Synthetic Dogs Eliminate the Need For Canine Cadavers
These dogs are created with functioning bodily systems.
A doctor in Florida is practising on a realistic, synthetic dog made by Florida-based SynDaver Labs. It comes complete with realistic organs and blood. SynDaver’s cadavers, both human and canine, are created with functioning bodily systems.
The dog has a heartbeat, a circulatory system, lungs which inflate and it bleeds when a surgeon cuts into its flesh. The skin is realistic and the rubbery organs are clammy to the touch. They can also be customised with pathologies, illnesses and complications.
While the dog looks like something you’d see in a Halloween horror display – all bulging eyes and bared teeth – the product could eliminate the need for canine cadavers, which are typically euthanised shelter animals.
Each cadaver can be operated on some 35-40 times. SynDaver sells each cadaver with a service contract, so the cut-up bodies are repaired over and over.
