HOUSTON – SynDaver Labs, a manufacturer of synthetic humans, is scheduled to exhibit their SynDaver Synthetic Human, which bleeds, moves and breathes at the semi-annual American Board of Funeral Service Education Self Study Workshop in Houston, Texas on April 16.
The ABFSE is being held at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Houston. The April workshop is part of the ABFSE Annual Conference.
SynDaver’s Synthetic Human will be on display for all attendees to view at their booth.
“Every industry that works with the human body in any form can benefit from using our products,” said Dr. Chris Sakezles, founder of SynDaver Labs. “We are excited to attend this year’s workshop and are looking forward to sharing our product with such an amazing group of professionals.”
SynDaver Synthetic Humans are used primarily for surgical simulation, medical training, and medical device development testing. Similar to the human body, SynDaver’s products are made from a mixture of water, salts and synthetic fibers. The Tampa-based company has a proprietary library of more than 100 synthetic tissues.
They are used by high schools, colleges, medical schools, hospitals, funeral directors and the armed forces for a variety of applications. The system works with all known imaging equipment, including CT, MRI, fluoroscopy and ultrasound, and all known surgical systems – even those that employ energy such as lasers.
Besides medical-use applications, SynDaver has been used frequently in Hollywood productions.
The company’s products have been featured on ABC’s Shark Tank, Grey’s Anatomy, AMC’s Shipping Wars and Discovery Channel’s MythBusters. Most recently, one of SynDaver’s Synthetic Humans was featured in the CSI series finale on CBS.
