BELFAST, Ireland – SynDaver Labs’ Synthetic Human is scheduled to make its European debut at a conference in Belfast, Ireland this week, as the American company looks to expand into the European marketplace.
SynDaver Labs is scheduled to attend SESAM Belfast 2015 from June 24-26. SESAM, the Society in Europe for Simulation Applied to Medicine, is an annual medical and scientific conference that attracts exhibitors, sponsors and speakers from around the globe.
SynDaver was recently featured in April on the highly rated American television show, Shark Tank. The product has also been seen on Discovery Chanel’s MythBusters and Grey’s Anatomy on ABC.
“We’re thrilled to participate in this year’s SESAM conference,” said Dr. Christopher Sakezles, founder of SynDaver Labs. “While we’re already in Asia, South America and North America, we’re very eager to bring this technology to Europe with the continued hope that our technology will save lives.”
According to Sakezles, his company is currently the only company in the world manufacturing synthetic cadavers. All other anatomical models on the market are made from plastic or rubber, while the SynDaver Synthetic Human is made from a proprietary library of more than 100 synthetic human tissues.
The SynDaver Synthetic Human is used primarily for surgical simulation, medical training, and medical device development testing.
The model includes skin with fat and fascia planes, all bones, muscles, tendon and ligaments, fully articulating joints, a functioning respiratory system with trachea, lungs and diaphragm, complete digestive tract from esophagus to rectum, urinary tract with kidneys, gall bladder, pancreas, spleen and reproductive organs. A functioning circulatory system with heart, coronaries, aorta, vena cava and vasculature to the extremities is also included.
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.
