LifeLike BioTissue Inc.

Established: 2010, LifeLike BioTissue Inc. is an Ontario-based company that develops a growing suite of products that have the same mechanical properties as live tissue. These products are ideal for the acquisition, training, and practice of basic and procedural surgical skills.

LifeLike products look, feel and behave like human tissue and provide a training medium superior to other suture and surgical training kits, animal tissues and live animals.

LifeLike BioTissue’s proprietary and patent-pending technology has been under development for more than a decade by biomedical engineers at the University of Western Ontario. The technology was originally developed for implant and tissue replacement purposes. However, thanks to support from the Ontario Centres of Excellence and the University of Western Ontario, LifeLike BioTissue Inc. was created to commercialize this high fidelity technology as a surgical training tool to increase practice and help improve patient care worldwide.
