The perfect accessory to any of our Small Suture Pads, the Tensioning Base acts to hold your pad in place conforming it to a rounded surface to replicate life-like surface tension of an incision. After securing your pad to the base, once cut, the incision will “open up” allowing the student to gain realistic access to the lower muscle and fascia layers for deep suturing. The bottom of the base features a tacky rubber to prevent your Base from sliding across the table mid-suture.
Knee Joint extended
This 3D printed specimen demonstrates the ligaments of the knee joint with the leg in extension; it represents the same specimen as MP1807 knee joint printed in a flexed position. In the anterior view, with the patella and part of the patellar ligament removed. Both tibial and fibular collateral ligaments are intact. Medially, the insertions of the adductor magnus and semimembranosus muscles are retained, with the oblique popliteal ligament reflected onto the posterior aspect of the joint capsule. Laterally, the insertion of the biceps femoris and origins of the popliteus (covered by the arcuate popliteal ligament) and soleus muscles have been preserved.
