|Lack of cadavers and fresh tissue/organ models hinders the quality of medical education; therefore, there is a need for a reliable and sustainable training medium for evergrowing number of medical students and personnel. Surgitate designs and fabricates silicone-based surgical models are engineered to simulate mechanical responses of real organs to incision, dissection, and suturing. Surgitate's product portfolio comprises skin, breast, vascular, and microsurgery models. Different suturing techniques, benign mass removal, and complicated oncoplastic surgery can be practiced on these models. Surgitate aims to improve the quality of surgical trainings via a practical, affordable, and tactile simulation platform.|
