This suturing practice kit includes a realistic suture tissue pad which consists of 5 anatomically correct tissue layers:

  • Epidermis
  • Dermis
  • Subcutaneous fat
  • Fascia
  • Muscle

Each individual layer of simulated tissue is identifiable and has anatomically correct color, strength, firmness, and feel. The unique materials used in VATA’s suture trainer allow for practicing superficial, subcuticular, and complex deep wound suturing and with proper tension, the suture will not “tear through”. The suture tissue pad moves just like real human tissue when making an incision or when suture tension is applied. Sutures in the suture practice skin can be removed and the suture simulation site can be reused numerous times.

The surgical suture practice kit is also supplied with a proprietary tensioning device for use with the suture tissue pad, so the user can adjust the distance between the two cut tissue edges of the simulated skin. 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 simulation kits. Learn to suture with this affordable and complete suture kit that comes with everything you need:
