Synthetic Human Cadavers in Medical Education
It’s not so surprising that simulation will play an increasingly important part in medical education. I covered this topic in my recent The Guide to the Future of Medicine white paper as well. As a next step, here are some synthetic human cadavers which could make medical students forget about the formaldehyde exposure in anatomy labs and replace traditional techniques in education.
“It (the synthetic cadaver) has a heart that beats and blood flows. It has a liver that can make bile, so you can imagine, procedural-wise, this is profound,” Flynn explained.
SynDaver Labs also created the world’s most sophisticated synthetic human tissues and body parts, which means medical schools and laboratories can reduce or eliminate live animals, cadavers and human patients in clinical training and surgical simulation.
