Our large suture pad (17 cm x 17 cm) is a great suture practice tool and can be used for extra practice, study or teaching. The suture pad is made of the highest quality silicone material, comes with three layers of tissue: skin, muscle and fat, providing the next best anatomical simulation to practice on, after an actual human flesh or a dead animal. There are 14 cuts of various types (10 types), width and depth and lots of space to add additional cuts. Our suture pad has been redesigned and improved after medical students used it and came up with ways to improve the product - students are the primary users of our product, so who to trust if not the actual user? Our latest product update features a built in "mesh layer" between the skin and the fat layer, making the pad more durable and long lasting. Moreover, you are getting a complete package of tools needed to practice suturing and no need to look for other essentials. For a moderate price you get a great value! In the suture kit you get: Large suture pad with wounds Hegar needle holder Adson forceps Suture scissors Scalpel blades (3-pack) Suture thread (16-pack) Storage case with zipper So convenient and helps to keep you organized in a world of exams, study and school life chaos! The suture practice set can be used for: Exams and study practice Teaching demonstrations Practice before starting a real job or residency NOTE: This product is for demonstration purposes only and is not intended for use on humans or animals.

Then one day I ran into one of my old teachers and he told me about these suture kits that you can buy online, that are so much better than the gross meat and banana peels. They are more realistic and are made just like real human flesh. So I went online and did some googling and a bunch of these suture kits came up. After some research and reading reviews I chose to go with this product. I clicked buy and the wait began. I was actually excited to see what this is all about and if the product was actually as good as it was promised to be. I am not a big online shoppers and have gotten super crappy products before, so I am very cautious.
Soon enough the product has arrived and my first impressions were good. I liked the delivery time, arrived quick, I liked the packaging, the tools that I needed were already included, nicely and neatly organized. The board itself looked and felt quite realistic, similar to human flesh indeed and had lots of cuts, plus space for more cuts to be made.
So overall I was pleasantly surprised, as I tend to be a skeptic and a critic. But the product was good, I’ve been using the suture pad and the tools for a while now, making new incisions over and over again, suturing away and getting better and better. Can’t wait till I can actually finally operate on a face all on my own! Soon this day will come, I know it!
So here are my thoughts on this product:
I like how this kit is organized. I tend to be messy and lose things, but here all the tools come in a box and I just put everything back in its place. It’s a complete tool set and has all that you need to practice: nylon threads, hegar needle holder, adson forceps, scissors, blades, etc. Not all online products had the whole set, which was part of the reason I went with this brand.
The pad itself is made out of silicone, feels very natural, doesn’t rip easily, seems like its going to last quite some time, like its actually a very well made product. The mesh layer is a big deal too, I guess that’s the part that prevents the rips and makes it durable. Apparently this “mesh layer” is their strong point.. So far so good, no complains.
The board had variety of wounds as well as space for me to make my own additional cuts. The size of the board is just right, I didn’t want to get a pocket size one as its just too small and not enough space for sufficient practice.
The price was good. Very good value – because you get all this stuff in the package, that you will definitely use. As a broke student, I count my dollars!
I wish the package included more suture thread types, I know nylon ones are good and most popular ones, but I would suggest to add variety of thread. Also I’d make the board even bigger with more space for cuts. But these are just my suggestions, everyone has their own preferences.
Overall to sum up, I am very happy with this product and would recommend it to other students.
Thinking back to my time in ER, just in the beginning of my career I had to often do micro surgery and suturing in emergency room often on patients faces and first few times were definitely nerve-racking. Not only you have to know the right technique but also having a steady hand helps a lot. I think practicing on an education model would definitely benefit any student to get the suture hand movements and knots down packed ready for real life. This kit is a great start!
