Surgitate produces synthetic organ models at affordable prices providing realistic feel of incision, dissection, and suturing. In the medical market, there exist anatomical models, which are utilized to teach basic operations. These models are designed to be utilized several times; thus, their high price tags are legitimized. However, surgical models that involve cutting, dissection and suturing are scarce and when they exist, their price prevents their use except in a few institutions in developed countries.
Surgitate fabricates synthetic breast models that surgeons can i) cut with scalpel and scissors, ii) sew, iii) remove a small/large volume, iv) feel malign/benign tumors, and v) manipulate the position of the nipple.
