Next generation crash-test synthetic human could help Apple, Google, Tesla with driverless car safety

SAM Fionna (7)TAMPA, Fla. – As technology giants like Apple, Google and Tesla continue to develop driverless automobiles, a next generation crash-test synthetic human prototype has been developed and is being modified by SynDaver Labs in Tampa with the mission being to improve passenger safety.

SynDaver Labs has become famous for their SynDaver Synthetic Human and the SynDaver Synthetic Canine, but recently the company created a prototype Synthetic Human specifically for use in vehicle safety testing, and it is already being used by one major, but confidential, company in Detroit. Additionally, another of the nation’s largest vehicle manufacturers has also reached out to SynDaver with the intent to use SynDaver’s Synthetic Humans in their testing.

This special version of the SynDaver Synthetic Human is being used by the confidential client to monitor how the body responds to the effects of extreme vibration and noise on the heart and lungs.

The reason SynDaver is being used over conventional crash-test dummies is because SynDaver’s synthetic tissues allow sensors (such as Doppler radar) to penetrate and monitor the blood flow and lung inflation, where a plastic body would not work.

IMG_2026“This version of our Synthetic Human has a heart that actually beats, contracts and forces blood through the vasculature system in a self-contained environment,” said Dr. Christopher Sakezles, founder of SynDaver Labs. “This is just the beginning of what our Synthetic Humans can be used for, but eventually we hope all automobile manufacturers will rely on our technology to see how destructive crashes will affect the body.”

While Apple, Google and Tesla are not currently using the SynDaver Synthetic Human for their crash testing, Sakezles expects they will recognize the value of having the closest thing to a living human as their potential crash test dummies. Apple, Google, Microsoft and other tech companies do currently use SynDaver tech in other applications.

“Our Synthetic Humans can be modified to capture data around any testing protocol and specification needed,” Sakezles said. “Their state-of-the-art autonomous vehicles deserve the most technologically advanced crash test Synthetic Human, and we’re capable of providing them.”

SynDaver Labs to Launch New Wearable Surgical Trainer at Special Operations Medical Association Scientific Assembly

***Media Availability: Members of the media interested in interviewing a representative from SynDaver Labs or seeing a demonstration of the new technology should contact jpjudge@judgepr.com or 813.279.8335 to RSVP.***

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – SynDaver Labs, an advanced biotechnology company specializing in the creation of synthetic humans and animals for medical testing and training is scheduled to unveil a new wearable trainer at the Special Operations Medical Association Scientific Assembly May 21-25.

SynDaver Labs will show off the SynDaver SOF Suit, the world’s first and only wearable surgical trainer that employs realistic synthetic human tissue. The SynDaver SOF Suit weighs 30 pounds and can either be placed on a human patient simulator or be worn by a live actor to make training more realistic.

The SOF Suit (SOF stands for Special Operations Forces) training device features internal organs, vasculature, and skin that are user repairable and replaceable, and a wide variety of trauma and pathologies are also available. The suit allows for complex control of arterial and venous flow throughout the model using a wireless control.

In addition, since it is designed to be worn by an actor the suit includes complex armor to protect the wearer from surgical procedures. It can also be easily worn under military uniforms, ballistic armor and other tactical gear.

The SynDaver SOF Suit is made up of the same award-winning materials as those used in the SynDaver Synthetic Human, which are made from water, salts and fibers. These materials mimic the mechanical, physical and dielectric properties of live tissue.

“We designed this product specifically for NATO SOF troops, and unlike other simulators on the market, which are made of unrealistic silicone rubber, the SynDaver SOF Suit will allow for suspension of disbelief during field combat or civilian trauma training scenarios,” said Dr. Christopher Sakezles, founder of SynDaver Labs. “The SynDaver model also costs one-quarter of what the closest competitor costs.”

The SynDaver SOF Suit allows a wide variety of surgical procedures to be performed. These include thoracic and abdominal laparotomy and exploratory surgery, abdominal hemorrhage control with ligation, clamping or wound packing, bilateral needle chest decompression, chest tube placement, and many others.

“Wound packing, chest tube placement and needle chest decompression are all common training requirements for military members that are deployed to combat areas,” Sakezles said. “By training with this technology, service members will be better prepared to save someone’s life on the battlefield.”

Breathing bleeding synthetic body company coming to Texas

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – SynDaver Labs, a manufacturer of synthetic human and animal surgical trainers, is scheduled to attend the North American Veterinary Community’s 2017 Veterinary Innovation Summit from Apr. 28-30 at Texas A&M University.

SynDaver Augmented Reality2Throughout the three day event, representatives from SynDaver will provide demonstrations of the company’s live-tissue replacement trainers and will unveil their latest model, a virtual reality multimedia platform that incorporates both human and animal anatomy renderings.

The table-sized device works by utilizing a touch sensitive LCD surface to allow students to view and manipulate digital renderings of human and animal anatomical structures.

“We are very excited to be able to bring this technology to the North American market,” said Dr. Christopher Sakezles, founder of SynDaver Labs. “Having a device like this is a game changer for classrooms because it will allow students to learn anatomy the SynDaver way, with both our tangible and virtual models in the same space.”SynDaver Augmented Reality

Additionally, SynDaver recently delivered 15 new SynDaver Surgical Canines to the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences at Texas A&M University. The models will be used as the centerpiece of the school’s surgical training program during the 2017-18 school year and offer students a realistic alternative to live animal training.

Much like the SynDaver Synthetic Human, the SynDaver Surgical Canine is made of water, fibers and salts, similar to a real living organism and mimics live tissue. The device can breathe and bleed just like a real dog and has individual muscles, bones, and organs. Additionally, the synthetic canine can be operated on repeatedly without any risk to live animals.

Finally, SynDaver will also begin its search for a site to host a new Texas-based facility. Plans for the new facility are still underway, however the location will be used as an operations center for the company’s product refurbishment program.

Texans interested in seeing SynDaver’s products up close can do so by visiting The Health Museum at 1515 Hermann Drive in Houston, Texas.
