SynDaver Lab Opens
Ogeechee Technical College

The Funeral Service Education (FSE) program at Ogeechee Technical College (OTC) recently acquired a new SynDaver synthetic cadaver for instructional and lab demonstration use.  The SynDaver Mortuary Model can be used with a variety of medical labs, as well as for clinical embalming and anatomy labs. The model features an injectable vascular system, as well as the capacity for cosmetic feature setting, and a body cavity compatible with clinical embalming techniques. 

The SynDaver Synthetic Human is world famous for accurately reproducing detailed human anatomy with highly realistic materials. Individual tissues have been developed over the course of the last two decades to accurately mimic the look and feel of real human tissue for use in teaching medical and mortuary related classes and labs.

“This model will allow us to safely instruct students in a variety of lab settings,” said Michele Rupar, OTC’s FSE program director. “While actual human models are not always available, this synthetic model can be accessed as needed with minimal effort. We are excited to be able to add this advanced instructional tool to our program.” 

Ogeechee Tech is one of only three colleges to introduce this state-of-the art cadaver for use in instruction.
