The Fitzgerald Suture Kit

Suture Pad
  • Reuseable—student can continue to practice by removing completed sutures and starting over: same stitch or different one
  • Differentiated layers: epidermiis, dermis, subcutaneous fat, muscle
  • Each layer's thickness reallistically emulates human flesh
  • Epidermis looks and feels like real human skin
  • Both epidermis and dermis will hold suture without pulling out.
  • Pre-cut with different patterns eliminating a need to cut your own "wounds" for stitching
  • Replaces messy pig's feet or chicken breasts

  • To learn proper hand technique

Forceps

  • To aid in undermiining the epidermis
