the residue. You can periodically remove the cloth and wipe off as much of the adhesive residue that will come off. Repeat this process until all the adhesive residue has been removed and wipe with alcohol.
ARE REPLACEMENT PARTS AVAILABLE? There are no replacement parts for this model.
IS THIS MODEL AVAILABLE IN A DARKLY PIGMENTED COLOR? Yes, 0920 Seymour II™ Wound Care Model is the product number for this model in a darkly pigmented color.
CAN SEYMOUR II™ BE USED TO DEMONSTRATE THE USE OF NEGATIVE PRESSURE WOUND THERAPY? Yes, there was a revision made to Seymour II™s that were shipped after May 2009 to improve the ability to get a good seal with negative pressure wound therapy dressings.
IS THIS MODEL LATEX FREE? Yes.
