The Fitzgerald Suture Kit

Suture Pad

  • Reusable—student can continue to practice by removing completed sutures and starting over: same stitch or different one
  • Differentiated layers: epidermis, dermis, subcutaneous fat, muscle
  • Each layer's thickness realistically 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
