In Stitches – Suture Trainers
The technique of stitching skin back together after a wound has been practiced for many millennia, with a variety of materials used to form the suture. Wire, flex, even the tendons of animals have been used to stitch human flesh together, and after years of experimenting with what material is best, early 20th century surgeons and chemical engineers developed a synthetic thread which could be absorbed by the body. Suturing is simply fascinating, and a vital skill for medical professionals to have. One of the best ways to gain hands on experience is with a suture trainer, such as those in our collection.
One great option for practicing sutures is the Suture Practice Kit. This set includes a suture pad that replicates the texture of skin, plus a carry case, needle, scissors, forceps, scalpel, and nylon suture. The variety of materials included makes it a great all in one kit for those training in medical professions. The suture pad can be replaced, and is suitable for repeated use. Surgical glue and stapling can also be used with this set.
A more advanced set is the Suture Arm and Leg Set from Nasco. This set features realistic limbs, and over 100 cuts can be made on each of the trainers. Each cut can be sutured many times, too, making this a fantastic set for repeated suture practice.
