SynDaver Animae Prototype Synthetic Tissue Cadaver

SynDaver Labs recently released this awe-inspiring video which demonstrates their prototype “Animae” synthetic tissue cadaver.

The $50,000 synthetic human “Animae is the first animated model from our award-winning SynDaver™ Synthetic Human (SSH) product line. The model includes standard SSH funtionality, as well as the ability to control motion of the arms, legs, head and jaw using a separate control panel.

SynDaver™ Animae includes skin with fat and fascia planes, every bone, muscle, tendon, and ligament in the body, fully articulating joints, a functioning respiratory system including trachea, lungs, and diaphragm, a complete digestive tract from the esophagus to rectum, the urinary tract (kidneys, bladder, and urethra), visceral organs (liver, gall bladder, pancreas, spleen), reproductive organs, a circulatory system with heart and coronary arteries, aorta, vena cava, and the primary arterial and venous trunks leading to the extremities.

The model may be covered with either the standard SynDaver™ synthetic human (pure wet chemistry) skin or our new organosilicate-synthetic human hybrid (polymer outer – wet inner) skin.
