The study of human cadaver tissues has served medicine well over the years. We routinely offer courses and supply adequate facilities for cadaver training revolving around cosmetic, orthopedic, and internal medicine procedures. Additionally, research indicates that cadaver labs provide valuable insights to companies interested in the development of medical devices.
Information is integral to development. With human cadaver training, it is possible to discern quite a lot about a procedure or device, including details such as:
- Optimal placement of a device in actual human anatomy
- Accurate spatial relationships between a device and its accessories and anatomical structures
- Dimensional compatibility between new technology and human anatomy
Advanced Benefits to Further Innovation
Cadaver labs aren’t all about the tissue, as one may expect. This learning environment may also incorporate imaging equipment, surgical and interventional supplies, and other equipment that facilitates the fullest extent of observation possible. The implementation of appropriate mechanisms allows manufacturers to observe essential details relating to tissue/device interface, including how loading conditions will affect device performance.
Cadaver training improves development by alleviating guesswork:
- Clinical testing performed on animal models is insufficient due to the significant anatomical differences that exist between animals and humans.
- Animal models are not an accurate representation of the physiological disease states that exist in human anatomy.
- Posture differences in animals (quadrupeds) and humans (bipeds) can affect device demonstration.
Innovation in the area of medical devices is integral to the ongoing improvement in patient outcomes. Med Ed Labs understands the value of research and development in the betterment of the medical community as a whole. Our team has been conducting successful human cadaver labs around the country for several years. The use of cadaver labs can assist with procedure discussion, identification of disease states and how different states respond to proposed technology, and also standard anatomy review.
We have conducted medical training facilities throughout the United States, including Hawaii, and also in Montreal. Our mobile lab services also provide a convenient learning facility in which physicians, developers, and other professionals can gain relevant knowledge and practical clinical expertise.
