‘Non-Biologic E-tissue’  – Pulse MDM’s custom non-biologic E-tissue can be realistically cut with monopolar and bipolar electrosurgical devices, leaving behind the charring you would find in a real clinical scenario.  It can be shaped to match your targeted anatomy and is shelf stable.  No more inconvenient trips to the grocery store to buy meat. Our E-tissue can be used in the OR as there are no live cells.

‘Meat Cartridge’ – A custom anatomy target cartridge designed to be loaded with ‘live tissue’ and snapped into the correct place gives surgeons practice with your medical device that cuts, ablates, sutures, excises. Additionally, live tissue can be cut using monopoly and bipolar electrosurgery devices. (‘Live tissue’ could be a tomato, a grape, beef tongue, sausage casing, fruit leather, or whatever is easily acquired and matches the characteristics of your anatomy target). The cartridge is engineered to present at the exact location and angle to provide surgeons with a true surgical experience.
