5-layer RealLayer™ Simulated Tissue Pad w/o Vessels (8.5 x 11.5 cm) - Light Skin & Mole/Lesion

The 5-layer RealLayer™ Simulated Tissue Pad combines several layers that mimic closely what one would find in a real abdominal wall. The layers are reinforced to tolerate tension and pulling while suturing and practicing other procedures.  Training Applications: Suturing, Knot Security & Burying.  Also can support training on mole biopsy, mole removal and skin reconstruction techniques.

Tensioning Base

SurgiReal is excited to announce the availability of a Tensioning Base for all of our 8.5x11.5 cm simulated tissue products. After a simulated tissue product is placed and secured in the Tensioning Base, it causes the tissue to conform to its radius to create a life-like surface tension on the simulated tissue. Additionally, when used with SurgiReal's 5-layer Simulated Tissue, the Tensioning Base provides better access to place the buried suture pattern.

Recent Testimonials

  • I was SO excited when I first discovered the SurgiReal product. I have utilized a variety of products over the years in my instruction and the SurgiReal products are my all time favorites!

    Karen A. Newell, PA-C, MMSc, Emory University
  • We conducted a dermatology segment in which we utilized the SurgiReal I&D pads. These pads were most helpful for me as faculty in demonstrating to the students the proper technique for performing an incision and drainage procedure.

    Toussaint Battley III, DNP, FNP-BC, Loyola University
  • We’ve used SurgiReal products for 2 years now – the texture and durability of the ‘skin’ is unmatched by other products. The students are able to re-use incisions multiple times.

    Mary Jo P. Wiemiller, PA-C, M.S., Marquette University
  • After using SurgiReal’s 5 layer simulated tissue pad myself I noticed a huge difference from other brands. The quality of the texture of the skin is superior to what I have used before and t’s not greasy like other brands. The ability to remove sutures and suture over the same area again without tearing the skin is one of the best qualities. That is what makes it great for students. It allows them to perfect their technique or try different suture techniques without worrying about space. It is an excellent product and I highly recommend it!

    LaBree Hans, PA-C South University, Tampa, PA Program
  • Our PA program selected SurgiReal for skins to teach suturing on. We had another product prior that we needed to replace. We selected SurgiReal based on the quality of the skins. The skins can be ordered in various depths which will allow us to teach suturing subcutaneous tissue.

    Dave Martin, MPAS, PA-C, Clinical Assistant Professor, Idaho State University
  • After years of messy pigs feet, our program started utilizing simulated tissues for our suture training. Through trial and error, we learned the hard way on the
    pros and cons of other companies out there. Some were less than realistic, others slimy and too friable. SurgiReal's 5 layer tissue pad has out performed
    all others as a more realistic, durable, and non-slimy alternative to natural tissues. We have used SurgiReal products since 2014 and will continue indefinitely.

    Jay R. Metzger, MPAS, PA-C, University of North Dakota
  • The students really enjoyed using the SurgiReal simulated tissue. It allowed them to have a realistic suturing experience that was also highly portable enabling them to practice suturing almost anywhere. This seemed to greatly improve their comfort with suturing skills and techniques. The only problem I had was trying to get them back.
