A Dry Lab Model for Off the Job Training
Th new medical specialist system introduced in 2018 requires 30 hours of off the job training to obtain certification to become a cardiovascular surgeon. Off the job training qualifies as dry lab training time. Our heart model is incredibly faithful to an actual heart, and as a dry lab teaching material, the product can withstand abundant practical use. The product is already being used actively for off the job training. We hope you will consider using our heart models for such training.
Reasons to Select Our Heart Model
Created from Actual DICOM Data
Each model is faithfully created from CT scan data of an actual heart. In addition to standard adult models, we can manufacture models in diseased states, such as congenital heart disease. Rather than using a pig’s heart in a wet lab, this dry lab model is accurately modeled from an actual human heart, making it optimal as an off the job training material.
Made of Soft Resin that Can Be Cut and Sutured
Unlike conventional heart modes, this model is made from soft resin that has a texture nearly identical to human tissue. This allows it to actually be cut with a scalpel and sutured. Furthermore, it is also possible to customize the model with specific parts (such as coronary arteries), and it can be used repeatedly.
Training is Possible Anywhere
Different from a wet lab, training can be carried out in any location, as long as the medical tools (such as scalpel) required for training are on hand. We provide specialized models with parts specific for certain surgical training. It is conveniently easy to transport. Our dry lab model is easily used at distant seminar venues, and is not being widely utilized at off the job training sites.
Our heart project was selected as an AMED* project.
*AMED: Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development, National Research and Development Agency
Our heart project was selected as a Medical Industry Collaborative Venture (development & commercialization.*
For the next three years, we will be furthering our research with thee goal of utilizing our technology for pre-surgical simulations in the medical field.
We aim to contribute to the medical field, shortening operation time, decreasing risk, and increasing success rates for highly difficult heart surgeries.
We hope that our product will assist you as an off the job training material.
*Medical Industry Collaborative Venture A project working to develop and commercialize medical devices to support the needs of the medical field, encouraging collaborative and shared work with medical institutions, and new entrants into the medical device field (such as SMEs and start-ups with advanced manufacturing technology).
Dry Lab Heart Model Product Lineup
Regular Adult Model
Our standard model is made from CT data of a standard adult heart. The exterior, internal structuring, and even the cavity of the coronary artery are reproduced.
Pediatric Congenital Heart Disease Model
The Pediatric Congenital Heart Disease Model is made with flexible material. This product series captures four of the main pediatric congenital heart diseases. We provide a chance to conduct pediatric training, which would otherwise be difficult in a wet lab.
Surgery Training Model
The world’s first organ model for easy surgical training in a dry environment. Compact and easy-to-carry, allowing for immediate real training to be carried out in various locations.
3D Pulsating Type Coronary Bypass Training System
The Pulsating Heart Model is a 3D model fitted with a pulsation device. We make it possible to conduct off pump coronary bypass training in a dry lab environment.
If you are an instructor or are considering an Off the Job Training program,
please get in touch.
In addition to the heart models introduced here, we can also customize additional models to fit the program being implemented.
Furthermore, we also provide advice on utilization for Off the Job Training.
