The perfect accessory to any of our Small Suture Pads, the Tensioning Base acts to hold your pad in place conforming it to a rounded surface to replicate life-like surface tension of an incision. After securing your pad to the base, once cut, the incision will “open up” allowing the student to gain realistic access to the lower muscle and fascia layers for deep suturing. The bottom of the base features a tacky rubber to prevent your Base from sliding across the table mid-suture.
Simulated Rat/Mouse Tissue
This Rat/Mouse Suture Pad is designed to mimic the first 5 layers of the abdominal wall of a rat or mouse. The layers replicate the Epidermis, Subcutaneous, first Fascia layer, Muscle, and second Fascia layer. Each layer is uniquely formulated to replicate its respective real-life tissue layer, the textures and relative body wall strength of a lab animal.
