Tissue Block for Suture Practice

Traditionally, medical students have practiced suturing on tissue mimics made from silicone or polyurethane elastomers. These materials lack the lubriscious nature of natural tissue. Using our proprietary hydrogel technology, CPG has developed single and multi-layer tissue blocks that contain a similar amount of water as natural tissue, and hence provides a similar feel as natural tissue. These blocks can be formed into a variety of sizes, and are re-usable. Contact Cambridge Polymer Group for more information.
