From surgical training and education to medical device development and biomechanical testing, SurgiSTUD™ delivers a superior platform at a significantly reduced cost.
What is a HipSTUD™?
Introducing Hip Surgical Training and Utility Devices
A Realistic, High-Quality Surgical Training Tool
With a number of models and add-ons, we can create SurgiSTUD™ Hip models that mimic the most important anatomic and physiologic aspects of the operative environment.
SurgiSTUD™ models provide significant cost savings over existing cadaveric models. Students can now train on several of their own models rather than sharing a single cadaver with other students, and for less overall cost.
From normal anatomy to severe deformities, choose from a variety of anatomies and pathologies, with more constantly being added to our catalogue. Or send us a CT scan and we’ll make you a patient-specific model.
Exactly What You Need
We can modify the bone quality, anatomic pathology, surgical approach, and numerous other features to custom-build you a training model that matches your educational goals.
How do HipSTUDs™ Work?
Realistic Body Cast
Options to cast each model in radiolucent soft foam tissue to house internal anatomies and provide haptic surgical depths for a variety of different surgical techniques.
Muscles and Tendons
HipSTUD™ features custom synthetic muscles and tendons that provide a realistic platform for dissection, retraction, cutting, and repairing soft tissue components during arthroplasty procedures.
Customizable to Your Training Needs
HipSTUD™ have been optimized for demonstration with a variety of surgical approaches including mini posterior, posterior, anterior, and lateral.
Synthetic Bone Architecture
The synthetic bone of a STUD is made with a corticocancellous architecture that mimics human bone. This architecture provides excellent radiographic anatomy and permits the use of injectable bone cements.
Biomechanical Performance of Synthetic Bone
The synthetic bone of a STUD provides high-fidelity biomechanical performance for bone resection and hardware fixation. Specify the bone mineral density, and we will provide a model with analogous bony biomechanical performance. See our publications section for more information.
Revolutionizing Surgical Education
HipSTUD™ training models are patented biofidelic training platforms of real human pathology. By providing a superior training platform at significant cost-savings over cadavers, we improve surgical training quality and access on a global scale.
