HAND / Medical Simulator


HAND is a hand surgery simulator that it used to teach young surgeons surgical procedures such as syndactyly release and z-plasty. It covers the training of the process of planning, incising and suturing. Surgical gloves with a layer of transparent film dressing applied to simulate the layers and tension of human skin to the required level of realism. These materials are readily available in hospitals. This would not only reduce the cost of each training, but also allow younger surgeons to have more opportunities to practice unlike the conventional medical simulators for other surgeries found on the market which can be costly.
