Synthetic fat


Medical device and instrumentation design and development usually requires testing the prototypes in a simulated environment. Interest in treatments involving patients with high fat content has led to requests for tissue models containing a large amount of simulated fat. Using their skills in custom polymer formulations, researchers at Cambridge Polymer Group have developed a simulated fat model for instrument testing and training. The fat model has a realistic feel, will not degrade, and can be prepared in a variety of shapes and thicknesses. Contact Cambridge Polymer Group for more details.
