Dr. Christopher Sakezles, a scientist in Tampa, Florida, has invented a synthetic human cadaver at his SynDaver Labs. It’s made of salt, water and fiber and mimics properties of human tissue. It can even pump heated synthetic blood and can be used to simulate procedures with ventilation, insufflation and intubation.
The full-body surgical simulator is composed of every muscle, bone, vascular component and organ, so if a medical student loses one, no problem, it’s replaceable. Unlike a human cadaver, a SynDaver can last forever! It’s a good business. SynDaverLabs claims over $10 million in sales. If you want to buy a SynDaver Synthetic Human, you need to call for a price. To give you an idea, the SimCenter Package goes for $100,000.
